Without clear, shared values, we wander independently and contradict one another. Everything’s harder when we all believe different things about what’s important to us, our company.
Here is a quick overview of what we value in you:
You make wise decisions (people, technical, business, and creative) despite ambiguity. You identify root causes, and get beyond treating symptoms. You think strategically, and can articulate what you are, and are not, trying to do. You smartly separate what must be done well now, and what can be improved later.
You listen well, instead of reacting fast, so you can better understand. You are concise and articulate in speech and writing. You treat people with respect independent of their status or disagreement with you. You maintain calm poise in stressful situations.
You demonstrate consistently strong performance so colleagues can rely upon you. You focus on great results. You exhibit bias-to-action, and avoid analysisparalysis
You learn rapidly and eagerly. You seek to understand our strategy, market, vendors, and clients. You are broadly knowledgeable about business, and technology. You contribute effectively outside of your speciality.
A Solution Mindset
You re-conceptualize issues to discover practical solutions to hard problems. You challenge prevailing assumptions when warranted, and suggest better approaches. You create new ideas that prove useful. You keep us nimble by minimizing complexity and finding time to simplify.
You inspire others with your thirst for excellence. You care intensely about our success. You celebrate wins. You are tenacious.
You are known for candor and directness. You are non-political when you disagree with others. You only say things about fellow employees you will say to their face. You are quick to admit mistakes.

You share information openly and proactively. Most importantly, You question actions inconsistent with our values whether its in team meetings, or one-to-one or informally
