  • Comfortability working with distributed teams across multiple time zones.
  • The ability to act as a subject matter liaison and lead conversations with sales teams, talent matchers, product managers, product designers, engineering teams, and business stakeholders.
  • A mastery in human-centered design and fluency in contemporary design tools. You have a burning desire to conduct user research with design candidates and talent network members to ensure that our assessment process is centered around the user.
