Enterprise Values

Quartz recruits talent for two salient attributes or qualities:

* Force of Ideas: At the center of Quartz work are the ideas within our writing. We believe that ideas - to the good and not - have consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, and giving voice to the latter.
* Spirit of Generosity: Quartz seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity - a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Quartz writing should be cut from the same cloth - critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.
