  • Experience working in rapid product development process with focus on prototyping.
  • Experience managing, recruiting and mentoring technical members of the team.
  • A familiarity with agile and lean principles such as Scrum and Lean UX.
  • Good communication skills - both in written and aural form.
  • Great attention to detail.

Some more practical details...
