What you will be doing

Our differentiated growth strategy is focused on high-velocity M&A, we acquire a new enterprise software company every week. Each week you will be assigned a new task, personally be expected to quickly learn what is needed to solve the problem, then dig into the details to find the essence of the problem and the root cause of any issues, and then finally resolve the problem yourself. While you will be exposed to team leadership, this job is mostly about doing things yourself vs. telling others what to do.

  • Results-Oriented - We have a fast-paced culture with sky-high expectations along with unlimited opportunity to learn and have an impact. You will typically have hours or days, not weeks or months, to get each problem solved and move on to the next.
