- You’ll need to work around issues and limitations in 3rd party APIs, for example translating data to user friendly formats, applying additional transformations, breaking user requests into multiple API requests, combining results of multiple requests - whatever is needed to get the data into the format that marketers need.
- Reliably pushing updates to production through PRs, avoiding any negative impact on users
- Testing your work against 3rd party systems, which often involves creating test data
