We're building a family, our chosen circle, around a set of values that guide how we work and interact with the world around us. Our cultural norms at work can't be turned off when the computer's away - we live these in every part of our lives. Our team isn't for everyone, so if you're right for it, the following values should resonate strongly with how you live your life.


Loyalty!We believe in loyalty to our customers and our team because without them we serve no purpose. We are loyal to ourselves and these core values, as they shape us and define what we believe will make us successful. 


Lead by Example! We understand that there is literally no other way to lead than from the front. We cannot teach or expect anyone to follow our lead if we haven’t done the work ourselves and set the standard on what to do and how to do it.


Go The Extra Mile! We always go the extra mile for our customers, our team, and the company. We strive to always over-deliver and exceed people’s expectations in everything we do, and we do so with enthusiasm. It’s not just something we say but it’s something that we do, and our daily actions reflect this.

Be Responsible! We always accept full responsibility for our actions and performance. We do not pass our responsibilities to others, we always take it fully upon ourselves to make it right. 


Take Initiative! When we see something that needs to be done, we do it. We are self-driven and look to constantly push ourselves forward and do what needs to be done to succeed.
