  • Experience in an environment where you had to exhibit problem-solving skills daily, viewing each new problem as an opportunity for success
  • Self-starter, you approach challenges creatively and methodically, seeing them through to final resolution
  • Have the ability to communicate with varying levels of stakeholders, within your team and throughout the company
  • Ability to drive high velocity, high impact development cycles, balancing out short-term needs and long-term vision
