Motivated and hardworking

This one means a lot to our team, and should mean a lot to you, too. You will work really hard,

Sometimes we all wear a few different hats.

You'll be put to the test every now and again, but we're in it together. You won't find any jerks on

our team.


User Experience

You should care a lot about creating an exceptional experience for the people that use the

technology you create. After all, technology isn't about code or new tools - it's about creating

value for people.
