  • You take satisfaction in leaving code/processes/people better than when you got there
  • You subscribe to the idea that companies should be socially responsible.

  • You will not find a lot of office policies and politics around here, but you will find dogs. You’ll also find a lot of passionate people who are all owners in the company. That doesn’t just mean potential equity in the company (though it means that, too!), but also a sense of responsibility and pride that we are in this thing together.
