CULTURE
WORK HARD, PLAY HARD, & BE WELL
Like many startups, there is a seemingly bottomless amount of work to be done here at Soofa. We take pride in our ability to get sh*t done, but we also take pride in our ability to have fun. From Whiskey Wednesdays and Cake Fridays to apple-picking and ski trips, we strive to create an atmosphere of joy and energy at all times. We believe that productivity and fun are inclusive, and that you must be your best to give your best.

BE DIRECT & DON’T MAKE EXCUSES
The Soofa Fam isn’t afraid to confront problems head-on. We are direct with each other and unafraid of receiving feedback ourselves. Our German founders’ roots remind us it is better to be straightforward in communication. Our flat hierarchy means we keep each other informed about everything, cc is your friend.

We don’t play the blame game. We use monthly checklists to keep each other on track and out of the weeds.

BE UNORTHODOX & INCLUSIVE
Soofarians are truly innovative and inspiring. In our book, “mainstream” is a bad word. Our ability to think creatively as a team grounds us in the madness.

We constantly strive to be more conscious. The more we know, the better we can serve our communities.

BE PERSONAL, CARE, & GIVE BACK
Life is shaped and fueled by relationships. Soofarians care about each other. We listen, sympathize, and proactively offer our support. We make each client, supplier, and partner our friend.

Do you think of it serving as a tool that helps build a more livable community?By now you’ve likely envisioned a picture of gaudy neon signs along the Las Vegas strip, which is understa...
