What We Believe

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.

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.
