1. Be Curious
We know that we donât know a lot about our users. So we try to understand their behavior through data and interviews. We know that we donât know a lot about our co-workers. So we try to spend time with them, genuinely interested in who they are, and their personal lives. We know that we donât know how to increase revenue 10x. So we ask questions and try to figure it out. Be Curious. That is what sets apart our employees.
2. Be an Owner
We value ownership. We donât micromanage. We work with a sense of responsibility. You are the master of your own work. You are responsible for achieving the results in your work. You donât ask for others to give you work. You find your own work. Whatever you think is beneficial for the company, you do it. You donât focus on completing tasks. You focus on achieving results. You donât complain, but you make things/changes happen.
3. Action Focused/Lean/MVP
We value quick action. You donât spend hours planning. You act. You get results. You think very quickly. Then you act again. If you are not acting, you are wasting time. If you think only, you wonât get any feedback. You donât need to make a perfect ship. A small wooden log is enough to cross the river. You work with the following steps. Hypothesis â Test/Action â Result/Feedback â Hypothesis. You always think about the quickest path to achieving the result.
4. Radical Honesty
We are radically honest to each other. If you have something that is bugging you, you donât keep it to yourself. You approach the other person, and talk about it. Perhaps you were thinking wrong. Perhaps the other person needs to change. If you are not radically honest, you are blocking the full potential of others and you. Feedback is how we grow. Care for the team and be radically honest. This is how we avoid politics. We donât have room for politics. If you are interested in growing your own influence and not growing the company/team, you are not fit for us. We donât like to beat around the bush. Be straight with kindness.
5. Others First, You Second
We put others first. It is your job to make others work easier. You need to google things before asking. Donât disturb others' work flow, unless necessary. Think whether what you have written will be easily understandable for the other person. Revise what you wrote. Include screenshots. Be descriptive and detailed. Look for documents before asking. Itâs better to use your time than to use others' time. This will make everybody respect each other more.
