About You

You value code quality, scalability, and reliability. You are not beholden to one language, design pattern, or framework, but instead, you believe that a true craftsman always chooses the right tool for the job. You understand business value and are all about creating it. You value working on a team with other developers and can communicate complex ideas with ease. You love learning and experimenting with new technologies, but would never neglect the fundamentals. You don’t have an over-sized ego. Given some mockups and good guidance, you should be able to implement small features. The most important attributes we’re looking for in this role are an eagerness to learn, and the ability to put your hand up and ask for help when you do get stuck.
