What companies look for in a tech hire

My friend Ria tweeted this earlier today: If you are a software developer/engineer, please reply with a trait (or traits) that you look for in hiring new engineers (new grads). This can be something you glean from a resume, technical interview, behavorial interview, or all of the above. — Ria Galanos (@cscheerleader) October 20, 2019 I'm not hiring for a tech company but I thought I'd share some thoughts anyway.

Or, as Wayne Gretzky said "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." Why do I mention this?
