Attention to detail: Please address your email to “the lucky person opening this email” for your application to be considered.

Honey badger attitude: You make ambitious goals. Then execute…on time, on budget.
You’re like us: You smile a lot, think work is fun and don’t take yourself too seriously. You measure yourself against the best and believe feedback is the breakfast of champions.
