Priority #1 is that you want to join our company on a yacht in the Mediterranean, skiing in Aspen, safari in Tanzania, Oktoberfest in Munich, Carnival in Rio, scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef, and other amazing vacations. Priority #2 is that you are fun, know how to get things done, and love the startup atmosphere.
