Company Culture

Our team is human. We recognize that even the best people make mistakes, and we deliberately foster a culture of psychological safety. We act in good faith, and we trust that our teammates act in good faith. We are open, transparent, and honest about all things. Internally, we talk openly about our financials, the state of our business, and our business and engineering decisions. We collaborate closely on hard engineering tasks. When we make mistakes or miss estimates, we own up to our actions and work together to become better engineers and teammates. We improve our team rather than blaming our team members.

Our team is scrappy. We don't let perfect be the enemy of done. We focus on iterating with customer feedback rather than getting everything right the first time. We prefer prototypes over speculation. We experiment with engineering and product strategies to help us build the best possible product. We experiment with our culture and processes to help us move as quickly and efficiently as we can.

Our team is deliberate. We use data and metrics to focus our engineering efforts on the areas of greatest impact. We make well thought-out trade-offs between delivery time, technical debt, and risk. We think hard about when to be customer-driven and when to follow our roadmap. We optimize for engineering impact on revenue. We build our engineering culture intentionally to help us meet these goals.
