What Drives Us
Our guiding principles help lead our work. In fact, they’re baked into our culture, our process, and our DNA. Consider them our secret sauce; minus the whole “secret” thing.
We believe any problem can be solved when approached with optimistic curiosity and the desire to learn and make things better.
Bet the Garden, Not the Farm
We’re not into taking huge, uneducated risks. Rather than spending large amounts of time and money on a product that may or may not work, we believe in creating a minimum viable product and iterating as we release it into the world. By starting small and using data and feedback to inform our decisions, we're able to make changes as we go, creating a better product that more users love.
Products, Not Projects
In digital, there’s no such thing as being done. Products continuously evolve and improve over time, which users have come to expect. That’s why we prioritize the product as a whole, rather than focusing on a short, bulleted list of deliverables.
Learn and Adapt Fast
Overthinking is the death of innovation. We believe if you wait to launch a product until it’s perfect, it’ll never launch at all. The faster you learn, the faster you can adapt and build what users want.
Run Like a Startup
Many companies wish to emulate startups, but so few have the guts to actually do so. We run like a startup, quite literally, by investing in our own ideas and continuously inventing new products that pushing ourselves and our craft.
Strategy is the Execution
A plan is only as good as the ability to bring it to life. That’s why we have such a diverse team of makers, planners, and dreamers to solve problems and ensure the final product is absolutely wonderful.
