Desire to learn new technologies (passion, not budding interest) commonly found in data center centric implementations.

SLAs and standardization are equally important to having the desire and interest in deploying and maintaining multiple non-standard backend solutions. This is not a production e-commerce site, however skills developed in that environment are helpful.
