Working at Ethos

Our cultural values mean a lot to us:

Serve our families We act with integrity and do everything we can to delight the customer.

Speak your mind We believe in having strong opinions – loosely held. We’re operating as one team, one dream so while disagreements may occur, we do what’s best for the overall goal.

Bias for impact In order to revolutionize the industry, we have to win by overachieving; have the ambition to think big with the practicality of starting small.

Intellectual rigor We practice first-principles thinking, make decisions rooted in data, and push ourselves and our teammates to be experts in our fields and exercise strong attention to detail.
