Always thirsty for knowledge, always curious, and always looking for new problems to solve, a Galaxy investor is an optimistic scientist obsessed with finding the truth. A Galaxy investor is a free and responsible person. They always look to do more to help the organization improve while also considering key priorities and trade-offs. When things go well, they celebrate as a team. When things go wrong, they own it, learn about what went wrong, deal with the consequences, and improve. A Galaxy investor doesn’t have excuses, they only have reasons to be better. A Galaxy investor is confident, yet humble; action-biased, yet rigorous. They trust and complete the team, knowing that when the team wins, everyone wins.What You’ll Do
