  • Respect Everyone. We are all human. We treat each other with respect and understanding. We help people bring their full selves to work (and stream) and take their full selves home with them.
  • Be Inclusive. To build the best products, communities, and teams possible, we need a wide range of perspectives in the room coming from a diverse group of people.
  • Empower Others. We help lift each other up, and make sure the team's success is our success. We look to help each other grow, succeed, thrive, and be happy.
