We call it the California Standard.

Our Values
Capture Opportunity

We believe that our response to opportunity today, shapes the opportunities that will be laid before us tomorrow. Every day is filled with chances to listen and build trust, learn new things and expand our expertise, demonstrate excellence, and lay the groundwork for future opportunities.

Forge Connections

Our customers are not dependent on us—we are dependent on them and they are the purpose of our work. Our customers are our biggest advocates, and when we make the effort to create strong personal connections based on trust, transparency, and collective success we give them something to come back to, and something to talk about.

Constant Progress

Progress is not automatic—it is intentional; the plans we make today become the progress we will realize tomorrow. We are strongly biased towards action that makes us better engineers, better team members, and ultimately leads to a better life.

Seek Balance

We’re a team of cyclists, surfers, coaches, beer drinkers, fun lovers, and good hearted people who place great importance on a work/life balance that tips to the life side of the scale—flexibility is really important to us and we know that we do our best work when the balance is right.

Value Team

We value specialists over generalists, and team-work over showmanship. We know that none of us is as smart as all of us and when it comes to doing our best work it can only happen when we are all pulling in the same direction.

Got talent?

We always love hearing from great minds in fields relevant to what we do. If you’re one of those, we invite you to dig deeper.
