About You
You can work independently but prefer to be a part of a team, you think in terms of process and goals, and you bring order to chaos. If that sounds like you, and you can meet the list of qualifications and competencies below, we want to hear from you:

  • Relevant degree/certificate AND a minimum of 5 years of related professional experience.
  • Strong problem-solving skills, combined with well-developed critical thinking.

We work hard and we like to get stuff done, but we have fun while we work so a positive attitude is a strong requirement.
