  • Knowledge of web fundamentals, including the TCP/IP stack, HTTP, the DOM, HTML, and CSS
  • Experience with a relational database, including familiarity with common query optimizations (e.g., using joins, eliminating N+1s)
  • Experience with a version control system, preferably Git

Extra credit if you have this!

  • Experience consulting or working as a freelancer
  • Experience as a member of a professional agile software development team
  • Consistent involvement in the tech community (e.g., speaking at conferences and meetups, mentoring less experienced practitioners, leading or volunteering time to organizations committed to supporting underrepresented groups in our industry)
  • A track record of self-directed, continuing education
  • Experience with multiple device platforms (e.g., web, iOS, Android), programming languages, programming paradigms (e.g., object-oriented, functional)
  • Experience with non-relational data stores
  • Experience with cloud platforms (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure), containerization tools (e.g., Docker), and orchestration systems (e.g., k8s)
  • Experience building accessible user interfaces
  • Experience implementing visual and interactive designs using advanced JavaScript and markup/stylesheet languages
  • Experience with commonly-used back-end frameworks (e.g., Express, Rails, Spring) and front-end frameworks (e.g., React, Angular, Vue.js)
