We have the following position in Charlotte in which the manager is really looking for a strong software developer.

Job Title: Software Developer
Duration: 6+ months
Location: Charlotte, NC
Description:
Looking for candidates who have a passion for software development.
It’s hard to say exactly how to identify that but it’s not always a factor of years of experience.
Seeing technologies listed on the resume that are not frequently seen in bank jobs often indicates they do programming for fun on the side.
Programmers with the right passion and aptitude don't necessarily have to know C#. In fact, the last developer the manager hired had never written code in C#.

Technologies listed: C#, Web API Framework, REST, jQuery, JavaScript, bootstrap, backbone, react

Examples of candidates the manager would be more inclined to look at, he would go with Candidate #1 over Candidate #2:
Candidate #1
Software Developer with 3 years of experience
Technologies: python, JavaScript, Java, angular, node.js. Some technologies not often used in IT department in a bank

Candidate #2
Senior Software Developer with 10 years of experience at Wells Fargo, Client, major insurance, etc
Technologies: C#, ADO.NET, SSIS, SSRS, SQL, etc
