Our Culture


Everyone is a CEO! 


We don't want to manage people. Everyone manages themselves and acts as a CEO of the function or position they hold


Everyone is a Hustler!

Thinking about growth is a shared responsibility. Ideas can come from anyone.

Since we are the users of our product, we know the exact pain points and understand fellow software developers really well.

Going forward we are going to heavily rely on product-led growth. This means our user acquisition, conversion, and retention are all driven primarily by our product. 

This can happen only if everyone is a hustler, and contributes to the product.
