What We Do

Our Vision

We see a future where it's easy to bring a great idea into the world using the internet, while respecting data security and privacy. The next generation of businesses will design security and privacy into their operating processes. If every business is going to be a software business, every business will need to be a security business.

We're working to make information security a core competency of every startup. We envision a world in which startups have access to great information security, are empowered to focus on their business instead of on compliance, can scale faster and more efficiently, and are confident that they're creating quality products.

Done is Better than Perfect

“The perfect is the enemy of the good.” ― Voltaire

We identify the core value of a project and ship the simple thing first. We’re willing to set a goal we’re not sure of because it inspires us to act in the spirit of learning, reflect on the results, and gather valuable data about what to try next. We fail often and early in pursuit of experimentation and risk-taking on novel ideas.

We value and respect teaching as the best way to learn, and make time to share information openly. We are a team of learners with a growth mindset: We talk about improving constantly and challenge each other to grow.

Be Hard on Problems, Not People

“Feedback comes from a place of positive intent.” — Michael Terrell

We discuss our questions and concerns openly as a group. We practice giving effective feedback, with the intent of helping each other be more successful. When we give feedback, we make each other feel big, not small.

We work to create an environment where it feels completely safe to ask for help and take a risk — where we feel valued for our contributions and accepted for who we are. We don’t attribute mistakes or unexpected outcomes to human error: We view them as a starting point for an inquiry, not the end. We can resolve difficult issues while supporting each other.

Ask Why

“Is the juice worth the squeeze?” — Source Unknown

We seek to understand before we act. We question our assumptions and surface differences of opinion, in order to discover gaps in our plans and make changes accordingly.

By asking “Why?”, we cultivate focus and create leverage: We pick the right things to work on and maximize the impact of our efforts. By asking “Why?”, we make space for the creative tension between optimism and skepticism, and think strategically about what and how we build.
