We are technology professionals with a passion to make software development better for
To improve the lives of everyone who comes into contact with the software development process. That includes both the people who want the software and the people who build it.
We build software that’s a pleasure to use, easy for other developers to work with, and makes people awesome at what they want to do
We keep healthy collaboration and relationships at the center of the entire development cycle
We look out for one another's best interests (or love, as we like to call it)
We choose processes and practices that create, repair, and grow healthy relationships and interactions
CORE VALUES AT THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING WE DO
We look out for the well-being of others, even if it may put us at a disadvantage. If a particular problem arises, maintaining the relationship and being relational about it is more important than the problem itself.
No one should be punished for being transparent or for trying to solve a problem and failing. We learn and grow best when people can safely try experiments and safely be fully honest.
The fastest way to adapt to issues is to raise them as quickly and honestly as possible with all parties concerned. Transparency is a key part of building a relationship of trust and mutual accountability.
No improvement can happen without acknowledging that one has room to grow and no one has all the answers. All of us can improve our thinking, our actions, and our products, so collaboration and feedback are not only welcomed—they are vital.
The best solutions and the highest productivity come from people working together toward a common goal. The team is the unit that produces and improves. The more collaboration that exists between us and our clients, the less risk there is in the project. Teams produce stronger solutions more quickly and more safely than disconnected individuals.
We keep our promises and don’t make promises we can’t keep. We choose our commitments carefully and are fully committed to the ones we make. We do what we say we will, and what you see is what you get. The fundamental desire for our actions to be consistent with our words brings all our other values into real experience.
