We're a young company, but we've thought a lot about the culture we're creating and the way we work (with inspiration from & thanks to AngelList, Netflix, Patreon, and Carta). Here are some of our core values and behaviors. If this sounds interesting to you, please get in touch!
❤️ Be kind
always worth the effort
to be both kind
Agree and commit. If that's not possible, disagree and commit.
Respect and embrace diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas.
No brilliant jerks. No nitpicking. No bike-shedding.
😀 Be optimistic
This is creative work. Creating is for optimists.
Believe in yourself and your teammates.
Believe in what you're building.
Give new ideas room to grow.
🥇 Be ambitious for our customers
Our customers have been generally underserved. We should wildly exceed their expectations.
Obsess over the customer experience.
Hide complexity from our customers.
📊 Get the data
Learn by shipping. Launching & learning is better than deliberating.
Own the outcome. Get data on what's working and what isn't.
Share lessons learned, including negative results.
Strong opinions, weakly held.
Be willing to change your mind.
🏃♂️ Do great work sustainably
90% of success is a grind.
Doing the hard work is what makes you and the company valuable.
We judge the company (and each other) on results.
Results are often, but not always, linked to effort.
Results don't matter if you don't take care of yourself.
👩💻 Think together, execute independently
Do creative work, like roadmapping and product specs, together and synchronously.
Do independent work, like coding, solo and asynchronously.
Prefer asynchronous communication.
Keep meetings small and short.
