Our Purpose & Values

 
 

We believe the world would be a better place if everyone defined and spoke plainly about the change they’re trying to make. Here's the why behind our what.


Our Purpose

We believe organizations exist to serve people and manifest change. We believe organizations are able to do their best work when that work feels meaningful to every employee. Each person should understand how their contributions ladder up to something greater than themselves.

The old models for organizing and working together are becoming obsolete due to ever-increasing speed, scale, and complexity. Organizations of all sizes – and in all categories – need tools to adapt to this new world; digital tools that promote adaptivity and responsiveness, but also experimentation and transparency.

We’re making opinionated software for individuals and teams to pursue meaningful work, together.


Our Values

These values shape how we strive to act as individuals, and measure whom we hope to work with in the future:

TRANSPARENCY

Default to open. Be explicit. Broadcast information so that it can be leveraged for the collective good.

HONESTY

Create trust by expecting and accepting the frank truth. Seek and receive feedback from one another.

EMPATHY

Connect with each other and with our community. Share stories and seek to understand motivations.

EXPERIMENTATION

We honor curiosity as a cornerstone of intelligence and positive progress. Offer and explore new ideas, even if their value is uncertain. If you can’t agree: agree on an experiment, and trust the results.

PLAY

Get freaky! Lower inhibitions, invite collaboration, and unlock your team’s full potential. 

“Take chances, make mistakes, get messy.”
