Our core values guide every decision we make, setting the foundation for how we support and engage with our employees, customers, communities, and partners.

Empathy

We're humans first. We seek to understand why people do what they do and believe that innovation comes from human-centric questions, discoveries, and decisions. We act with compassion and build trust by owning our impact on the people and systems around us.

Inclusion

We welcome diverse perspectives and value our differences. We're intentional about cultivating a respectful and welcoming environment with no ceiling on opportunity. Collaboration is our superpower.

Agility

We're a multi-disciplined team that’s focused on execution but nimble enough to adapt as the needs of our company, industry, and world evolve. We see change as opportunity.

Grit

We are energetic problem-solvers. We roll up our sleeves and figure it out as we go, navigating ambiguity with resilience. We’re powered by a shared sense of purpose and commitment to delivering excellence.

Curiosity

We’re humble learners with deep curiosity about 
the world, technology, and each other. We're active listeners and questioners, skilled at breaking down complex problems and making sense of them. We're unafraid to challenge the past and present, and are driven in the pursuit of truth and continuous improvement.

Transparency

Openness is at the core of everything we do. We disrupt knowledge silos and seek feedback early and often. We take pride in contributing our work to the open-source community and owning our role as educators.
