The most interesting thing I've learned on the job is
that passion trumps most other things. Finding people passionate about a problem you're trying to solve is hard, but once you find them, together you can achieve amazing things.
The thing I love most about my work is
working with smart, talented people who care about making the world a better place.
The thing I'm most proud of from my time here is
helping to recruit and grow so many great people that have gone on to do amazing things.
