We’d like to know what you think qualifies you for this role. We don’t necessarily need a piece of paper – what we really value is common sense – and so far, we haven’t seen a course for that!

Of course, if you have accolades you want to share then we’d love to hear all about them.

In the US, our team is fully remote, which means we’re looking for the best people we can find, regardless of location.
