This is not a "sit there and we'll tell you what to do" kind of role. It involves an exciting breadth of responsibility and real impact. Success in this role will require:

  • Eye for design- bring your creative flair!
  • Exceptionally good emotional intelligence and people skills
  • Sheer hustle and drive
  • Fast learner

If you're a self starter and itching to 'punch above your weight class', we want to hear from you!
