  • Develop new, relevant technology skills when required, and stay up to date on industry trends 
  • Possess a positive "whatever it takes mentality," and an ability to quickly and easily adapt to changing mandates and priorities
  • Thrive in a feedback-driven culture and have a sense of humor

We deal with the difficult (but fascinating!) tradeoffs of these decisions every day.
