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.

Remote-work friendly: Work from home, work from the office, work from the moon — you decide.

401(k) employer match: We want to help you prepare for the future, now.
