- Must be able to speak spanish, or at least be eager and able to learn as the season progresses.
- Positive, proactive team player with good problem solving skills
- Must be able to do a little heavy lifting, however most of the gear is easily managed

Preferred Qualities
- Mechanically inclined, with good working knowledge of vehicle care and repair

haha.. if my contract was up here I'd be all over this, even if it's not remotely close to my field. Looks like a total blast!

I'm jealous, dan!
