  • Strong problem-solving skills are essential for software engineers to troubleshoot technical issues independently and find creative solutions to challenges that arise during the development process.

  • Ability to communicate technical concepts to non-technical audiences.
  • Ownership -Take ownership of projects, ensuring excellence in execution and accountability for results. Foster a sense of responsibility and pride in delivering high-quality work

  • Experience in integration and end-to-end testing
