What does your company value in a developer?
There are a lot of different components we look for in a developer but the 3 important traits we look for are:
- Innovation – We will test to see if you can effectively collaborate with people and we don’t expect everyone to know everything. The way you critically think to solve problems and the ability to take the initiative are important to us.
- Playing to Win – We look for candidates who are problem solvers and know how to accomplish the end goal. The ability to focus on the deliverables are key.
- Culture Fit – There are plenty of qualified people in the tech industry but we also look for developers who are flexible, agile, and collaborative. The chemistry to work with different personalities and being considerate to other team members are important.
