ABOUT YOU

  • You are a problem solver. You are deeply curious, ask thoughtful questions, and rarely shy away from a challenge.
  • You love learning new things. You’re excited by new technology and love that your work affords the opportunity for continuous learning. You’re always eager to explore a new tool at work or to pick up a new hobby outside of the office.
  • You love good design. While you spend most of your time ensuring tasks and projects are on-time and on-budget, you keep the end user experience in mind with an eye for well-designed, well-executed, high-quality work.
  • You love helping others. You’re an excellent (and patient) communicator, keen to share your knowledge and put your expertise to use to help teammates, clients, and the community at large.
