If you have experience in deployment that’s great, but isn’t required.

This Shiny application will be your main role, but not your only one. As a small company, we often take on a variety of jobs. In particular, helping out with new and on-going Shiny related projects. An approximate split would be 2.5 days on the SAAS Shiny app and 2.5 days on other projects.
