  • The nature of what we do in our organization commands that we bring your aptitude for technology and your fresh ideas into play. This is a tough business environment and this is our best way to manage it.
  • We value our different perspectives and we’re comfortable with challenging each other – it’s a part of how we operate.
  • Let’s have meaningful coaching conversations where you share your goals, desires and observations, and receive feedback to help you grow. I want to get a clear sense of where you want to go and what you want to accomplish.
  • I’ll take somebody who’s overly ambitious over someone who’s not, any day. We need energy and speed and fresh legs. We need you.
