Our Values

Everything we do is built on the foundation of our core values. We are truth seekers, changemakers, and believe that every human being's journey is unique.

Start with How

We act responsibly and think about the consequences of our actions. We ask how our decisions (e.g., new features, campaigns, partnerships) will impact the wellbeing of our audience, creators, and society at large.

Be Curious Seekers

We seek the truth and know that it is an evolutionary process. We explore ideas and give other people’s ideas space to exist. We relentlessly experiment, iterate, and learn along the way. We use curiosity as a means of discovery.

Create Simple Experiences

We do simple things and do them better than anyone else. We find ways to add more through subtraction. We remove the noise, the extra steps, the bells, and whistles. We believe that simple is elegant.

Be Authentic

We value authenticity and genuine relationships. We act in an honest, truthful, and transparent way. We do this without ulterior motives or being hurtful to others. We are humble and celebrate what it means to be human.

Embrace Diversity

We are inclusive and find strength in diverse backgrounds. We believe that everyone has a unique perspective and deserves an opportunity to be heard. We honor and celebrate our differences.
