Go where no one has gone before
Work on hard things that will add customer value. Don't reinvent the wheel. Re-use when possible
Bias for action
This principle is a hat tip to Amazon's Leadership Principles. Speed matters. When decisions are reversible, we make them quickly. We build things and test our hypotheses with the same speed
Keep it super simple. Don't over-engineer it if it doesn't add value. Focus on what needs to get done and get it done
Be an owner
Be ready to stand by your work and take constructive criticism at the same time. Gain ownership and respect through what you build
Do What You Love
Work on problems you care deeply about with people you respect. If you are passionate about what you do, everything else will follow.
Customer Obsession
Care for your customers, deliver real value and build trust
Disagree, but once its decided, commit
Another Amazon principle. We expect you to disagree and drive open debate. Debate ideas, not people. Once we decide after enough discussion, commit to the decision. Don't disregard it or be passive-aggressive in response
No politics
We have a tough problem to solve and don't waste time taking personal shots, back biting, gossiping or engaging in any form of politics
No jerks
Don't be selfish, play games or manipulate. Don't claim credit or ownership without actually doing any heavy lifting. We're a team with a goal, and we achieve that with cooperation
