About you

Things about you:

  • You are a self starter and eager to learn new things.
  • Take pride in your work, even if no one else sees it.
  • Great work ethic.
  • Passion for the best ideas, even if they aren’t yours
  • Willingness to disagree and voice an alternative opinion if you believe it is correct, even if the person you disagree with is more experienced than you
  • Whatever-it-takes attitude, even if that means that you’ll have to get out of your comfort zone
