What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team juggles many different deadlines, so being able to stay organized is key! It’s also helpful to be very detail oriented and comfortable in a fast paced environment, but most importantly, you need to have a solid sense of humor and to be able to laugh at yourself (and us).
