  • Good understanding of Web Accessibility Requirements to meet WCAG AA level, ability to design and develop to standard and test. 
  • Cross browser testing (IE 10+, all major browsers and devices) 
  • Experience using CMS systems in general – please indicate which in your application (WordPress and Magento 2 are a plus)
