Core Values

Humanity:
Humanity is the ability to make your peers and partners happy to work with you. This includes being social and open with your coworkers and building deep trusts. In a remote company you don't get this for free, you have to intentionally work for it.

Efficiency:
Efficiency is the tendency to optimize your time:output. It is linked with workflow-obsession and maximal utilization of tools.
 
Feedback:
Feedback is the tendency to seek external validation. That means measuring over assuming. This is linked with reduced cycle times and iterative approaches.
