Key skills & experience 1
Most important is to have the combination of web developer experience and a passion for Accessibility. You are excited about the career direction of ‘accessibility expert’ for web applications.

You must be able to demonstrate knowledge of accessibility principles and issues including familiarity with WCAG guidelines (current and historical), the challenges that accessibility requirements may present to the web developer, approaches or standard design patterns and how to implement them appropriately in HTML, CSS, Javascript.

You will have to be confident as a Javascript Developer within a large team. The development process will include using GIT to manage branches for each change, merging branches and resolving conflicts, submitting for independent code review, following best practice processes etc.

It is expected that you will become an expert at HTML and CSS. You must be confident with Javascript but you might not be an expert (although expertise is always highly valued within the Oleeo development team).

You should have knowledge of designing for web accessibility standards and using assistive technology including screen readers, voice control and magnification. You will become an expert in the use of JAWS.

Turning WCAG guidelines into coded solutions is open to some interpretation and compromise. You will have to be able to discuss interpretations, present alternative solutions for evaluation, and to evaluate solutions proposed by others. This will involve verbal discussions as well as email so you must be an effective communicator in these situations.

Work with various teams developing new features to share accessibility expertise as projects move from conception to launch.
