      COMPANY POLICIES

      1. Be inquisitive – always look to learn, grow, and challenge - and always ask questions and make suggestions;

      2. No excuses – don’t try to mask your mistakes and failures – embrace them and learn from them;

      3. Treat others with respect – understand that a strong team is a diverse one;

      4. Constantly re-evaluate your role – what is the wider scope you’re working in –what is the wider goal you’re trying to reach, and how do you achieve that;

      5. Seek out smart – try to surround yourself with people who know things you don’t – whether in the existing team, in mentors, or through new hires;

      6. Help out and be nice – whether that’s up-skilling a colleague before their big presentation, or just washing up the glasses after team drinks: always be looking to help out others;

      7. Enjoy your job – you’ll be here a lot, you’ll be the one dictating your commitment – if you’re not having fun, then find the solution: are you no longer happy here (fail fast) or can we pivot internally to fulfill your role.
