  • Experience using frameworks, such as Angular JS (both old and new versions)

  • Good understanding of AWS cloud services. (different services and how they work and at a minimum have tested a few on your own.)

  • Experience with cross-browser development.

ATTRIBUTES FOR SUCCESS:

  • Demonstrate proven experience (with tangible outcomes and results) and like being a part of a team working with other clever and motivated engineers.

  • Be a great communicator and capable of not just doing the work, but teaching others and explaining the “why” behind complicated technical decisions.

  • Be open to good ideas (wherever they come from) and not afraid to roll-up your sleeves.
