Additional Information

Our Creed: 

We will never stop learning. We won’t just work on things that are assigned to me. I know there’s no such thing as a status quo. I will build our business sustainably through passionate and loyal customers. We will never pass up an opportunity to help out a colleague, and we’ll remember the days before I knew everything. We are more motivated by impact than money. We will communicate as much as possible, because it’s the oxygen of a distributed company. We are in a marathon, not a sprint, and no matter how far away the goal is, the only way to get there is by putting one foot in front of another every day. Given time, there is no problem that’s insurmountable.
