Ideal Candidate

  • Radical Honesty - Humans are fallible. Mistakes happen. Teams who treat mistakes with grace build trust and flourish. That’s why we default to transparency. “Truth is the beginning of every good to the gods, and of every good to man.” Plato

  • Autonomy & Accountability - People perform best when they’re entrusted to do their job. We encourage conviction in decisions and responsibility in actions. “If one's actions are honest, one does not need the predated confidence of others.” Ayn Rand

  • Solve for the customer - The entire point of business is to solve problems. That task is impossible without listening to customers. "The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” Albert Einstein

  • No voice left unheard - Insight can come from anyone. Treat every encounter as an opportunity to learn. “It takes two to speak the truth - one to speak and another to hear.” Henry David Thoreau

  • Resilience in failure - Building a company is hard. It’s how you react in hard times that defines your success. ”A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.” Seneca
