  • Data-driven method for decision-making using KPIs and metrics

But more importantly...

  • We expect you to be highly motivated in order to bring us to the next level
  • We want you to take responsibility and challenge us - because we're not perfect
  • We want you to be fair and team-oriented, you should never use elbows or put yourself in the spotlight, it's our teams we want to make shine
