Strong opinions on what constitutes “good code” and “bad code”.
The ability to listen to other people's strong opinions and willingness to change yours.
Sense of humor (everyone says this, but we really mean it!).
Whiteboard a new design for a part of the product and arguing over to how best implement it.
Build large features end-to-end (data model, middle tier, front-end), and understand how multiple features come together into a coherent story technically for the user.
Set an example for the engineering group about seniority in technical and product leadership.
