We work together to create an environment in which we can all thrive. We acknowledge that separating a “work self” from a “personal self” is often difficult. We strive to create a culture where everyone feels safe and respected sharing their personal interests and identities. At the same time, we support candidates and coworkers who wish to preserve separation between their personal and work selves. We are sensitive to power dynamics and explicitly examine the ones at work in our company.
We are cognizant of the pitfalls of small company monocultures and of how easy it is to accidentally perpetuate one. We seek coworkers who share our values, are committed to our company’s mission, and will engage in crafting healthy team dynamics that support everyone. We actively examine the many ways that our industry elevates privileged points of view (especially the cis white male perspective), and we work to avoid replicating these flaws.
Our company leverages the power of human relationships to help people live happier and healthier lives. We keep the same focus internally. Our culture and habits put a strong emphasis on self-care. We encourage humor and lightheartedness to avoid taking ourselves too seriously. We understand that building a company is an ultra-marathon, and we help each other work hard but sustainably.
We hire teammates who desire to learn as much as possible about the realities of running a growing company. We communicate openly about the rationale behind the decisions we make so that everybody can learn from the results.
We interact primarily as coworkers, but we understand that our co-working relationships require as much active work as close friendships. We have frequent one-on-ones, share meals regularly, strongly encourage Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), and practice honest, compassionate feedback. We learn from each other, and respect the power of coaching while providing mutual mentorship. We all work hard to be the best versions of ourselves with each other.
