  • be familiar with Agile and tools such as JIRA and Confluence. 
  • work well as part of a team. 
  • be comfortable learning and adapting to changes in work assignments and remain flexible as priorities shift.

  • be able to apply problem-solving techniques to solve technical or operational problems.  

Familiarity or experience with any of the following tools is preferred but not required:
