Having strong brand values that focus on our users and our people is why we will win
Focus on users
We will always focus on the user knowing that all else will follow.
Casual but energetic
Our atmosphere will be casual, but as new ideas emerge, they will be tested and put into practice with great speed and energy.
We want everything we create to outshine whatever came before, feel truly inspired, and push the edge over what's possible.
We will make our users’ experience simple, so that they feel in control, and have amazing experiences with our brand.
We will strive to show a deep respect for our people inside and, importantly, outside of the company.
