  • Experience with Agile software development, ex Scrum, XP, TDD etc

  • You can reuse large chunks of code & engines from others, you’re not one of these devs who can only work with his own code, coz you know, everyone else’s code is crap
  • You can manage a team of developers, organize and supervise the work of team members
