– Solid understanding of all components of an application ecosystem – back/front/API/data/etc
– You embrace the fundamental principles behind Agile development, and enjoy collaborating with teammates
– You have a pragmatic approach to design – you don’t choose the latest framework unless you are sure it is the best tool for the job, and you are prepared to articulate how we will support it 5 years from now
– Experience working with AWS technologies including examples of when you chose NOT to leverage one
– Experience building microservices or distributed systems within a larger ecosystem
– Knowledge of modern browser/mobile application architectures, and how to design applications for both
