Deep understanding of tools such as Git for workflow and development, and tools such as Travis-ci for continuous integration within projects.

Working with internal teams to develop and design SOW & other forms of product/work requests, for external teams to utilize over the course of the project.

Regular interactions with the core team including any active CTO at the time, including scheduling, maintaining, and quality-checking the process of these interactions over time.

Beyond these fundamental requirements, the job and tasks associated would look like the following:

Developing with and/or training team members to achieve goals and complete requisite tasks.
