  • Comfortable proactively managing your priorities, connecting these to business impact and displaying a high level of ownership and accountability towards your goals
  • Excellent written and verbal English communication

In Return

We offer a competitive salary, stock options, a great working environment and the opportunity to grow our product and business together.
