Attitude: Positive, tenacious, curious, fun. No task is below you. If you’re seeking to stay in one lane and build a widget, this position isn’t for you. We all act with ownership over the company’s success and love having responsibility over many areas.

Qualities: Purpose-driven. Relentless in achieving important results. Have uncommonly high standards. Eager to take ownership. Exquisite ability to shift and focus and juggle many responsibilities at once. Welcome ambiguity and have a bias to action, even in its midst.

Fun: Must know it, have it, and be able to inspire. You find joy in hard work.

Impact: You’re hungry to be a part of something bigger than yourself. You don’t work just to make money. You work to create significant impact and have extreme dedication to professional and personal growth. You’re looking for an opportunity to build a great career and take on responsibility way above what you would receive in other organizations.
