πŸ’œ Our Core Values

Before joining a company, it’s important you know what we value and how we operate. We look for and nurture these values in every member on our team.

  • Customer Obsession: We're focused on our customer's unmet needs, their anxieties, and frustrations when it comes to influencer marketing. We build products that help alleviate these. We go above and beyond for our customers during onboarding and support. When they win, we win.
  • Self-Agency: We take ownership of problems. Customer makes a mistake? It's on us to fix. Someone on the team messes things up? It's upon us to pick things back up. Competitor launches smear campaign? We continue focusing on our game.
  • Bias for action: We do things quick. Not end of week, today. We hotfix minor bugs for customers, even if they don't need them immediately. We take action on suggested improvements asap. We do not wait for approvals or meetings for easily reversible decisions. We take action.
  • Systems Thinking: Fix the system, not the problem. We break problems down to first principles and figure out ways to make an order of magnitude better solution to them. We ask: How can we make something 10x faster, 10x cheaper, or 10x more impactful to our customers? Then we do that.

If you resonate with these, then we must talk!
