This is a key hire for the organization and we are looking for someone who will help create a cohesive and highly performing organization. Below are some characteristics we are looking for:

  • A love for the startup environment
  • Passionate about building secure, scalable infrastructure
  • You believe that information and data are essential to making better decisions.
  • You are comfortable using technology-enhanced sales and project management tools and have an understanding or appreciation for data-driven analysis and business metrics.
  • You are exceptionally curious to listen and learn from customers.
  • You are curious 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 at times you may cause eye rolling from how often you ask the question, “why not?” of your colleagues.
  • You are seeking a highly collaborative and team-oriented culture.
  • People enjoy working with you. You are kind, social, humble, and want the best for others.
  • You have an uncanny ability to influence people – without them knowing that you actually influenced them.

We offer a competitive salary, comprehensive benefits, financial opportunity to participate in the success of the company, a positive work environment, and an opportunity to make an impact. You will be provided with access to Salesforce.com, mobile technology, and the ability to leverage our in-house Texada software platform to enable better decision-making.
