the values we live and work by

😇 No BS, No Ego

We are radically candid with each other in every interaction. This means a lack of politics, a lack of showboating, a lack of BS. This also means brevity, clarity of thought, and clarity of communication.

We aim to give and take feedback without ego, with the knowledge that we all are operating with good intent.

🐢 1% better every day

Continuous improvement is what motivates us. We design our product, our organization and our careers to be continually improving.

Mistakes are only bad if they are repeated. Experiments are only wasted if they are not learned from.

🛠 Own the journey

We are all owners, and we demand that of each other.

The journey we own is threefold: our customers’ journey, our tribe's journey and our personal journey.

We refer to ourselves as a tribe for a number of reasons, most importantly Dunbar's number.
