Our family

We are a mixture of nerds, athletes, video gamers, strategists, musicians, chefs and lovers of life. We have more nationalities than team members. We are all from different walks of life but we share one thing in common:

We hate to feel like we are wasting our potential.
We like to measure ourselves against life.

Our culture

Our Culture
  • Learn

    Strive to continuously improve yourself and others around you.

  • Stubbornness

    Express and be ready to defend your ideas. Greatness is a result of constructive friction. Expect for your views to be challenged.

  • Science

    We are scientists. Assume you know nothing and you will likely be right.

  • Ownership

    Feel proud of your work but also own your mistakes. Optimums are reached by Trial and its cousin Error.

  • Nickname

    Real names are for time off.

  • No face time

    You either have work or you go home.
