No blame culture
"All of us make mistakes and we try to ensure that we learn from that and do not repeat the same mistake in the future. Each major incident is addressed in the postmortem to improve the process.

Fail fast, learn fast
"When delivering a new business feature, we implement the MVP version in the first place to prove the business case. Afterward, we aim for a proper technical solution. We try to avoid nitpicking."

"Our aim is to provide you with enough context so that you can act independently. Most of our workload is organized in Jira but you aren’t limited to strictly defined tasks. We encourage you to come up with your own solution to the problems and will support you in cross team cooperation. We don’t like micromanagement."

No question is stupid
"We promote a safe environment within the team to make sure you will feel comfortable to ask any questions or raise any concerns since day 1."

Help other teammates
"As no one is a specialist for all directions, we believe that knowledge sharing is the key to team’s success. We encourage you to ask questions and we support you to pass technical knowledge and domain knowledge on more junior team members. We help each other if needed."
