More about the specific role:

Strong time management and follow up skills
Independent/Self-Motivated - We’re looking for someone that completes their own role largely independently within defined policies and procedures but knows when to seek intervention from his/her manager.
Eagerness to learn - continually seeking to improve sales skills
Bonus qualifications: experience in veterinary / animal health or Financial services.
Below are a few questions we think about when evaluating if someone will be successful as a Scratchpayer:
- Are you an empathetic listener / creator? We develop our key initiatives based on the design thinking process, and value those who can put themselves in the shoes of others to create the right solutions through thoughtful research, questioning, or listening.
- Can you work independently and thoroughly, but know when to raise important questions to the team? Being able to work independently is crucial for success, but you will sometimes think of questions or points relevant to other teams; knowing when to raise these questions and points is a must.
- Are you a strong communicator? We value those who can concisely relay the most relevant information to the right team members and those who can easily switch between high-level and low-level communication.
- Are you willing to give and receive feedback in a constructive way? We continually challenge each other to improve through timely and constructive feedback, and we are looking for those who believe feedback is a gift.
