Values

Self-Management

We are self-organized and are able to manage ourselves without somebody else telling us what to do. It is our responsibility to be informed about what is business-critical and what is sprint-critical. We strive to be our most productive. Our first instinct is to take initiative rather than expect a policy or ask for permission. We know when to collaborate, and when to ask for help.

Continuous Improvement

We always want to become better. We always take initiative to improve ourselves, the company, and our products. There will always be need for improvement and the next week could always be better than the last. We learn new things, and we share those things with our colleagues.

Trust

We place trust in our hiring process and afford a lot of responsibility to each indivual member of our team. We are all responsibile for bugs, problems and issues. No problem is somebody else's problem. We expect the best from each other, give each other the benefit of the doubt, encourage each other to take initiative to improve ourselves and the company, and provide direct and constructive help each other.

We show trust and respect for each other by telling the truth, and demonstrate honesty and integrity in our actions. We prefer transparency of information whenever possible.

Quality

We create working, maintainable, and understandable software that is enjoyable and easy to use. We improve the quality of the process and our code continiously. Beyond that, designing and building quality software means improving the security, privacy, and accessibility of the product, and includes improvements of life and reduction of harm for all users and contributors.
