  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or similar IT degree and experience demonstrating DevOps and IT experience.
  • Fluency with either the C# or Python programming languages, and willingness to advance in both.
  • IIS administrative experience, including .aspx and WCF (.svc) webservices.

  • Ability to clearly understand, explain, document, and repeat an established process, with eventual goals toward training others for and/or automating that process.
