what we look for
The Funnel tech organisation is known for having a strong agile mindset. Rather than trying to release code in big chunks, they break down problems into small chunks and make small, but frequent, releases.
I had a couple of discussions with two separate colleagues a while back. At first I was not aware of the concept we were discussing (and mutually appreciating). After some thinking and after one of them actually put a name on it I realized that what I was thinking of - and really liked having seen so prominently in our organisation - was emotional maturity.
One of the most deciding skills that we look for in a candidate - junior or senior - is the appreciation for and practice of collaboration. For a junior that will - because of lack of necessary opportunity mostly - be a question of our estimate of their aptitude and inclination.
