Customer obsession

Customer obsession

Deliver a WOW experience to every customer. Always ask, “What is best for the customer?”

Prioritize Impact

Prioritize impact over activity. Hard work alone isn’t enough to achieve our mission.

You Are an Owner

Own your work and hold your teammates accountable for results.

Together

Value diverse ideas and perspectives. Great ideas can come from anywhere and we’re building our team accordingly.

Act Fast, Learn Faster, Level-Up

Be curious. Always assume we can do better. Pull a string, you never know what you might uncover when you diverge.
