CORE VALUES

Long-Term Optimists. 🌎
We believe there is a better future for kid’s education. We know that tackling a broken system will not be easy. It will not happen fast. But it will be worth it. We always keep our eye towards a better future for the next generation. That means we dream in years, not days. We focus on the forest, not the trees. And in all the decisions we make, we keep children and their futures at the center of it all.

Impact Over Everything.💥
At Juni, we believe success is measured by impact, not by the quantity of output. Tackling a systemic problem, like education, will not be successful with incremental change. For this reason, we stop low impact work to focus on bigger swings that will move the needle in a big way. If the outcome is not what we hoped for, we praise the effort, learn from it, and focus on the next big swing. Trying and failing is better than doing nothing.

Data. Data. Data -- and some intuition.  📈 
We make decisions purposefully, leveraging the data we have available to us. There will be times that we need to make decisions without a full data picture. In those moments, it's important to trust our gut and experience.

Extreme Ownership 💪
We are a small yet mighty team. No task is too small or too big. This means you can drive real change in your role. We are scrappy and frugal where we need to be, and we use the resources we have to build something great. This is all because we take pride in, and are passionate about, the change we are making in the world.  

Transparent, Humble Collaboration. 🤝  
We pride ourselves as underdogs who are tackling a massive challenge. We know we can’t do it alone and have so much to learn from our teammates. We work together with directness, openness, active listening, and respect. We believe that being challenged is part of what makes teams and companies great, so we are not afraid of debate and love building on each other's ideas.
