Our values are our guideposts. They’re how we hire the right people. How we frame feedback to employees. How we make decisions. How we hold ourselves accountable.
Because we are committed to their authenticity, these values may not appeal to everyone. And that’s ok. But if they resonate with you, you’d be a good fit for our team.
Embrace Challenges with Confidence. The problems we solve, the markets we address, the opportunities we chase – they are not without complexity and their own fair share of roadblocks. But Attivians don’t back down from a challenge; we face it head on. With that, we achieve the impossible.
Execute Responsibly. We have commitments – to our customers, our investors, our partners, and each other. When Attivians sign up for goals, we achieve them, and are responsible about how we apply our resources to get there.
Simplify Customer Success. Even though the problems we address can be complex, the solution and the experience for the customer shouldn’t be. By looking at the world through our customers’ eyes, Attivians strive to make it simple for them to learn about us, engage with us, and succeed with us.
Win as a Team. No one person alone can make us achieve our goals, so we take teamwork seriously. Attivians pride ourselves on being communicative, respectful, and empathetic with our colleagues, and celebrate our collective wins.
Take Ownership. Every individual is critical to our success, and each Attivian commits to doing what they say they’re going to do. And when we see something that needs fixed, we fix it.
Adapt to Change. Change is expected and healthy, and Attivians are creative and courageous in the face of change. We never stop improving and know that it’s as much about the journey as the destination.
