- You are a team player who enjoys working with and helping other developers and QA. We speak openly, and therefore you don't take well-intentioned critical feedback personally!🙏
- You like to work in the frontend and backend! Both are related to each other and are therefore, you know; indispensable. You have everything you need to know to develop a WordPress theme.💪
