  • Solid experience enhancing and optimising existing processes to meet the business' operational cadence.
  • Confidence and drive to build effective relationships with key stakeholders and external partners at any business level.
  • A collaborative spirit and desire to work within a close-knit team, while also being trusted to deliver on specific projects autonomously.
  • Flexibility with work hours in order to make calls to potential international partners.
  • Knowledge and experience in the wagering industry would be desirable.
