Great Place to Work®.
These values are our set of guiding principles – how decisions are made, what we look for in hiring, and how we behave, individually and together.
You value all aspects of diversity and treat everyone with respect. You actively seek ways to co-create an environment where everyone feels safe to be vulnerable and honest. You give feedback open-heartedly and with grace, and assume the same when you receive it.
You seek differing opinions and new information to put what you think you know to the test, both in your work and work relationships. You approach projects with curiosity and are unafraid to update your thinking when you know more.
You’re attuned to how joyful you feel and how joyful it is to work with you. You take responsibility for your self-care, work relationships, and anything that impacts your ability to work joyfully. You find ways to add more joy, from investing in relationships with co-workers to taking part in company traditions in ways that feel authentic to you.
You act like an owner and take responsibility for your team’s outcomes as well as their tasks. You proactively seek alignment with others to maximize our collective impact.
You believe in our purpose (helping people feel close), and are energized to work hard and do what it takes to maximize its impact on the world.
You define the most impactful outcome and you take the shortest path to achieve it. And you actively identify what that means in every situation, carefully avoiding false trade-offs (e.g. quality vs speed).
