They are comfortable working in multiple languages at any given time, interested in doing deep research to choose the best tool for the job, and comfortable stepping into new challenges as diverse as managing a hospital security review or working directly with customers on data integrations.

  • Security - Understand the principles of securing and managing sensitive data; background with HIPAA or other protected data a plus
