Who You Are

Does the description below align with your professional superpowers and past accomplishments? If so, we encourage you to apply!

You are a first-class communicator. You know how to deliver information clearly and efficiently in a variety of formats. In your interactions with clients, you take time to deeply understand their vision and expectations, align on a vision for success, and determine how you’ll communicate as you make progress toward your goals. You keep others informed at the right level on an ongoing basis as you manage projects.

You have a passion for people and process. You build strong systems to keep your work moving forward efficiently while never losing sight of the people impacted by the processes you’re managing.
