From hiring to day-to-day work, here is our mantra:
Get it done
Do the right thing
Be creative and shine
All work and no play...well we know what that leads to... It’s easy to have fun when we genuinely enjoy working together. It helps that we’ve never gotten into the habit of taking ourselves too seriously. That’s why, if you were to visit our office, you’d just as likely see our CEO joking around as any of our programmers.
Do we care if our programmers decide to take naps, beat that one level in Call of Duty, or take time off for class? Not one bit. Because we measure ourselves in results. Our folks know: Do what you gotta do, but get it done. Done well. Done on time. Done under budget. But done.
Some people get their adrenaline by skydiving and asking their crushes out on dates. We get ours from solving problems. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as solving a challenge that no one else has been able to solve. If it keeps us up at night, runs through our heads while we shower, and distracts us from Call of Duty, then it’s like beating the big boss at the end of the game. There’s nothing quite like it.
Sometimes doing the right thing can hurt in the short-term. But it always pays off in the long run. This is one of the hardest decisions to make in business, but it’s one we are dedicated to making every single time. Rain, shine, gains, losses...we strive to always do the right thing by our clients and by our team.
We know we aren’t the center of the universe. It is our responsibility to be people that contribute to the larger ecosystem, rather than taking away from it or taking advantage of it. When it comes to making decisions, if we always choose to “help first”, then we are on the right track. We are people first...and professionals second. The fact that our work fulfills us as both people and professionals? Pure gold.
Creativity is one of the most fascinating characteristics. By definition, there is no one-size-fits-all creativity. Some creative folks are artistic while others are systematic, and still others are crazy and amazing! Creativity can solve any problem. We look for people who are creative, at work, and with their own causes and passions. You can't go wrong with a team like that. It’s downright beautiful.
