-        You’ve developed JavaScript application/APIs in a TDD environment 

-        Experience using source control and managing branches efficiently       

-        Keen learner and interested in sharing knowledge with others


Bonus points (but not essential):


-         You have experience using JavaScript frameworks including React, Redux
