Characteristics of Success
  • Focus We are ruthless prioritizers with maniacal focus. We love getting lost in the clouds of an idea but know that attention to detail and a finely crafted to-do list are key ingredients to delivering success.
  • Creativity We are creators - makers - developers of "new." We look for the orthogonal approach instead of the obvious. We are excited to solve the problem and always up for a challenge.
  • Storytelling We are narrators. Principally looking to answer "why" - why we made this, why you want this, why we do what we do. We strike emotional resonance and impart a lasting impression.
  • Partnership We are partners. We look to engage early and often in collaborative creation with partners in all dimensions: editorial, sales, product, operations, even with clients themselves when called for.
  • Strategy We come to every conversation with an entrepreneurial spirit and wearing a general manager hat. We wonder how everything we do will impact every corner of the business. We anticipate and create opportunities before they are needed.

  • Bias toward action and a love of problem solving
  • High degree of detail orientation and organizational instincts
  • Proficiency with PowerPoint/Keynote, Word, Excel
  • Communication that is clear and concise
  • Ability to juggle multiple competing priorities
