We think behavior matters more than words


Artifact Memes

These are the core behaviors we strive to imitate on our team.

Left Arrow
Right Arrow
Be proactively accountable and introspective

Don’t wait for subordination or corporate forced compliance. Proactively take responsibility, learn, and move forward.

Be a systems thinker instead of a process hound

Anyone can create and document a new process, but few are capable of understanding how they influence other teams and processes.

Identify key risks and assumptions

Identify your known knowns, and your known unknowns, so you’ll be prepared your unknown unknowns.

Make small, frequent, and constantly kept agreements

We focus on decomposing big decisions into tiny agreements that we’re capable of keeping and getting our arms around.

Focus on the cross functional team instead of your job description

We believe the inputs and outputs of multidisciplinary teams create outstanding business and customer outcomes.

Constantly teach yourself how to decide

Building a latticework of mental models prepares you to make complex decisions. Discover new mental models and train yourself how to use them.

Focus on making good decisions over the long term

You have worth outside of the results of one particular decision. We believe the incremental learnings that come from failures lead to successful outcomes.

Transparently document your communications

We ensure the entire team is able to understand what decisions were, why they were made, and their corresponding outcome.


Our Benefits

We strive to be thoughtful, competitive, and differentiated in the benefits that we offer our employees. Our benefits package is designed to care for the whole employee— in and outside of work.

Employee stock ownership plan
Plus icon

Startups are difficult and they need talent to be around long enough to execute against organizational priorities and strategic initiatives. They're also a lot of work— so we feel you should be asymmetrically incentivized for your hard work. We make our employees owners, so they can harvest the benefits of a growing business.
