- Knowledge of browser feature support and graceful degradation techniques where features are lacking (IE :-) ).
- Great communication skills in English (written and verbal).
- Comfortable with Git.
- A commitment for keeping your code clean, well organized, and DRY.
- Ability to accept feedback and come up with creative solutions around that feedback.
- Ability to help and support co-workers and clients around projects.
