Each individual values quality and pursues the proof of quality by consistently writing tests.

•Ability to work closely with other developers as part of a team or minimally, in a paired environment for 8 hours each day
•Strong communication skills and an ability to articulate technical vision while understanding business requirements. A conviction to ones implementation approach but not so unwavering that they cannot be swayed based on sound logic and feedback from their peers to see a "higher value " implementation.
•Knowledge of the cloud and deployment expectations and complexities. Developers should be capable of deploying application 'bits' to AWS or other similar cloud environment.
•DevOps promotes the collapse of different functions into one; QA, IT, Dev etc. As a result, each developer will have a working knowledge of Ruby, Linux OS commands and be equally comfortable at the command line as they are in the IDE.

•Additionally, candidates could benefit from a working knowledge of Spring, Java and Bash. To be effective an experience with system administration, UNIX, process management, deployment technologies.
•Candidates will be agile practitioners, having achieved proficiency in agile methodologies through years of experimentation and learning. A demonstration of more than just the basics is required to be successful. Candidates should demonstrate a deep experience participating in standups/daily scrums, planning meetings, iteration retrospectives etc.
