We’re working with a startup building a voice-only mobile platform. They built their MVP on firebase and are in the process of transitioning off of firebase and over to postgres. They need someone to come help them figure out how and where to migrate a bunch of their event driven business logic that is currently sitting in firebase and then help them execute on this transition. You’d be working alongside 3-4 other folks from Forward.
