QUALITIES WE'RE LOOKING FOR

You love learning and self-teaching, but you’re not afraid to ask for help.

When faced with something you don’t understand— you’ll Google it and read a reputable article or watch a video on YouTube before you ask someone how to do a thing, but you also can identify and communicate when you need assistance or additional context to be successful.

You’re critical of your own work and always getting better.

You’re the kind of person who can always see how their own work can be improved — you don’t wait for someone else to tell you when something is off or could be better. You take good critical feedback seriously and you remember to apply it next time also without being asked.

You can edit someone else’s work and polish it up.

You’re not afraid to edit someone else's work or provide clear, courteous, honest feedback to help the team arrive at a better result.

You're open-minded.

You're comfortable working on a variety of brands with different belief systems.

You sweat the small stuff.

You're always watching for typos, and keeping an eye out for the details that others miss. You get that the last 10% of a project is what can make all the difference.

You’re self-organizing.

You manage your own time and work effectively and efficiently. You’ve got a pulse on when you’re  approaching a project or task’s budget cap and you’re comfortable working against a deadline.

You can express your opinion confidently and courteously.

You’re not scared to speak up when you disagree, or when you think something needs improvement, and you do it with confidence and respect for others.

You're a self-starter.

You understand when you already have permission. You see something broken, and you fix it. You see how to improve something, and you make it happen.

You're a team player. (You don’t have an ego)

You don’t care who has the idea, as long as it’s good. You care more about the end result than personal recognition. You’re excited to contribute as part of a team to produce a better final result together than you could create on your own.
