          Hey Clinton,

               "Building from scratch, thrive on turning ambiguity into productivity, and have aptitude for marketing technologies," - Definitely the right mindset that you want your future Sr. Marketing Infrastructure & Automation Engineer to have. This sounds like a role that you want a true rockstar in, that can come in and start laying down a great foundation to build up with. I noticed that this would be in Bellevue? What we've seen is that there is a lot of talent that would be great fits that happen to not be near the same area as the office. Are you open to a remote worker?
