What We Value:

  • Direct: We deal with a lot of moving pieces and changing technology. There are multiple hurdles here around communicating clearly. Talking about technology can get complicated; talking about people’s ideas can get touchy. Our voice should be as direct and unambiguous as possible so that there is no room for misinterpretation. We should also back up our opinions and statements with facts so that everyone can see and understand the reasoning. We want the people we work with to understand what we’re saying and/, but we also don’t wanna be a jerk.

  • Empowering: We’re entrepreneurs at heart; we love thinking about the next big thing. Our voice should inspire others to dream, as well. We have many of the tools you’ll need to get started, but we can also build anything. Let’s dream together.

  • Open: We can’t be adaptable if we’re absolutist or concrete in our thinking. We’re open to change, and we’re open to the idea that change may come from unexpected places. Our voice should convey that we’re confident in our ability to learn and grow and will readily take on a challenge when it brings value to our team or the things we build.

  • Fact & Research Based Opinions: Although we have strong opinions, they’re evidence and research-based. Our voice should convey that suggestions and feedback come from a place of experience, and we’re willing to talk about those findings that support our stance. Our voice should also convey that we're keen to update our opinions based on new discoveries. User research and testing, and design thinking, are integral parts of our build process.
