Our ValuesBe 20% WrongAs a startup, speed is extremely important. The quicker we move, the more mistakes we make. If we are making no mistakes, it means, quite simply, that we re not moving fast enough. Therefore, a 20% error rate is, not only permissible, but expected. If you re not wrong 20% of the time, you re not moving fast or ambitious enough.Be FearlessFear is the primary motivator of human action. It drives people to cherish safety and complacency, coupled with an aversion to risk and change. However, it s risk and change that advances the human race. Extreme risk and change is required to disrupt the digital commerce space as we know it. The outside world can t possibly have the same knowledge that we have within our company walls. While we re being called crazy, we must be fearless and driven by our internal conviction.Chase 10X, Not 10%The only way a startup with 10s of people can outcompete corporations with 1000s is by leveraging its force multipliers of nimbleness, talent, and creativity. Large corporations focus on 10% optimizations to generate millions in revenue. They cannot evoke major changes without years of preparation. As a startup, we don t have that luxury it also does not make economic sense to optimize something that s very small. There are always more incremental features to build. There are always more incremental people to hire. But, from product to people, we must consistently chase 10X opportunities and force multipliers.Don t be a BuzzkillOur team is here because we love what we do and the people around us. We embrace passion, intensity, and curiosity. We ask a lot of stupid questions. And, we have a culture that encourages it. This is otherwise known as the No Asshole Rule.
