🤘 How we do it ?

People joining Alan are always surprised and delighted by our innovative working method. We have a set of cultural values that guide our approach to work, such as:
Members first. We put our members first, our team second, our shareholders third.
Radical Transparency. We make all choices in writing and adopt a direct and honest style of communication.
Personal & Team Growth. We are self-improving whilst helping others grow. We’re no ego-doers and we all edit the company.
Distributed Ownership. We trust our colleagues to make the right choices. We are not afraid to fail fast individually to learn collectively in the long run.
Fearless ambition. We shoot for the moon and work backwards. We focus on solving complex problems with simple principles far from ready made ideas.
