  • A record of driving successful delivery of web and/or mobile applications.

  • Demonstrable understanding of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), application of Agile methodologies (Scrum, Kanban), and using them to effectively deliver technology products to market.

  • Comfort with switching gracefully between strategic (project management, account management, etc.) and tactical (scrum master, requirements discussions, etc.) contexts as the situation demands.

  • Previous experience developing web or mobile applications desired.
