7 things we look for in CHAI people

Short term pessimist, long term optimist
We welcome those who work with a sense of urgencyโ€”very well understanding the gravity of each obstacleโ€”while never losing sight of the firm belief that we will ultimately succeed in the long run.
Not afraid to speak their mind, not afraid to hear out othersโ€™
We welcome those who arenโ€™t afraid to speak their mind, and those who can accept and learn from honest feedback.
No room for brilliant jerks
Even if youโ€™re a perfect fit otherwise, if there is never a doubt in your mind that you are right and that others are wrong, youโ€™re probably going to be happier elsewhere. There is no room for brilliant jerks at CHAI.
Inclined to execute
Deep and deliberate thinking paired with effective communications are important. However, thinking and talking about a problem alone canโ€™t change the world around us. At CHAI, we welcome those that are inclined to execute.
Hunger for solving problems
Those who wish to avoid or gloss over difficult problems arenโ€™t the right fit for CHAI. We welcome those who thrive in the process of solving complex problems, and those who relish the thrill when the problem is solved.
