My client is a NYC-based web development and technology firm of expert developers who leverage the latest technologies to solve any challenge ranging from eCommerce to Content Management Systems.

For Mid-level and up: we would like to see, at a minimum, a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field or at least 2 years work experience (full-time) in the same role we seek.

We expect that all Junior candidates take the exam at my client.
