Our Values - Radical Transparency

  • Team not Family - We are a team, not a family. Like a team, we prioritize versatility, not letting your teammates down, relentless work ethic, and the ability to get the job done. Unlike a family, love is not unconditional, and the low performers will not be kept around.
    • Speed is Our Trademark - We value speed above all else. We fully support teammates making mistakes by prioritizing speed. Speed of iteration beats quality of iteration. Always prioritize integrity.
      • No Job is Beneath You - No matter if you are in the C-Suite or an intern, every job that pushes the company forward is a worthwhile task. Embrace every task as a chance to add value.
        • Education Obsessed - We are obsessed with providing students, educators, and administrators with the best learning experience possible. Learning success is the mission of this company. Prioritize user experience always.
          • Airport Test - Would you genuinely love spending 8 hours alone with this person? We value the airport test as a true test of likability. It is important to enjoy each other as human beings, and provide a safe space to make mistakes, take risks, and build an iconic company together.
            • Be a Gritty Optimist - Have a get things done attitude, always find the positive in every negative. We need emphatic belief in the Founders and the mission in order to accomplish the impossible, which we will do best together. Blame yourself for mistakes rather than blaming others, encourage one another to take risks and be solution oriented.
              • Well-Being - Your physical and mental health, as well as your family, come first above all else. Life is more important than the company. We are excited to help you live the most fulfilling, high quality life possible.
