Our values

No matter what we’re doing - whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other - we live by our values.

We believe in delivering useful technology that solves real problems for real businesses.  We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always “cool” but makes a difference.

We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel.  We’re united when we have each other’s backs - when something goes wrong, we don’t blame, we work together to fix it.  We embrace differences of opinion to end up with better outcomes.  We don’t let our egos win.

We believe that an unstoppable drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the best way to build great things.  We are biased towards action - we make informed decisions and then we act.  There is no such thing as an impossible problem, just a great challenge to sink our teeth into.

What excites us

  • People leadership abilities, able to drive/support/coach others to achieve results
  • Natural collaborator who thrives on bringing people together to execute on high importance, high urgency work
  • Highly organised with an affinity for detail, planning and documentation
  • Structured - able to quickly cut through complex problems; ability to separate signal from noise
  • Interest in tech and understanding (or a desire to develop understanding) of RESTful APIs and cloud native engineering.
  • Ability to carefully and explicitly manage trade-offs between speed, quality, and client friction, working collaboratively with stakeholders
  • Influencing skills to help build consensus across teams
  • Outcome driven, hands on, and willing to get involved in any tasks as required to get the job done!
