General Attributes that we look for in our team members:
You take your work seriously, but not yourselves. You have a sense of humour, are approachable, open minded and inclusive. You show respect and interest in each other and greet people with a smile.

You are incredibly passionate about the company and care intensely about our success. You inspire others. You care about the little details, and the impact that even the smallest action can have. You always go the extra mile and never say “that is someone else's problem”. You pick up the trash on the floor.

You aren’t afraid of hearing truths. You are quick to admit mistakes. You help to create a culture of giving and receiving feedback, whilst checking their own ego at the door.

You understand that communication is a two way street. You actively listen to better understand before articulating their own thoughts clearly and concisely.

Big thinking
You are inherently curious. You are always thinking about how your actions can have a bigger impact. You are keen to challenge accepted conventions and assumptions to drive growth.

Willing to learn
You are proactive and eager to learn. You seek to understand things about our users and market. You view problems and challenges as opportunities and always learn from mistakes. You are self-reflective, open minded and always willing to listen to another point of view.

Team players
You say “we” not “I”. You are collaborative, freely sharing knowledge and helping to coach other team mates. You are selfless, and quick to recognise and praise the contributions of others. You understand that successes and failures are shared with the team. You help each other to be great.

Cool headed
You are calm in a crisis. In times of trouble you bring focus and use logical and analytical thinking to solve problems without letting yourselves be overwhelmed by negative emotion.

You are self starters. You are aware of your responsibilities and skills and know when to ask for help or direction. You question actions that are inconsistent with our mission and values.

You accomplish amazing amounts of important work. You have an ability to get things done. You avoid analysis-paralysis. You deliver on your promises, and are able to effectively handle your own deadlines. You can always be relied upon. You fix problems quickly.

You are right a lot. You demonstrate excellent judgement, are great at analysing issues, and use solid reasoning to solve problems.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
