This role requires strong communication, creativity, and time management skills.
Success in the role is not just about creating outstanding work individually; it’s about collaborating effectively with others to produce a superior product that achieves specific aesthetic and data-driven goals. You’ll be part of a close team that sees strong communication, exploration, and collaboration as fundamental to its success.
