Values for team members

This is what we tell new hires.  We figured that it would helpful to understand the company culture.

“As a new hire, how should I behave?”

  • Think about how to make: a better product, a happier customer, and your job more efficient
  • Make decisions based on the best expected value/risk adjusted ROI. Prioritize the tasks that will bring in the most money or have the biggest impact.
  • Be blunt when giving feedback. Don’t be afraid to hurt someone’s feelings.
  • Support your arguments with logic and evidence, don’t cite convention (e.g. everyone does it this way). Don’t argue with emotion or ego.
  • Don’t be afraid to critique your superior if you think they’re wrong or can be doing something better. If you think you can do a better job, then offer to take over their job.
  • Don’t follow stupid orders and don’t give up on good ideas. Argue with your superior until someone wins. If that fails, escalate to another superior.
  • Find ways to measure your performance (we will try to help you here).
  • Think from the customer’s perspective (How will the customer respond?)
  • Be solution oriented, not blame oriented (when there is a problem)
  • Minimize your reliance on other team members and their reliance on you (i.e. you want to minimize bottlenecks, increase autonomy. Don’t make rules that slow others down).
  • Don’t hide your weirdness
  • Be skeptical
  • Don’t ask for permission for small decisions
