Chris Hill from PerkSpot just filled me on a new role he is looking to fill so I wanted to make sure to share it with all of you. It is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a fast moving start-up so for all the folks out there looking to make the leap this is one to consider. Rather than butcher the job description I will simply post what Chris sent my way. Enjoy!
