* Must maintain a high level of attention to detail and critical thinking skills, with minimal errors

* Ability to manage multiple priorities and meet deadlines

* Work independently or engage others as needed to problem solve

* Adapt effectively to a changing and fast-paced team environment

* Strong interpersonal and communication skills, both verbally and in writing
