You are a selling superstar that never waste any business opportunities! This comes hand in hand with the fact that you like to set high goals and are very solution-oriented. An awesome customer experience is very important for you and you have a passion for our products. You are an outgoing team player with a “lead by example”-mentality and a passion for mentoring others. You have a great sense for details and are analytical and structured. Lastly, you share the cultural philosophy of Happy Socks!
