  • Capable of producing well-tested, documented, maintainable code from design documents and group discussions
  • Comfortable taking part in design reviews and code reviews as a means of achieving high code quality and maintainability
  • Experience developing software in a Linux/Unix environment
  • Experience using version control systems, bug ticketing systems, and other common software development infrastructure
  • Excellent written and spoken English communications skills

If you really want to impress us, you might also have one or more of the following:

  • Experience writing software in other languages, particularly Python
  • An educational background related to software development, software engineering, or information technology
  • Experience working with multiple languages, development frameworks, and other software development tools
  • Experience with relational databases and writing complex queries in SQL
