-Possess a mix of both technical skills and business knowledge

-Intuitive understanding of the interface between technology and business

-Strong technical contributor, quantitative thinker, and intellectually fearless

-Able to operate across multiple business contexts simultaneously

-Demonstrated ability to learn while doing and at home operating under conditions of uncertainty with minimal supervision

-Experienced and talented communicator

Education Requirements:
