We want to have a positive impact on the world and create things that matter to the individual and to the many. We strive to achieve this goal through a balance of creativity and hard work.
We measure our work by quantitative and qualitative impacts, and we try to maintain open and accurate communication of the impact to the public. This makes us continuously pause and reflect on our work and make sure we stay true to our cause.
A sense of belonging is key to making us feel connected to each other even though we work across different time zones. By sharing the moments of our lives with each other, we can heal from past experiences and feel gratitude and joy for the organization as a whole. This allows us to connect better, feel involved and motivated with the team and the organization as a whole.
We believe that autonomy is both a skill but also an outcome of ones environment. And we believe collaboration and autonomy produce the best work when balanced.
We are all learning how to increase autonomy in our environment by carefully developing our ability to respect the autonomy of others, to not be pushy, to always remember to offer and accept help and make sure every voice is heard no matter whether they are a majority or minority.
Relationships are meaningful when they have a basis of trust. We build trust through kindness, humility and integrity.
We listen to each other's needs and develop the skills necessary to receive and give feedback and show appreciation.
We strongly believe that diversity attracts different talent, which in turn allows us to look at problems from different angles and drive innovation.
In our organization, diversity is rooted in our culture: we value everyone's ideas, background and profession whether it is when making decisions, or solving problems. We consider this diversity to be one of our greatest strengths.
We imagine that people never stop learning or growing throughout their lives or careers. Our society changes so rapidly that we learn new behaviors on a regular basis. We are constantly curious about how to grow ourselves.
Through personal growth, our team develop their hard and soft skills equally and this helps us work better and build better products. In everything we do, we create opportunities for personal growth and development.
We continuously generate data and information that reveal our choices and motivations, but we have little control or access to it. Many of the services that we use prioritize data collection, while compromising our freedoms, agency and trust.
We are an open source community and we are tackling these challenges through shared creativity and collaboration. We build tools that empower people to create a new web - one that is private, trustworthy and free from centralized control.
