Build things that make people happy or solve a problem
- Build things people want or need
- Be something to someone, not everything to no one
Build up…in fact, build way up, but you must tear down to the most critical elements. Deliver a clear and compelling use case and refine it into the perfection of simplicity.
- Details matter
We’ve been the title of choice in multiple categories because we care about the details that matter to our users.
We are grateful for the opportunity to solve interesting problems with the most talented and driven people around
- ‘A’ talent
We only court talent that takes great pleasure in making users happy.
Create so much value for others, you never need to think about the return.
- Help others
We love giving to programs that make a difference in the lives of people that can’t yet help themselves
It’s Always Solvable
We programmed our Slack bot to give people that use the word “can’t” a hard time
- Another door always opens
Our belief is that trends, behaviors, tools, etc. are constantly shifting, creating new opportunities in unexpected spaces
- Never give up; persistence pays
Ideas are cheap, execution is hard… be willing to do the hard work, don’t jump to a new idea as soon as you see a wall
- Ship fast; be iterative and data-driven
Intuition is important and we listen to it during the process, but we favor a data-driven and iterative process, meaning ship fast/early and use actual user feedback to decide on next moves
If these core values match your core values… want to join us?
