How would people describe us?
…just a little bit.
statements are corny and
But, it is important to define who we are, what we aspire to
be, and what it takes to join this awesome and unique team.
• Think critically and solve problems.
• Be innovative and pragmatic – it’s a delicate balance.
• Make promises and deliver to our customers and your peers.
• Be interesting to ourselves, customers, and users.
• Be passionate about your life and your work - the lines are blurred.
• Be eager to challenge yourself and learn new things.
• Think about the Key Ring consumer first.
• Make decisions based on data. When data isn’t available trust your gut.
We don’t hire experts.
We hire smart, scrappy people that have an aptitude and willingness to learn.
Why we don’t have a vacation
Vacations are interesting, and we think interesting is a good fit.
Take what you want when you want (within reason).

sound judgement; good sense
Exercise, we’ll pay for it!
Let’s face it, we’re a bunch desk jockeys.
Working out stimulates your brain and body and leads to more
creative thinking and more productive output at work.
Also, healthy people get sick less thus take less sick time.
It’s a win:win.
Why we’re anti cubes and
Open space work environments are conducive to collaboration.
Dev’s, don’t worry you’ll have plenty of focused time to knock out
Why does the CEO have an office?
Sometimes it’s necessary to have discrete conversations.
With that said, the door is always open. Come on in!
What’s the dress code?
Simply put, we don’t have one.
Use your best judgment based on the situation you’ll be in.
Seeing a client? Be professional.
Staying in the office? Dress for productivity.
For the CEO that means t-shirt, hat, jeans, and sneakers.
Why do we avoid the word
This business wasn’t built by one person with a good
idea, it was built by a group of passionate individuals
coming together to solve real problems. Our ability to
work together as a team sets us apart.
Team or teammate = good.
How can we get to know our
Glad you asked. Going forward every new and existing
employee must put together a 10 page presentation consisting
mostly of pictures about the things you’re passionate about
both professionally and in life in general. Make it fun!
Also, once a quarter we’ll do a team outing on a Friday
afternoon. This may or may not involve adult beverages but
will always include fun!
How do we know what to focus
Once a month we’ll have an all-hands meeting to discuss the latest
product developments, sales, and what’s on the horizon.
This is your chance to ask questions, challenge assumptions, and
help everyone think through the appropriate strategy.
