Our EngineeringCore Values

  • Design for the Future, Build for Today: Don’t be limited by the present. Anticipate, architect, and design for the long-term so that we don’t have to rework our software as we grow. But build for today in terms of quality and time to delivery.
  • Be Product-Minded: By knowing our customers, we can build better products that empower them and help their customers. To be a great Organic MarTech engineer one must understand the organic marketing landscape.
  • Innovate: Step up the game. Find new ways to solve problems. Influence the entire product. Deliver better value for our customers. Create moats for our competition. Enhance our company’s brand, and enhance your own personal brand image.
  • Optimize for Value: Great products focus on building value rather than chasing an artificial deadline. Embrace continuous planning that believes in delivering products when they are ready.
  • Value Your Time: Think harder. Don’t settle. Strive for better outcomes than the last time in the same amount of time. Automate away toil and spend your energy solving newer, bigger, more interesting problems.
  • Be Biased to Build Right: How you create value is very important. Prefer open source over commercial products to invent/create value and accelerate delivery. Dependency on external products for value creation increases cost and risk, impedes innovation, and discounts value.
  • Seek Challenges: Good engineers just solve problems. Great engineers also seek and define new challenges. Invention and value creation happens when engineers show curiosity and initiative, and participate in defining “what’s next”.
  • Embrace Change: When we maintain the status quo, we hold ourselves back. Have an open mind. Don’t cling to existing processes, technical biases, etc. Try something new. We all learn and grow together.
