      • Proficiency in Microsoft Office, Google Suite and collaboration tools

      • Outstanding customer service mentality gained through previous work experience in a customer service role

      • As we have several projects focused on the hispanic market we welcome candidates who are bilingual and have a deep understanding of bicultural audiences
