  • Ability to work in a fast paced, evolving, growing and dynamic environment.
  • Demonstrate personal initiative and strong ownership of deliverables.
  • Ability to solve difficult and unstructured problems strategically and think creatively
  • Self-motivated, results oriented, enthusiastic, and a creative thinker.
