A typical day could range from having a discussion with your team on the best approach for your development activities for the current sprint and the prioritization of additional work items, to strategizing on what improvements can be implemented based on what has been learned.

Your day could also include a deep-dive into an adjacent software stack in order to learn and contribute to a new area. You may be asked to ensure that whatever we are building we are able to monitor effectively in production, so that we can make subsequent decisions based on true and meaningful insights.
