You will fit in well at iBOOD if you enjoy the challenge of working in a fast-growing organization with motivated and smart colleagues. You are someone who thinks ahead, likes to find creative solutions, and does not follow a fixed pattern. You can handle pressure and find it rewarding to make the impossible possible. In short; flexible, inventive and a go-getter!
