You’ve managed teams of researchers across multiple time zones and FTE/freelance and have exceptional experience at a leading research firm or fast-paced media with a focus on content.
You have to be nimble enough to take on new projects, prioritize ‘minimum effort maximum results’ tasks, and solve problems in real-time with your own judgment. You’re a servant leader and work well under pressure, with limited instruction, while managing up. You love to do the hard work.
