  • You have first-hand experience of the challenges that running on the cloud presents [and how to overcome them]
  • You are an experienced .Net developer that is highly proficient in C#
  • You can demonstrate that you can write clean, maintainable code
  • You enjoy working with users and product management to properly understand the problem domain and translate these understandings into a great product that is a delight to use
  • You have a focus on automated testing and reach for it by default while understanding what is and isn’t useful to test
