- End users first. You keep the end users first in your work but understand that different voices within our business contribute to priorities. You work to solve our unique problems in a way that’s best for the people using the product.
- Curious. You never forget there are people at the other end of the screen using our products. You love observing people and their habits. Empathy is one of your favorite words.
