Vue d'ensemble

When you attend events do you find yourself thinking about how you would have done it differently? Can you obsess on the details of the experience while keeping the big picture in mind? Are you a self-starter who can thrive during demanding projects? Are you the type of person who can work quickly to solve challenges? Do you thrive working collaboratively amongst a team(s)? If you like video games, fantasy, sci-fi, graphic novels, technology, or other geeky things, even better. You may be our ideal candidate!
