Our values


No idea is a bad idea. All ideas should be open to expression. Embrace breaks, exercise, travel, brainstorming, and non-linear thinking to come up with new ideas.

Triple check

Ruthless detail is a phase we use a lot. Because we move fast it can be easy to break stuff. That’s why we triple check the work we do, while still being aware of the cost/benefit to delivering quickly.

Transparency, open mindedness

Admit when you are wrong. Seek new information from others and from resources until you know you are making the best decision.


Looks for ways to automate common processes.

Critical feedback

Embrace hearing that you didn’t do something correctly, well, or thorough. Be brave telling your boss when he or she doesn’t do something correctly, well, or thorough. Expect people to listen respectfully to your and others feedback.

Wing it

Do you immediately ask for help or do you try to learn to do something on your own first? Do you admit you don’t know all the answers and are willing to find them through grit and determination? Do you enjoy learning?
