7digital Developer Skills
You care about software, you have a passion for what you do which you can clearly convey by
your actions rather than just waffly personal statements on your CV. For you it’s more than a job.
Experience otherwise is relative – 2 years working in an agile/XP manner is worth much more
to us than 5 in a traditional environment. If you’ve not got working experience with things like
TDD and refactoring (maybe you’ve always wanted to but your current job doesn’t allow for it)
show us you’re at least familiar with the concepts and that you really want to work in this kind of
environment and you’re still in with a good chance.
