* Highly exceptional coding skills in multiple programming languages
* Extensive experience building awesome, user-friendly, web-based applications using frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Django and Spring
* Proven ability to contribute and to "move the needle" in all aspects of a quality-centric, web and mobile-based application development environment (including database design, algorithms, front-end coding, and engineering operations)
