Culture

We start with people who are genuinely nice people to hang out with.  Make sure they are super smart and motivated.  Lastly, we have a no jerk policy…zero tolerance. No one likes working in a company with a difficult co-worker or boss.

When you focus on the right people, suddenly it’s possible to attack that big idea, crush extremely hard problems, and excite your customer base.

Our philosophy, in a nutshell, is “People, Product, Profit”.  Great companies are created in that order.
