Proficiency in database technologies such as MongoDB and PostgreSQL, as well as intensive TDD practice, is expected. A degree in Computer Science or a related field is preferred, and experience or knowledge in BDD is a must.

It would be advantageous to have experience in event storming or event modeling, as well as knowledge of tools such as SpecFlow and GitHub Actions.
