Humans & Technology
Human beings are social animals who like to connect and share. We live in a world where technology is becoming more and more prevalent. Some people see this evolution as a dehumanization of society. We see it as an historical opportunity for human beings to connect easily, break down the walls of old hierarchies, and afford more opportunities and social justice.We value discussion, intelligence and design. We use technology as a tool, and not as an end in itself, to simplify life.
Trust & Transparency
Trust is the basis of any relationship. Deep trust doesn’t happen overnight. It needs to be built over time, but we do our best to nurture the process and make it easy. We tend to trust people readily and expect trust to grow naturally and quickly. We don’t compromise on trust, though. Break the trust once and don’t be surprised to start from scratch. So, keep your promises. Commit. Help others. Be there. Give your best.
Transparency comes together with trust. Team members make all internal activities completely accessible to the entire team: meeting reports, discussions, roadmaps, releases, etc. Nobody should encounter any friction in accessing information.
We trust everybody to make the best use of the information at their disposal.
Comfort in complexity
There is no such thing as a “simple job”. Being excellent in any job is complex. You need to understand the problem inside and out. The path is difficult and takes time. It is important to be humble and to be comfortable with the complexities we are faced with. Even for things that look easy, you should never underestimate or oversimplify. Instead, you must try to understand all the subtleties. It is easy to think that something should be simple to do; it is much harder to actually do it well.
We are human beings doing work for other humans that solve problems around the world.
