We can teach you what you need to know about our products and customers, we really want exciting people with lots of potential who will bring their "all". Below are some qualifications and characteristics we are looking for:
You are someone with an insatiable curiosity to learn. When something has always been done a certain way, you wonder why nobody has begun to do it differently
You are someone who refuses to believe “no, we can’t do that” is an acceptable answer to a question, and inspire eye rolling from how much you ask the question “why not” of your colleagues
People really like working with you. You are kind, social, humble, and want the best for others.
Your past employment experiences have frustrated you about not being able to see the results of your work. You dream of directly contributing to the success of a great organization
You think technology can help change the world – you read Techcrunch and/or VentureBeat, and have ambitions to perhaps start your own company some day
You have an uncanny ability to influence people – without them knowing that you actually influenced them.
You think automation is important – and seek out processes, systems and tools that enable better decision making with minimal re-work
You usually don’t immediately know the answer to everything – but you are adept at using tools and seeking opinions to get the right answer
