We pride ourselves on being flexible, but there are somethings we feel very strongly about:
Being an excellent communicator, because you take care in articulating your own thought process, as well as critique the work of others.
Understanding the whole business. Great systems aren’t built in a vacuum – they require hard work from extremely smart people across many disciplines and an understanding of how it all fits together.
Great teams are better than the all-star players. No matter how great someone’s ideas, they’ll be improved upon through collaboration.
