We aim for the stars; we get there one step at a time. We want to tackle and solve hard problems, with a sense of urgency and bias toward action. We promote radical change through incremental steps. We are balanced: Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy, betting the house is for cowboys. We care for each other. We are good colleagues. We are focused on accessibility, not hierarchy. We jump in to help one another whenever we can. We double down on solidarity when we are under pressure. We are here to help our customers thrive. We live and breathe because we make software run, and nothing matters as much as keeping our customers’ applications running. But our goal is bigger. We measure our success on how we improve our customer’s lives, and their digital businesses. We never sacrifice quality. We appreciate and value quality in everything we do: code, design and communication. Our product is written with good, sustainable, explicit code and accessible, user-centric design. We automate everything that we can automate, and always design for resilience and high-availability. We know how to refactor, let go, and change when we have to. We stay aware of the world around us. We are diverse, curious, passionate and courageous. Our work is not assigned to us, we grab it. Our work goes way beyond what’s immediately expected from us. Structures and roles are there to help guide us, not limit and contain us. We want people who are passionate, open, multicultural, friendly, and smart. We are demanding of ourselves and expect a lot from our colleagues but stay driven by our sense of common purpose and solidarity. We are fair, and we don’t bullshit. We are fair to our team members, fair to our clients, fair to our partners, and we care about doing the right thing. We are fair when people join us, as team members, clients or partners, and we are fair when they leave. We owe the truth to our teams, partners and clients. Our marketing and sales only communicate facts (and plausible fairy tales).
