  • Good writing skills – we would love to see blog posts, readme files for past projects, clear comments in code, etc.
  • Confidence when presenting work to colleagues, clients and prospective clients.
  • Willing to present at conferences, meetups and other events.
  • Loves to help others solve problems.
  • Open to feedback and input.
  • Contributes to process improvements and brings new ideas to the table.
