Do you love hard, complex, truly impactful problems? Do you thrive in a dynamic, ever-changing work environment?  Do you care about defining and focusing on the most important questions over going through the motions?  Do you revel in learning new things, conceptually and technically?  Do you like shifting from the big picture into the detail?  Do you find yourself oscillating between “how it works” and “why it exists”?

If so, we’d love to chat.
