Our Team

As a team, we are passionate and fearless about new technology and the ways in which we can work together. We encourage valuing the truth of an idea more than whose idea it is, and we foster that exploration by beginning our sentences with please, ending with thank you, and starting with questions rather than jumping to conclusions. To learn more about how we work check out Our Story.
