  • A Multi-Tasker: You are able to work with high-level multi-tasking skills and prioritize in a fast-paced constantly changing environment. You also have the ability to balance the workload to accommodate the demands of the job and exceed customer expectations
  • Excellent communication skills: When communicating, you hit the point from the get-go and deliver your message in a succinct manner
  • Tech-savvy: You're comfortable with technology and learn new programs quickly
  • A fun, caring, and humble attitude: We all work hard, but it's important to have a good time, look out for each other, and pitch in wherever needed
What We Offer:
  • An open, entrepreneurial environment: New ideas are always welcome. We want to foster an environment of continuous improvement where everyone on the team contributes.
