Here's who we're looking for:

You're the type of person who loves developing software. While you strive to be an expert in all the technologies that you use, you are in fact less interested in the technical aspects of developing software and your real passion is in your ability to express business knowledge in the software that you develop in order to improve and innovate the way that business processes are performed.

You are an excellent communicator. Besides the fact that you are patient and always clear when speaking, you are equally clear and thoughtful in your written communication. You understand that the real secret in being a good communicator is in having the ability to be mindful of the concerns and interests of your end users and colleagues who are reading your written messages. You communicate accurately, truthfully, and professionally in a way that is respectful of other people's time.

You are technically astute. You love the field of Computer Science and you spend a fair amount of your personal time reading and learning and practicing to improve your skills. You use the tools to develop your software like a craftsman, and you manage your own development function by automating application tests and deployment methods; you do these things because you know they enable you to maintain a higher level of software quality which gives you the ability to deliver new features needed by your end users in the shortest amount of time.
