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 and we have each other’s backs – when something goes wrong, we don’t blame, we work together to fix it. Transparency in our interactions is critical to drive towards our goals as a team. We openly share all information with all colleagues by default, unless we have a very good reason not to. 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. We inspect and question the status quo with curiosity, unafraid to ask the hard questions. There is no such thing as an impossible problem, just a great challenge to sink our teeth into.
