Sweat the details
Details make up the big picture. They shape our product and how our users interact with it. We do our best to pay attention to the things others miss, and set the quality bar high.
Reenvisioning the ecommerce experience is an ambitious undertaking. We welcome the challenge, are not afraid to break conventions, and always support each other in the process.
Solving complex problems takes collaboration and understanding others’ strengths. We keep an open mind as we strive for growth and continuous improvement on a company and personal level.
Our team is remote-first, and just like our customers, they come from many countries and cultures. We encourage information to flow freely and know the importance of getting outside our bubbles.
Each team member comes with their own story and experiences. We appreciate differing points of view, assume positive intent, and see each interaction as a chance to learn and evolve our thinking.
Innovation happens when we unpack problems and question our assumptions. We are deep thinkers who take a first-principles approach to creating solutions.
