Software engineering: Some understanding of Agile development practices and design patterns.
Comfort with setting and meeting deadlines, goal-setting and short development cycles.
Willingness to take responsibility for projects and be open to direction and new ways of building software.
Unit and integration testing: Ability to write and maintain testing frameworks to verify code.
Documentation: Ability to write implementation and interface documentation, and a strong understanding of why documentation is necessary.
Communications: Good written and oral communications skills are absolutely necessary!
Forward thinking: Ability to consider future growth and analyze scalability of existing systems and software, and to apply those insights to current development practices.
