We’re looking for people who want to build something – people who solve problems, focus on the common goal, and blindly love what they do.

Shared responsibility is big for any growing company. This means autonomy and interesting work but requires task-switching and accountability. Our team members are quick, innovative, and help each other surpass their clients’ expectations.

The most important quality we’re looking for is character. We can (and sometimes do) train people in every aspect of their job, but we can never teach principle.
