Our mission is to enhance work life through applied AI.

Be humble, be great, and win.

 

Because winning is fun, and frankly, who doesn't like to have fun?

 

Clarity over politeness.

 

Nothing prevents shipping more than confusion masked as politeness. We respect each other more by not beating around the bush.

 

Don't add people...

 

...unless they change our mind. People increase communication costs exponentially, resulting in slower execution.
