You should have programmer-level knowledge of AS3, an intimate understanding of the principles of good interface design, and a solid professional track record of developing Flash or Flex applications with sophisticated logic and integration with other client/server components.

You should also be independent and self-guided, able to manage deadlines and solve problems with originality and efficiency.

Specific requirements include:

– At least three years of professional Flash/Flex development with rich media and/or interface design focus. Ideally, you’re comfortable with both the Flex and Flash development environments, but you can be an expert in one and capable of learning the other.

– Bachelor’s degree with major in design technology, computer science, or related field.

– Impeccable: ActionScript 3, OOP, Flash components, client/server/database integration with web services. Experience working with frameworks such as PureMVC and third-party code libraries.

– Good: Photoshop, animation in Flash.

– Nice but not necessary: HTML5, PHP, Java, JSP, C, and SQL. iPhone and Android development. Flash remoting via AMF. Unit test design.

– The ability to devise original creative solutions and the research skills, discipline, and professionalism to bring them successfully to fruition.
