    Who We Are
    Over the years of working here in Silicon Valley, we’ve all been through our share of good and bad, cliched and invigorating experiences. From celebrating IPOs to sleeping under our desks, it’s fair to say we’ve seen the range of what this place can offer and what is left to be desired.

    The lessons we’ve taken from our combined experiences has led us to think about the kind of company we want to create together. These principles guide our work, who we hire, and our purpose in building.

    Why Telecom and Cable
    A big part that drives our purpose are our customers. There are thousands of companies around the world providing internet and mobile connectivity, powering the fabric of daily modern life for people around the world. While these companies are making tremendous strides connecting people from the most remote villages to budding city centers, why are they still stuck using software that was built in the 90s -- before the internet was even really a thing?

    Our goal is to create a 10x improvement across how these companies around the world spend their resources, time, and revenue opportunities. We’re doing this by creating software that takes advantage of the massive advancements in cloud infrastructure and computing power to solve real business problems like customer churn.

    What Drives Us
    Health
    Many of the stereotype on what it means to work at a startup means eating pizza at midnight and working on the weekends. We’ve lived the stereotype in our pasts and realized that’s the best way to land up both unhappy, unproductive and mentally exhausting. We realize that living a balanced life is not just ideal, but crucial, to our happiness as individuals and success as a company.

    Family, Friends, and Life
    Often times in the Silicon Valley chase, people lose their grasp on life going months on end before realizing that they haven’t spent meaningful time with their closest friends and family. Our core belief is that the whole reason for working at a startup is to enrich your life and share your successes with people you care about.

    Non-consensus thinking
    In a region dominated by a single industry, it is very easy to fall into a me-too mentality and follow the latest trend or tech celebrity. Ironically, this is the antithesis of what has made Silicon Valley such a magical place to begin with. We think for ourselves and are critical of the hype cycle.

    Problem-first mindset
    One of the hardest things about building a company is being able to define and articulate a real problem that exists in the world. What we’ve found over and over is that putting ourselves in our customer's shoes is the best way to make sure that we’re solving the right problems, rather than creating solutions for non-existent problems. On a day-to-day level, this means first identifying the problem at hand, before spending time and energy solving it.

    Planned growth
    Why run 100 miles an hour if you don’t know where you’re headed? Having a plan for customer, revenue, and employee growth allows us to have the time and space to think clearly about our goals, and ensure that we can achieve what we have ahead of us. We don’t want to always be racing towards the next deadline, with no room to course-correct and rebuild things. Allowing for those times in our plan allows us to bring the very best products to our customers without cutting corners on our lives or the quality of what we deliver.
