Criteria for a successful candidate:
- A clear, friendly, upbeat, fluent-English writing style.
- Shows initiative; a self-starter with a proactive, positive attitude.

- A curious mind that naturally troubleshoots problems with a knack for arriving at solutions and workarounds.
- Single-minded about calming chaos, setting up and following good processes to deliver consistently great work.

- Can you demonstrate strong skills in customer support and care, understanding how to work with people and getting them the help they need?
