Our Values

  1. Don't forget why we started - serving the community first
  2. Fail fast when experimenting and then ship excellence at scale.
  3. We encourage data-driven debates, and when the decision is made we row together as a team.
  4. Surround ourselves with people that will bring us up
  5. We celebrate our diversity through love, respect and open-mindedness
  6. Be humble, triangulate by asking experts and look for ways to improve.
  7. Growth means change. Success is when people shine in the right role at the right time.
  8. Scalable transparency - we trust each other with all parts of the company

Our Virtues

  1. It's a marathon, not a sprint - take care of yourself and your fellow runners
  2. Act with integrity - never do something you wouldn't be proud to tell your mum about
  3. We champion the journey, not just the destination. Create efficient systems and crush tech debt along the way.
  4. See something, say something. Speak up when there’s a problem and listen with empathy when someone else does.
  5. The problem you're avoiding is probably the most important one. Solve it today
  6. We achieve our mission when our customers succeed. Take on their pains like they are our own, and build great solutions so they can scale.
  7. Perfection is the enemy of progress. Know when the marginal returns on your effort have diminished.
  8. Respect each other's time. No agenda = meeting cancelled
  9. We can do anything but we can't do everything
