Our values.

Quality matters. It’s not just product quality that we’re solving, we believe our calling is to deliver quality in everything we do. Our atypically high quality bar leads us to sweat every detail, for every customer. Below are the four core values that drive our words, actions, and people.

Deliver (the highest) value.

  • always start from the customer
  • quality over quantity – focus on what matters
  • be(come) an expert & master your craft
  • take ownership and get your hands dirty no matter your title
  • find the root of complex problems. then dig deeper to solve it
  • zig when others zag, innovation rarely comes from following norms

Remove friction.

  • remove friction for customers > your team > you (in that order)
  • don’t guess, talk to the customer, and often
  • take the extra step to untangle complexity
  • base success on execution, not insight identification
  • no constraints, no egos, silos, no sacred cows
  • 3-word policy on just about everything: use good judgment

Make it more scalable everyday.

  • solve for one, systemize for many. dVi/dN > 0
  • seek out patterns & codify them
  • grind to deliver elegant and scalable solutions
  • build for the long term. don’t hack it
  • move fast, iterate faster, share the learnings
  • make yourself scalable: live & work smarter (not just harder)

Be well, fair, transparent.

  • default to fairness & transparency
  • be generous with your time & invest in each other’s development
  • seek to first understand, then be understood
  • build trust and better outcomes by freely sharing with the team
  • make better decisions when everyone is heard
  • promote balance & wellbeing – it’s a marathon, not a sprint

Work with us.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys untangling complexity and solving challenging problems, you should consider joining Validere.
