Cover Letter
[A] is fully distributed across seven time zones, and requires all [A]gents to be available for meetings and collaboration between 8:30 AM and 5:30 PM Central time. Does this work for you?*
Reading the description, why do you think you may be a good fit for this role?*

However, there's a lot of ways in which we're the same. We're all learners and teachers, all committed to growth for ourselves, each other and [A] as a whole.

The work you will be doing on the test project will produce important and valuable deliverables and contains areas that may be involved in your [A] position.

If you progress through our process, would you be willing to participate in a traction project?*
