  • Curiosity, love of learning, and an innate push for continuous improvement
  • Strong organizational and project management skills
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, and sharp instincts for how to communicate the right information to the right audience in the right way at the right time
  • Detail orientation
  • Persistence and follow-through

  • You want a front-row seat to the executive operations of an early stage growth startup
  • You love range and variety in your work: everything from high-level strategic planning to sheer execution across many functional areas
  • You’re looking for opportunities to learn, grow, and stretch yourself
  • You love a fast-paced environment and working with colleagues who are smart and care a lot
  • You want your skills, time, and energy to go towards making the world (or at least the Internet) a better place
