  • Work cross-functionally and cross-team to understand needs, challenges and workflows.

  • You facilitate critical conversations with ease; you have no trouble working with and juggling the (at times) competing priorities of multiple teams operating in different countries.
  • You approach problems with multiple solutions in mind, and quickly pivot when needed to better account for newly-discovered data and insight.
  • You build and cultivate healthy relationships with partners and keep teammates informed and engaged. You customize your communication style based on your audience and easily switch between verbal and written communication as needed.
