      • Self-Starter: We're a fast-paced team that likes to think outside the box, so dig in to never-been-done-before projects, and figure out who can best help you execute.
      • Data-Driven Problem Solver: Synthesize information, then use intuition and experience to design the right solution.
      • Relentless Attention to Detail: You thrive in the details, with an eye for trends and analytics and an ability to tie everything back to the bottom line.
      • Default to Action: Time is of the essence as work to solve the barriers for our business owners, so our team prioritizes quick decisions based on sound judgment. It's also how we learn quickly, gather the right information, and refine our solutions.
      • Creative Planning: Put every resource to its highest and best use, maximizing our runway and providing the company an opportunity to test, learn, and iterate in order to sustain market leadership.
      • Be Scrappy: We operate with an entrepreneurial mindset, starting with small budgets to prove our theories. Every team member contributes to profits and revenue, and is responsible for optimizing organizational resources, whether it's time, money, or energy. We love to do a lot with a little, but aren't afraid to invest when an idea shows traction.
      • Clear Communication: Finance is your expertise, but responsible fiscal management is the responsibility of the entire team, which means you'll need to be gifted at breaking down complex insights into clear actions for your teammates.
