What we value

Be outcome-oriented

Be outcome-oriented

We need to play to win. That means setting our sights on the outcome we want and going for it, working collaboratively to define the goal, and committing to driving all our efforts towards success.

Build with urgency

Build with urgency

The world will move forward with or without us. We build with urgency to make an impact. We seek pragmatic solutions to difficult problems. We are iterative, learning and reinventing as we go and as we move towards our mission.

Speak with candor and listen with respect

Speak with candor and listen with respect

We believe in openness and a culture rooted in feedback without hierarchy. We improve by listening to others, learning from them, and capturing the opportunity to improve. We improve by speaking with candor, offering our insights while valuing and supporting our colleagues.

But don’t take our word for it. Hear what our employees have to say about working here.
