Use this job post sample where I highlighted keywords and phrases for you.  I also added my personal notes about how I would approach writing a resume in response to this job.

Pay attention whenever the role is described. This section was not originally in bullets. I did that myself so I could study it more.  I can already see several keywords here highlighted in blue.
