(01) Do Big Things
We dare to create big ideas, make big leaps, and take big risks.

You are a talented word wizard who thinks like a strategist. You're able to carry out bold ideas and creative writing in a timely manner. You are a dot connector. Clever headlines, copy, and creative storytelling are your secret weapons. Successful candidates are versatile and can stir emotion for any category, whether it be chocolate, tech, food, finance, or dog beds. You love taking boring categories and flipping them on their heads. And, you're probably pretty rare.
