  • Intellectually curious - You have an insatiable desire to understand why things are the way they are, how things work, and to challenge the status quo; you search for information and answers in an evolving landscape
  • Detail oriented - you complete each task as flawlessly as possible before moving to the next task
  • Agile and organized - You thrive in fast-paced and dynamic environments; you can multitask and prioritize your responsibilities; you demonstrate a methodical approach to all your work
  • A self-starter - You are comfortable working autonomously and are obsessive about producing high quality work; you’re eager to take on new projects without knowing exactly what you will uncover
  • An excellent communicator - You can explain complex (often technical) information to a variety of audiences
  • A team player - You favor team victories over individual success

You have…

  • 1+ years of relevant work experience in an analytical capacity, including responsibility for:
