Our Values

Many things are sure to change over time, and we’ll adapt when they do. One thing that won’t change, however, are the values we consider vital to our success and to our customers’ success.

Think Long Term

We’re pursuing lasting customer success and market leadership. Sometimes we may say no to apparent shortcuts along the way.

Make Every Day Count

Investing the same focused energy each day will deliver huge returns over time—whether our goals are weeks, months, or years away.

Win and Lose Together

We trust in each other’s talents, celebrate our collective success, and learn from failures as a team. Help is requested early and volunteered quickly.

Embrace Authenticity

Diversity of backgrounds and perspectives is our natural strength. Each of us is responsible for proactively guarding and growing this quality.
