Values

Co(llective) GRIT

Grit is passion and sustained persistence applied towards a long-term goal (or purpose). We collectively win or fail as a team.

Customer Obsession

Customers are our north star for everything we do. While we pay attention to competitors, we obsess over customers. We work hard everyday to earn and keep customer trust.

Growth Mindset

Success never comes easily. Every challenge we encounter is an opportunity to learn and grow. We succeed by working smart and hard, having resilience, and with our ability to adapt, innovate, and inspire.

Results-driven

Speed matters in business, and we must have a bias for action. We value calculated risk taking. We are hands-on and high-quality builders. We get things done and commit to excellence and ownership of outcomes. We understand that building a startup is a marathon and not a sprint. Let us have the necessary conversations so you can contribute sustainably.

Integrity

Integrity is the foundation for our trust in each other and our long-term successful relationships with customers and partners. It is the bedrock on which everything else is built.

Teamwork, embracing Diversity

We produce the best outcomes when we work together, and everyone can bring their authentic self to work. We assume good intentions and believe in respect, trust, empathy, and candor as the foundation of teamwork. We are committed to increasing and embracing diversity in all its numerous forms.
