What We Believe About

Work:

  • About more than just a paycheck.
  • Should be intellectually engaging.
  • Should provide the opportunity to learn and grow.
  • Short-termism in tech is bad. It’s worth building lasting relationships.
  • Punching a clock or counting hours is bad. Results > Hours.
  • It’s a big part of our lives, but it’s not all there is.

Creativity In Work:

  • Work should be fun!
  • Knowledge work: Coding is the easy part. Figuring out the ideas is hard work.
  • Our mental model is really what we’re building when coding. Communicating is an expression of your mental model. First think clearly, then help someone else share your thoughts.

People:

  • A person ≠ their opinions. We value people even when we disagree with their opinions.
  • Non-traditional backgrounds are highly prized. E.g. Philosophy majors wanted!
  • We complement each other. Everyone is good at something and bad at something.
  • We are upfront about what we don’t know, but we are also not afraid to learn anything that we don’t know.
  • Humility and intellectual security are table stakes.

Hiring:

  • Plan to teach us something about the cool work you’ve done in the past.
  • Let us teach you something about the cool work we’re doing now.
