  • We have a bias toward action and expect a high degree of personal ownership because that’s the only way to reach our goals.
  • We care deeply about intellectual honesty and making sure we are asking ourselves the right questions.
  • We make personal growth a priority, helping employees learn, grow and reach their goals.
  • We are building a diverse and inclusive environment through specific sourcing and hiring policies designed to counteract implicit bias and encourage diversity and fairness.
