What makes us different?

Want some insight into how we work as a team? Here are our culture behaviours that are at the core of everything we do:

Be relentless about progress

To be the best at what we do, we push things forward with tenacity. 

There will always be blockers, we always find ways around them. 

Enjoy the journey

We celebrate successes and give kudos to our colleagues for a job well done, no matter how small.


Share and seek input

Our most valuable asset is our people. We embrace challenge and different opinions and are more interested in learning than being right. 

Risk failure to achieve success 

We iterate often, fail quickly, learn and go again. But this doesn't mean we sacrifice the quality of our work. We aim for excellence in everything we do but we also acknowledge that sometimes we need to say: for now, it is good enough. 

Own it and get it done

We don't point blame or find excuses. We are accountable and take responsibility for our mistakes and when we don't deliver. We totally own our failures and learn from them.
