Who we are looking for
We’re focused on culture first. We want someone with a soul. Someone who does the right thing. Someone without ego. We’re looking for someone we want to hang out with, laugh with and work with.
Social skills are a must.
We bet on raw talent over tenure. The baseline : candidates need to have a minimum of 2 years of relevant experience. That said, what we want most is someone that’s hungry.
That’s more important to us than years of experience.
Experience growing and managing employees at an early stage company would be helpful, but not required.
