Every team member is performing a critical role without which we couldn’t function. We trust those we work with will do as they say and reciprocate in kind. We build trust with honesty. We build trust with accountability. Above all, we we build trust with our actions.
Creating tools for others in an act of empathy. Each decision we make betrays our own bias and worldview. Each day we must attempt the impossible and try to see through the eyes of another. To understand how others view the world. To do this well we must broaden our understanding of others and seek diverse views from as wide a range of people as possible.
Building something amazing and simple is decidedly hard, and requires us to push to the edge of our abilities. It’s tempting to stay safe and comfortable with what we know, but pushing past that point and reaching for perfection is what makes Sift special. Diligence, persistence, and an unrelenting pursuit of improvement must drive us forward to the edge of our capabilities and beyond.
The way we work is just as important as what we do. We all have a responsibility to constantly improve not only what we do, but the way we do it. If we see a broken system, we fix it. If we find an amazing process, we replicate it. Work smart, and make work for those around us easier. In a web of good systems, small teams can do big things.
Seek to understand, not to be understood. By actively soliciting feedback from our colleagues and customers, we’re able to better ourselves and our work product. We strive to separate our personal self from our ideas as we are most interested in the concepts that will help us build the best product, not in being correct. Work to remove the ego. Listen first, then listen more.
