Working at Carmen Data:

Everyone who works here can cover the bases and switch jobs if there is a demand for it. Your coding and database query skills are most crucial, but any extra experience you have with front end design and development would be a bonus, but is not essential.

As with any job in this industry, the technologies change fast, so there is some legacy upkeep of old tools as well as experimentation with new technologies.
