The subject matter of the positions being filled meant that the best profiles for these roles were also courted by multi-national tech giants. The eventual team build of course contained those individuals with the necessary skills, the stand-out characteristic however, was the drive behind the skills to work for a company with an actionable plan to save, elongate and improve the quality of lives across the planet.
