UML as a TW requirement tells you a lot about the job, I think. If they rely on it, then they probably use it for design and development... UML not only describes a system, it can generate the scaffolding code for the whole system, or at least for each component of the system. So I would expect the dev team to be reasonably invested in UML as a development methodology. That's good news for you -- it means they actually *design* their software. If they do it right, it means you have diagrams to illustrate the design, from user characterizations and use cases, through process flows, all the way down to class interfaces. It's worth it to expose yourself to UML just so you can land a job on such a team.

That plus Agile, and you're finally in the 21st Century!
