  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Proven ability to present to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Understand the importance of software development methodologies (Agile, Scrum, Waterfall, RAD, RUP) and software design techniques (UML, entity relationship diagramming, use cases, data flow diagramming); know how they impact the quality of your design process, team collaboration, and work product
  • Working knowledge of databases such as MongoDB, Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL
  • Object oriented design skills
  • US citizenship and ability and willingness to obtain a security clearance
