Were a best of “both worlds” kind of company. Were big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. Were curious, fun, a little intense, and passionate about helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?
