What You Will Be Doing 

Innovation Engineers need to be truly multi-discipline. You should be constantly scanning the universe for new big ideas, technologies, tools, tricks, techniques and so on.  You should be comfortable with cryptographic concepts.  You should be comfortable in high-level languages like Java, Kotlin, swift, Java Card C#, angular.js, node.js but you should be equally capable of bare metal development in C or maybe even small excursions into assembler. ​

New terms ideas and trends (like DLT, Blockchain, among the others) are not only a topic for a coffee break discussion to you; you actually might have a prototype to show. 

As you can tell, we really are looking for the broadest possible set of skills, and a strong desire to learn new ones. ​
