As a lead, we’re looking for a breadth of experience in a lot of languages, and expertise in one or two: Java, Ruby, Python, Scala, .NET, Clojure, GoLang. </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Core Dev Practices.</strong><span style="font-weight: 400;"> You should be proficient with practices like TDD, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Infrastructure automation.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Understanding and often playing a major part in the entire cycle of software consulting and delivery, from ideation, to project conception, to UX, to code, to testing, to deployment, and around again.  </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Agile.</strong><span style="font-weight: 400;"> We believe strongly in agile delivery practices, having implemented them for ourselves and our clients for a long time now.

That means you can manage competing priorities, that you’re ready to pivot or adjust plans quickly, and that you understand the role you and your team play in major organizations’ tech strategies.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Influencing priorities,</strong><span style="font-weight: 400;"> for both the team and the client.
