We value trust and trustworthiness.

We embrace challenge.

  • We’re OK with challenging the status-quo and we aim to be thought-leaders as we navigate our evolving space. We actively seek out opportunities to be better at what we do, to grow, to ask for help, and to not be afraid to try new things.

We solve problems, together.

  • As we scale and break new ground, there is a constant stream of problems to solve - small and large. As individuals we lean into problems and don’t let them daunt us or deter us from our goals. We also actively bring in others so we can draw on our collective wisdom, collaborating within and across teams, with our partners and customers.

We deliver with speed and agility.

Given the critical nature of our service, we know that continued success will require us to balance the tension between “speed and agility” and “quality”. We must be vigilant against unnecessary friction, politics, and bureaucracy.

We are candid and kind.

  • We don’t shy away from direct or difficult conversations, giving constructive feedback when it’s needed. We do so with respectful candour and positive intent assuming the best in each other and always being mindful of the person first and the issue second.
