We believe that in order to make an impact in the world, you must do it purposefully. We believe that having the determination to succeed and willingness to adapt to situations greatly increase the impact of our work.
We’ve seen too many failed projects that never made the impact that was originally promised, because there was no underlying purpose for the project to begin with, or a misaligned vision for what the product was supposed to accomplish. When you approach everything you do with a purpose and a resilience to succeed no matter the circumstances, you’re able to make a positive impact everywhere you go.
This is why we only invest in talent who are determined to succeed, and partner with clients who are purposeful in their mission. We exist to make an immediate and long-term impact on our clients & those in need.
We relentlessly pursue the truth.
We relentlessly pursue the truth with a deep focus on solving the problem at hand. We do our diligence and gain a deep understanding of the problem we’re solving before a single piece of code is written. We ask a lot of questions to uncover the real problem and verify the impact of the problem when we solve it.
We are calculated.
We cut once, measure twice. Once we start coding and architecting your digital solution, we will already have confidence in our direction. This means no false starts. No over promises and under-delivering. This also means that we take calculated risks if we see an opportunity for further success.
We adapt to our clients’ environment.
We find our way around, and adapt to every environment we’re thrown into. We’ve had the pleasure of working in every type of business environment (From Large enterprises to scrappy, chaotic bootstrapped startups), and in every situation, we keep our cool and find practical solutions to big problems. We embed ourselves within the client, whether that’s onsite in their offices or within our own confines.
We are persistent.
We have a bias for exploration. We will continue to find different ways to solve a problem until we’re confident that there will be little to no side effects. Instead of relying on brute-forcing solutions, we rely on our collective minds to uncover problems and solutions to anything we are working on. Our work is not done until it’s done and made an impact.
We are puzzle solvers.
We have a passion for overcoming challenges. We might spend a little more time upfront to understand what puzzle we’re solving, or how to solve the puzzle, but once we do, we’re filled with joy and fulfillment. Our team is stacked with problem solvers.
We are deeply focused.
We structure engagements to allow our entire team to be dedicated to individual projects and focus on making the biggest impact possible. We maintain deep focus in order to get into flow and solve deep problems.
We are not a code factory.
Yes, we are engineers at heart, but we are more interested in solving the problems and not just writing code.
