What we look for
Mindset Over Skill Set
We are meticulous about hiring people with the right mindset. We know that technical skills and subject matter familiarity can be developed, but alignment on values and the mindset we show up with is the raw material that truly counts. So, we hire and support people who are humble, curious with a hunger to learn, clever, fun, open, friendly, flexible, accountable, hard-working and community-minded.
Building the right team starts with trust. Honesty, dependability and competence are non-negotiables. For psychological safety to thrive, trust must be rock solid. We operate in an open and accountable manner, admitting when we don’t know something and asking for help when we need it. We keep our commitments and show up with an unusual level of care for each other.
Teaching and Learning
We aspire to be world-class, pushing ourselves and challenging each other to lift our game. We have committed professional development budgets for all staff, regularly down tools for “Guild Days” and run a pretty awesome book club. We dedicate Thursday lunchtimes to "Learning Lunches" where we share knowledge on whatever got someone else excited recently. We value open and honest discussion, asking each other for help and learning from our mistakes as a team.
Our minds are our most powerful tools. We operate in an ever changing landscape with new technologies, fads, functionality and pitfalls around every corner. It takes perseverance, curiosity and a smart mind to stay on top of our game. That’s why we look for unashamed geeks who take unusual levels of pride in delivering their best work.
