About You

You speak both backend and frontend technologies. You know how to explain issues to a project manager, product owner, designer or client and are comfortable working in an agile environment with regular feedback loops.

You have already worked on a wide variety of projects, both large and small, and are comfortable jumping in wherever needed in the development team. You enjoy quickly getting up to speed and contributing to the success of your team. You’re comfortable working remotely and take responsibility for your own work schedule. You have strong communication skills, and are able to explain the reasoning behind your decisions.

You know that TDD, automated testing and peer reviews are necessary to reduce bugs and write production quality code. You also know that code quality trumps code quantity and call Jeff Atwood’s advice to mind that you should “always code as if the person who ends up maintaining your code is a violent psychopath who knows where you live.”

Asking for help is ok and you are passionate about sharing your knowledge of new technologies and methodologies with others.

While you spend a lot of time writing software, you put the user and their experience first. Experience has taught you that something without a user has little worth.

We can’t wait hear your battle stories about the time you were actively participating in the design, prototype and a production stages of a new product feature.
