We have strong customer focus - we connect directly with customers who are using our products, and use their guidance to make meaningful improvements.
We ship - we are huge fans of build/measure/learn with a weekly cadence.
Team-centric development - we are strong believers of limiting our work-in-progress and bias towards working collaboratively.
We value software quality and technical growth - our code runs on millions of devices every single day, so it needs to be stable, performant, and trustworthy.
