Personal Qualities

A great attitude, a willingness to learn,
Perhaps a bit geeky. Love numbers.
But also willing to be social with us on Fridays. I wouldn’t say we are the coolest hipsters on the planet, but we do like to actually talk to each other, believe it or not.
For example every Monday we have breakfast together to plan the week ahead.

If you are a good person who respects others and can have a bit of banter as well, then you will be fine.
