Qualifications

SKILLS YOU MUST HAVE

- Confidence in the workplace. This is no role for a shrinking violet or anyone who is afraid of conflict and/or bringing down the hammer when necessary. You'll be assisting in overseeing a team of 10+ developers across the world, and it's your responsibility to keep them on track, in line, challenged, and happy. This is NO SMALL FEAT! 

- Management experience. See above.

- A good sense of humor, and the ability to hit the /giphy command on Slack at lightning speed.

- High standards + attention to detail. We put out incredible work for our clients and that's because we do not compromise on what we deliver. 

- Being able to hold people accountable. Be fair but firm; encourage your team to do their best and give them the tools they need to be successful.

- Be able to run fast. No, not physically--but rather, we need you to be able to sprint alongside us. Sometimes work days are like that! Things in an agency move along quickly and if you're easily overwhelmed, can't multitask, or need 5 hour-long breaks just to get through the day....this is not the job for you, my friend.

- Be able to work on PST or EST time.

- Be able to dedicate a minimum of 25 hours per week to this job.
