  • Experience with industry-standard DevOps tooling, such as Maven or Gradle, Jenkins, and Git.
  • Experience with containerized software deployment and container orchestration platforms such as Kubernetes.
  • Experience with relational databases such as PostgreSQL, particularly interfacing with a database using technologies such as JDBC, JPA, or Hibernate.
  • Experience with the frontend portion of full stack development - Javascript or Typescript with modern frameworks and build systems, such as React, Redux, and Webpack.
