  • Data-Driven: We use data and a scientific approach to making the right decisions for our users.
  • Ownership: We trust in ourselves to do the right thing, which means we are very flexible but we are accountable for the results of our actions.
  • Minimalists: We try to produce the desired result with little or no waste of time or resources. Work smarter, not harder.
  • Compassionate: We want compassionate people who make the workplace a training ground for personal growth.
