  • Pragmatic solutions to business problems that start at requirements gathering and end in delivering value
  • Have had experience or want to have experience working in diverse, cross functional agile teams - we value people that want to push themselves into unknown territories

  • Understand that technology is a tool and changes over time requiring continual learning and mastery, always bringing new ideas to the table 💡
  • Have a deep understanding of system design and the surrounding architecture
  • We aren’t wedded to languages, but you should know how an application works for a customer
