  • Able to break designs into development plans and delegate tasks to more junior Technologists
  • Worked as part of an agile team using modern tools (Azure DevOps, Jira, GitHub, etc.)
  • A willingness to travel for key collaboration sessions

It would be a bonus if you had:

  • Strong presentation and writing skills

  • Explored many different areas of technology, like web, mobile apps, IoT, or AR/VR
