Our Values 

Our core cultural values are manifested in our practices and processes every day. We highly value transparency and fairness in everything we do. We look for people who like to move quickly, are ambitious yet humble and have a great sense of humour. If you have a mischievous spark of fun, that’s even better.

You have:

  • A natural tendency to take initiative, achieve results and generally #GSD.

  • A desire to constantly stay organized and create efficiency using technology, bringing order to chaos and uncertainty. 

  • Teamwork is your middle name. You want to brainstorm with the best of them and are continually looking for ways to do it better.

  • A humbleness to recognize that sometimes you’ll need to apologize and admit mistakes (we’re all human after all!)

  • Understand and work well in startup culture - be able and willing to take on all sorts of tasks and responsibilities. 

We list our values and beliefs first because they are non-negotiable; if you're still reading then check out some of the responsibilities you will own.
