Our Guiding Principles
- We wrote these principles to be actionable, to inform decision-making and to provide a sense of what’s important and what’s right.

Perfection is the enemy of progress. Always ask “why.” Think big, start small, collect data, and iterate quickly.

Seek exponential gains in our work by improving the lives of colleagues and customers.
- Practice diligence
Measure twice and cut once. Plan thoughtfully, always have someone double-check your work, and take deliberate action.
- Spread integrity
Be transparent and honest. Give direct feedback.
- Take action
Err on the side of action.No one is above any task; take ownership and get things done.
- Think forward
Always think about what you can do today to put the company in the best position in the future.
