Our team is built on four key values that guide us toward our mission: to enable every developer to build world-changing applications.
Commit to Excellence
We commit to shipping products and serving customers with a singular focus on excellence. We take pride in breaking boundaries, constantly improving, and aiming to produce great (not just good) work in order to win the market. Excellence is how we build a category-defining company.
We believe that whole, healthy individuals produce consistently exceptional results. Whether we find work-life balance through time with friends and family, a healthy lifestyle, or intellectual pursuits, maintaining a healthy balance enables high performance.
Employees self-manage and focus on something outside of their core work responsibilities, ranging from a work related project to volunteering to simply spending more time with family.
We provide a $1,000 budget to help you get the most out of your work-from-home setup.
It is always nice to have everyone in the office, but good work is the higher priority. Our employees are free to arrange their work schedules to meet individual circumstances.
Communicate Openly & Honestly
We are our best when we communicate openly and honestly — understanding both our successes and our failures in order to continuously improve and enable each Roacher to effectively contribute to solving difficult problems.
In our industry, we talk a lot about responding to change quickly. Our Culture and Workplace Associate, Evan Atkinson, wrote this wonderful reflection on his experience taking our company's culture online and the human side of staying scrappy.

Respect Each Other
We approach discussions with humility and an open mind to guarantee that we'll learn something new or appreciate a problem from a new perspective. And that, in turn, leads to better outcomes.
