Sound like you?

Architecture You have a strong understanding of the building blocks of a robust and scalable system. You are able to dissect business problems into well designed systems. You have the experience to know what to build and the discipline to know what not to.

CS Fundamentals You have an understanding of algorithms, data structures, design patterns and persistence technologies. You are able to select the right tool for the right job.

Distributed Systems You know how to build, debug, and monitor independently scalable and autonomous systems. You understand how to leverage messaging to encourage loosely-coupled coordination between systems.

Delivery Focused Code on a laptop doesn’t solve problems. You know that a project is only done once it's delivered and validated. Residential construction is a large problem to tackle. You are driven to complete a project because you know that 5 more problems are waiting to be tackled, and you do it all without sacrificing quality.

Web Technologies You have a strong understanding of the latest HTML / CSS / JavaScript tools and techniques. You have used JavaScript frameworks such as Angular, Backbone, Ember, or React.

Design Sense You excel at taking a mockup design and furiously translating it into a working site. You provide continuous feedback to ensure designs are providing the best user experience possible.
