Company Values
Version 2.0 Updated May 2018
We believe...
● Values should be both reflective of the culture and aspirational.
● Values will always mean something different based on individual
experiences, and when or how teammates are on-boarded -- and that’s okay!
● Some values felt foundational; others felt like they were not as relevant
today as when the value was originally written.
● Values should “draw a line in the sand” to make us stand apart and make
a statement.
Default to Transparency
● As individuals, we view transparency as a lifestyle of authenticity and honesty.
● As a team, we view transparency as an effective way to work remotely and
establish a culture of trust.
● As a company, we view transparency as a tool to help others.
● We strive to make all communication clear and avoid making assumptions.
● We share early in the decision process to avoid “big revelations.”
Default to Transparency
Cultivate Positivity
● We strive to approach things in a positive way while realizing all emotions are
valid.
● We avoid non-constructive criticism of team members or customers.
● We assume the best of others because we may lack full context.
● We believe that constructive, honest feedback is an opportunity for growth.
● We push through any artificial harmony to work towards a better
environment, product or concept.
Cultivate Positivity
Show Gratitude
● We regularly stop and demonstrate gratitude for our circumstances.
● We operate as no-ego doers, approaching customer conversations with the
knowledge that it’s a privilege to serve them.
● We practice humility and do not attach our personal selves to ideas.
● We are grateful for the work teammates do to push the company forward.
● We display gratitude for the platforms, tools and open source code and
communities that make our company possible and view it as our duty to give
back.
Show Gratitude
Practice Reflection
● We believe the act of introspection is where true learning and life-changing
adjustments originate.
● We approach discussions intentionally and think through all angles.
● We listen first and then listen more: seeking first to understand, then to be
understood.
● We step back from the day-to-day and reflect on overall themes that will
make an impact.
● We take the approach that everything is a hypothesis and we could be
wrong.
Practice Reflection
Improve Consistently
● We have a higher expectation of ourselves and of our product than others
have of us.
● We aim to be fully engaged in our work and activities, and fully disconnected
when we’re not working.
● We choose to be where we are the happiest and most productive.
● We desire to be better tomorrow than today, knowing that improvement can
be found in small changes.
● We strive to exemplify a growth mindset and believe that any skill or talent
can be learned through deliberate practice.
Improve Consistently
Act Beyond Yourself
● We consider the bigger picture, knowing our work goes beyond ourselves.
● We are not afraid of the less-traveled path if it holds true to our values and
betters the world.
● We seek balance by taking into account multiple perspectives and listening
deeply.
● We advocate for diverse backgrounds and perspectives to make our team
and products stronger.
● We work to create an inclusive environment to build a better company and
set a positive example for the world.
Act Beyond Yourself
