- Confident with Git branching and merging and using Github.
- Solid discipline using CI/CD
- Strong experience with Test-Driven Development (TDD)
- Happy working with plain Rails testing and development conventions and keeping it simple
- Experience redeveloping existing apps using a strangler pattern
- Confidence to speak up and challenge the status quo
The client initially used Cucumber scripts for automated testing. However, in the new version of the app, they want to use the standard Systems Testing features within Rails.
The client uses Trello for task management, and they are building out a repository of product requirements using Productboard.
