You have that rare ability to bridge two worlds - the human and the technical. You can draw out complex ideas from stakeholders and distill them into bite-size, achievable goals. You like improving efficiency, helping execute projects, and being the glue for all the details scattered about. You like being given space to run in a global open source company with a start-up culture, and you enjoy being a jack-of-all trades. And it feels pretty satisfying when you can take the disjointed lego pieces of a project and help deliver creations that are scalable, intuitive, and sharp. Sound like you? Apply now and lets chat.
