Our team is built on four key values that guide us toward our mission: Make Data Easy
Commit to Excellence
We commit to providing solutions that demonstrate a singular focus on excellence. We take pride in what we do – aiming to reach high, break boundaries, and build to last – because striving to do our best work is its own reward.
We believe that balanced individuals produce exceptional results. Whether you find balance through time with friends and family, a healthy lifestyle, or intellectual pursuits outside of work, taking time to establish balance makes your work more productive.
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.
Roachers have the option to temporarily work from another city, state, or even country - the ultimate accommodation for work/life balance.
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.
Be Transparent About
Both Highs and Lows
Everyone deserves to know what’s going on - even when it involves failures. We trust and respect our employees, our open-source community, and our customers. We believe by being transparent, we all have the opportunity to learn from one another and grow for the benefit of everyone.
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.

Everyone is here because they’ve spent years studying and working hard. 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.
