He/she also values work-life balance for everyone. This person keeps our company values in mind, has a strong sense of integrity, and prioritizes doing the right thing.

Our job as a leadership team is to provide context, not solutions. The people working directly on a project are in the best position to make decisions, so we hire smart people and then trust them. We're here to support our teams and to make sure efforts are aligned across the company.
