    • Ability to understand target prospect/customer personas and tailor messages for that particular audience — from case studies to landing pages to event collateral, and beyond.
    • Can collaborate with design to shape, define, or adapt to the creative direction; provides great care for how copy works with the design.
    • Team player with outstanding communication skills and a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves work ethic.
