  • Coding:  We believe that our technical leaders should always be coding, exploring new areas and challenging themselves.  You will ensure all code is delivered to best practices. 
  • Architecture:  You will be comfortable working with clients and the development team to lead the solution architecture approach for projects and designing the best solution within scope that works for our client.

  • Understanding:  Playing a major part in the entire lifecycle of solution delivery, you will have knowledge and experience from ideation, to UX, to architecture, to code, to testing and deployment.
  • Mind-set:  Thinking big and acting fast, you will need a start-up mind-set with enterprise awareness.  You can manage competing priorities and adjust plans quickly to meet project outcomes.
  • Mentoring:  We continuously share knowledge and learn from each other.  With the technical experience you bring, you will be an inspirational teacher to your peers, mentoring the team and bringing them up to speed on new approaches, languages and skills.
  • Influencing:  You understand both the client’s problem and technical solution and you’re able to advocate for excellence and effect change. 
  • Communication:  Your people skills will be used just as much as your coding and technical skills, so solid communication and experience dealing with clients at a high level is essential to your success.
  • Awareness:  You will be able to keep up with the current state of the entire project at all times and be fully aware of any potential blockers.  If there is an internal or external force that threatens slowing the project down, then you should know about it.
