Build domain knowledge and understand the user \u0026 business problems you\u0027re solving. \u003Cbr /\u003E QUALITY DELIVERABLES - Good software architecture - at QuoteCenter every developer is an architect. You are responsible for creating systems that are appropriately maintainable, scalable, and extensible. \u003Cbr /\u003E TAKING OWNERSHIP - When a problem comes to your attention, take care of it. If you\u0027re too busy with something more important either assign it to someone else or set a reminder to come back to it later. \u003Cbr /\u003E ALWAYS LEARNING - Be willing to learn whatever technologies, tools, or patterns necessary to solve a problem. Don\u0027t avoid a problem because \u0022someone else \u0027owns\u0027 the code\u0022 - learn the code, learn the domain, solve the problem. \u003Cbr /\u003E ALWAYS A MENTOR \u0026ndash; Continually look for the chance to share your knowledge and skills with others. Even the most seasoned professional can learn new tricks from the most junior developer. There is always something you know that someone else doesn\u0026rsquo;t (and vice versa), so share! \u003Cbr /\u003E EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION - Write and speak clearly and concisely. Be prepared to explain your work, decisions, and ideas to your colleagues. Graciously challenge ideas that don\u0027t seem right, no matter where they originate. \u003Cbr /\u003E GOOD TEAMMATE - Have a sense of humor. Build relationships with your colleagues. Work out differences with your colleagues directly. Go to your manager if you\u0027re unable to resolve it there. Actively work to disrupt backchannel and office politics. Look for ways to make the work environment better for everyone.\u003C/div\u003E
