  • Be NICE: We believe a great business can be built by nice people that are nice to each other.
  • Play to WIN: Bring your "A" game. We have high standards but favor speed over perfection.
  • Love your FEEDBACK: Get feedback to improve your game and give feedback generously to help others improve theirs.
