Coding. Our Leads never go post-technical. We think that it’s important for technical leadership to continue to code. Our clients don’t all work in one language or platform, and neither do we.
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.
Core Dev Practices. You should be proficient with practices like TDD, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Infrastructure automation.
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.
Agile. We believe strongly in agile delivery practices, having implemented them for ourselves and our clients for a long time now. You should be very comfortable working with Agile, Lean and Continuous Delivery practices -- and love it as much as we do.
