Company Culture

We're an experienced team of thinkers and doers with a passion for bringing security and people together. We value new ideas and find that learning everyday is just as essential as breathing. Some of our values include:

Do the right thing, always - Even when it's hard. Even when no one is watching. Even when it may hurt or be uncool. We value the legacy we'll leave on people we interact with and reflect on such impacts often.

Cohesion over correctness - We win together. And when we get it wrong, we do so together. And then we fix it. Together. When we don't see eye to eye, we disagree and commit.

Default to action - We will have won or lost not by what we did not do, but by what action we took. We strike the perfect balance of knowing when to pause to think critically and shipping with haste. We value growth over perfection. Speed is an ally. We celebrate our wins, but for just long enough. Momentum, momentum, momentum!
