  • A nuanced comprehension of the Aplós brand, voice, and purpose and an ability to bring those nuances to life in storytelling, cultural relevance, and talent partnerships.
  • Strong project management and organization skills
  • Extremely high attention to detail
  • Alignment with our cultural values:
  • Stop selling, start serving. With everything you do, ask yourself how we can serve the customer, partner or colleague—how can we be proactive, and provide value to them, not just take from them.
  • Be Accountable. We have the luxury of building a company from our own spaces and with the privilege of flexibility and time saved, we must also be unwavering in our dedication to go above and beyond. To be available. To show up on time for our team. To meet deadlines. And to communicate effectively.
  • Be Curious. We value diversity of perspective and dissenting opinions. Society tends to reward ego and “knowing” over vulnerability and curiosity. Get outside your comfort zone and ask for help when you need it. “Knowing is the enemy of growth.”
  • Work from inspiration. Don’t make decisions based on fear. Don’t be afraid to fail. Stay inspired by remembering the “why” behind what we’re building.
  • Focus on what’s important. We are not built to multitask—focus 80% of your time on the big things that will have a long-term impact. Speak up if you think we’re focusing on the wrong things.
  • Celebrate the wins. Always begin with gratitude, and celebrate the wins of your colleagues, our customers, and partners.
  • Comfortable working autonomously and collaboratively
  • Ability to embrace curiosity and creativity, and can champion ideas with confidence
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced start-up environment by being resourceful and having a high comfort level for change
  • Eager to take on new challenges, introduce and implement new approaches and ideas, grow, test, and learn
