  • We believe in two equal track career growths between senior individual contributors & managers. We want people to contribute where they feel most impactful.
  • We believe in small, accountable & autonomous teams of amazing people, eager to learn, teach & constantly improve our way of working.
  • People have a strong sense of ownership & accountability for what theyre building. What we build today will be the foundation for dozens of other systems in the future.
  • We are very frank on discussing technical matters. If one disagrees with how things are being done, we encourage them to speak up & help us get to the truth faster.
