What We Enable People To Do
Infrastructure is complicated, but managing it shouldn’t be. We design so that people do their jobs easier, get in and out of our software quicker, and focus on bigger and better things.
Let’s Get All Hands On Deck
The best way to create strong collaborative cultures is to work with principles. Here’s a little about us.
United Together by Our Differences
We agree to show up as our authentic selves. Recognition of our global and diverse workforce allows for a safe environment that is open to different points of view, identities, and abilities, which makes us all better together.
We reject siloed work in favor of co-creation by maximizing our time with our cross-functional partners as a way to connect the dots across teams and products.
Live in The Customer’s Mind
We put our relationships with our customers first by metaphorically sitting with them. We take the longest view of our relationships by focusing on customer outcomes versus team outputs. We do this through a continuous feedback loop.
Leading With Empathy Through Transparency
We inspire each other to lead through empathetic openness in all our interactions. We say less and ask more by starting with questions and listening to others. Through this cycle of empathy and listening, we foster a loop of honest and direct feedback.
Through Learning We Grow
We exercise a growth mindset by taking smart risks and failing fast. We use the pattern of discover, define, ideate, and learn as a way to better ourselves and the solutions we co-create.
We trust each other by giving autonomy to our teammates. With a less is more approach, we harness the energy of solution-seeking with product delivery.

Through SHAPE, Our First Internal Design Conference
