You spot trends before they’re mainstream and then you can’t help but get creative and dream up ways to take advantage of them.

You innovate and execute. You don’t just do what you’re directed to do. You bring ideas to the table...and then you do them. You are a strategic partner, eager and able to play a part in developing the company’s path forward.

You are a numbers geek, but one who easily integrates with us common folk.

You are confident, strategic, experimental, and data-driven. You know that every decision you make affects profitability — which is to say everyone’s job — so you really care about making the right choice. But you also know you have to be wrong sometimes to find out what’s right.

You do not value processes at the expense of results. You know only results matter and you will adapt practices accordingly.

You are creative, but in a strategic, analytical way.

Your answer whenever you’re unsure is, “Let’s test it.”

You can give a virtually endless list of references who will speak to your complete financial integrity.

You are highly familiar with accounting, cash management, and corporate finance.

You are highly familiar with sales, marketing, digital marketing, branded content, etc.

You have a work ethic that puts everyone else you know to shame.

You want to save the world from boredom.
