More about our team
Everything we do on the communications team is driven by business impact, and every project has one owner who is empowered as the key decision maker. We determine success metrics up front and restlessly drive towards them. We strive for transparency and awareness in everything we do, but we are comfortable not knowing the details on everything. We embrace our “open company, no bullshit” value and have the grit to tell it like it is. We're good listeners, especially the voice of our customer. We move really fast. We take risks and fail (which is OK!). We take away key lessons to ensure we don't repeat the same mistakes again. We play as a team.
