What matters to us

We believe that our culture is one of our most important assets and we’ve wrapped it up with three key values that we do our best to live up to every day:

·      Hustle to deliver on hard and meaningful problems - what we’re doing is really ambitious and difficult, so we’ll need plenty of hustle to get it done.

·       Develop sustained high performance - we’re figuring out what high performance looks like for the people on our team so we can support them and each other to perform at our best sustainably.

·       Build the machine that builds the machine - it’s not enough to design amazing products, we need to design the means to manufacture these products, at scale.
