Culture Fit

  • Industrious & Hard Working: You’re willing to both make decisions and collaborate in the pursuit of getting things done. You don’t stop until the problem is put to bed, especially if the problem is challenging and forces you to grow.
  • Obsessive about Details: You make sure that nothing slips. When something lands on your plate, everyone knows that you’ll get it done – because you always do.
  • Optimistic & Creative: This is less about having all of the answers and more about how you approach problems that come up. You bring creative juice to your work and don’t settle for expected solutions or excuses.
