This is a paid position – we don’t expect freebies, we expect performance. You will be treated like any other team-member and that’s a better experience for you in the long-run, anyway.
We prefer a “NO BS” approach to our work. We don’t get it right 100% but then we are honest enough to admit it. If you are a “NO BS” kind of person then talk with us.
