Our Values and Culture
We're really driven to create something truly exciting and innovative and we want to have fun along the way so our values are at the heart of what we do!
Our values came from within the business so we're excited to shout them from the rooftops!
Real Humans: In the words of Nirvana, come as you are (and come as you aren’t). We are just like you, all wonderful in our own unique way.
Left Field: We like to form ideas, then collaborate to spin them around. We believe this creates true innovation and helps us build ace stuff that our customers and users will love.
Hustle: Quite simply, we don’t mess about, we get things done around here and we do them well.
Joy: Remember that excitable buzzy feeling on Christmas morning when you ran downstairs to open your presents? We believe humans deserve to have this level child like joy in their lives and we strive to make sure everyone in touch with the edays journey feels this.
Tribe: You will see us coming, we move as one and we stick together through all the twists and turns that arise.
