You should list the technologies you have experience with on your resume. Do so in the skills section of your resume. If you deem it necessary to explain the technologies you have experience with in your resume, do so in the work experience section, where you can succinctly illustrate how your expertise with a technology helped you achieve a particular company's goal.
If you are knowledgeable about specific technologies that are key components to the role, then you must list them! Hiring managers want to know the skills you possess that are related to the position they are seeking to fill. Therefore, if the role is technical in nature and the job description lists specific technologies, those technologies should be listed on your resume (but only if you possess them). Don't include antiquated technologies that are no longer relevant. Just because you know something doesn’t mean it merits inclusion. Your resume is a marketing tool, one that should support your qualifications for the role, and highlight the key strengths and accomplishments that make you a strong fit for the role. The technologies you list should be relevant and tied to the role.
If you see a technology that is listed in the job description numerous times, then it is likely more important than a technology that is only referenced once. In your resume, list first the technology that is mentioned more than once. You can also describe how you used the technology to advance the company’s aims, leading to growth. Make sure that you include specific, measurable achievements whenever possible to further make your point that you are an appropriate choice for their needs.
