A = You should have experience in Software architecture, Agile, TDD and Testing and it would be great if you can do Python, UI/UX or data mining.
B = You have some practical database design experience. If you have experience in DevOps and know some of the technologies we use (Flask, Docker and Postgres), that’s even better.
If you’re missing some of that and think you still have the chops, we say go for it.
