About You


You’re a people-focused and task-oriented individual who thrives in a fast-paced work environment. You take pride in owning work but are comfortable working with a team. Nimble as they come, you can manage through ambiguity and make solid recommendations with the information at hand.

Well, this just might be the role for you.




In this role you will be responsible for providing training & support for Ambassadors and support staff in each market as well as for adoption/engagement across the region.
