The ideal team member will have …

An analytical mind. Do you love drawing connections between seemingly disparate pieces of information? Come join us!

An eye for design. You don’t have to be a pro, but if you know how to put together a clean design, you’re the one we’re looking for. Bonus: If you have a background in visual displays of data, show us what you can do!

A love for (or at least a strong desire to learn!) public speaking. If you’re able to put yourself out there and speak knowledgeably and professionally to groups large and small, you’ll fit right in.

A head for strategy. You need to think at least six steps ahead in this job! Can you look at the big picture? Can you see how the pieces fit together? Can you anticipate potential roadblocks?

A detailed nature and an aptitude for organizing. Can you keep track of multiple workstreams and deliverables at once? Can you find that one file we made for that meeting with that one group last year … or was it two years ago?

A love of communication. If you’re all about getting the right message to the right people in the right way at the right time, you’re one of us. 

The candidate(s) offered this position will be required to submit to a background investigation, which includes a drug screen.
