The idea that you become the average of the five people you spend the most time with suggests that your colleagues, likely part of your daily life, significantly influence you.

If these colleagues embody qualities like high achievement, growth orientation, and an entrepreneurial spirit, you're in an ideal environment to thrive. Icetubs is extending an invitation to individuals with such traits to join us as the Chief Operating Officer for our new office in Amsterdam.
