  • An understanding of the importance of how tech and product are tightly coupled, and the ability to provide input on both
  • A track record of contributing to organisational success through evaluating and selecting frontend technologies and by creating and enforcing standards for their use
  • Drive to continuously learn and improve, and a passion for mentoring other developers
  • The ability to speak eloquently on a range of topics based on experience, reading and experimentation
