  • Are a strong collaborator who can work not only with design patterns, but many other stakeholders from marketing to engineering.

  • Are able to provide a portfolio of projects (or samples of preview work) to which you have made a substantial contribution and/or make a portfolio presentation as part of the selection process.

 

It would be an advantage if you have experience working with embedded devices.
