  8. Actively work to transfer knowledge of Company practices and technical skills to other people (including delivery areas) to grow adoption

  10. Receive constructive criticism and take necessary steps to improve where/when needed
  11. If there is bench time, leverage it to work on any assigned projects and/or for self-study to advance technical skills
  12. Developed code should promote principles of 12 factor apps, availability, scalability, maintainability and security
  13. Maintain positive outlook in handling continuous change and bring a sense of urgency in driving positive change at Company (innovation, faster time to market, improved quality)
  14. Embrace an organization model that is self-directed/self-managed as a team and as individuals
  15. Satisfy all administrative-type requirements such as Prism timesheets, HR timesheets, performance management process, annual compliance, security training, etc.
