Behind the scenes


Lead With Data

We use facts, not fiction, to build narratives and make decisions. We believe strong hypotheses are the start, not the end. We respect each other’s time and show up with the data and an explanation for what it means.

Mistakes + Reflection = Progress

We try without fear and learn without ego. We make good mistakes. We seek, accept, and apply feedback.

Invent & Wander

We constantly invent, measure, and iterate. We do things that don’t scale. We reject the phrase “That is how it’s always been done” and don’t let perfect get in the way of better.

Be Leverage, Build Leverage

We build bridges and recognize we can all teach, coach, and mentor each other. We strive to make ourselves redundant and avoid single points of failure.

Inputs > Outcomes

We think in terms of value chains and focus on the process. We prioritize and solve our Partners’ and Customers’ problems over our own convenience.

Execution Is Binary

We are relentless in our drive to deliver on our commitments. We ruthlessly prioritize, communicate often, and are willing to let fires burn in pursuit of what really matters.

Own It, Finish It

We touch the bottom of the ocean and consider no job too small. We self-serve, help ourselves, take the problem as far as we can, and when needed ask others for help. We own our mistakes.

Honesty Over Harmony

We share the truth even when it is painful. We have the meeting in the meeting. We embrace mutual feedback and hold each other accountable, as individuals and as teams. We ask ourselves: “Did I ask them? Did I tell them?”.
