WHAT ELSE ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Character and integrity rank pretty high on the list. Our team is guided by our core values:

HOW WE TREAT EACH OTHER
Respectful Candor: We believe that engaging in timely, constructive, and open discourse is an act of respect that makes for a more transparent and productive work environment.
Empathy: We establish a strong partnership of trust with our co-workers and partners. We build human connections in order to understand each other.
Inclusivity: We strive to celebrate and welcome people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Differing perspectives help us make better decisions and have more fulfilling experiences.

HOW WE TREAT OUR WORK
Curiosity: We learn every day through deliberate inquiry and exploration. We re-examine assumptions to be a better company, offer better products, and become better colleagues.
Accountability: We celebrate our successes and own our failures. Taking responsibility for our actions allows us to learn from our experiences.
Bias Toward Action: We know speed matters in business so we embrace quick and calculated risk-taking. We understand that many actions are reversible and therefore we are solutions-oriented, even when facing obstacles and challenges.
Challenger Mentality: We don’t allow ourselves to be comfortable with our success. We are hungry to become the best and create more value for our audience.
Clarity of Purpose: We understand the “why" in our work, which helps us to operate at our highest level of performance and efficiency.
