Our values

Our guiding principles

Our values are the guiding principles that we follow to manage our internal affairs as well as our relationship with our customers

  • We believe that it all starts with customers’ needs. We then work our way backward to how to meet that need.
  • We love getting vague customer feedback, which we translate into innovative, simple product features.
  • We work relentlessly to exceed our customer expectations – through exceptional products, solutions, and support.

  • We treat everyone with respect.
  • We share the credit when things go well.
  • We take responsibility when things go poorly.
  • We are open-minded and try to learn all the time.

  • We move fast.
  • Success is what we value, and we always avoid excuses.
  • We have a bias for action and take risks; We do so knowing that if we need to fail, best fail fast so we can return to success.
  • We expect strong judgment.
  • We take ownership; Nothing at Spot is someone else’s problem.

  • We value excellence.
  • We are masters of our craft.
  • We are hands-on and get our hands dirty.
  • We operate at all levels, no task is beneath us.
  • We never stop writing, reading, and learning.
  • We are data-driven, but we also question data and are skeptical.
  • We always work to find multiple ways to solve a problem.

  • We are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when we disagree.
  • We make a decision as our own and fully commit to it once it’s made.

  • We believe that necessity creates innovation. We accomplish more with less.
  • “One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out”.
  • We make it work, then we make it better.
  • We insist on high standards but are also pragmatic on how to get there.

  • We keep each other updated frequently.
  • We communicate directly, irrespective of hierarchy.
  • We escalate when things are not moving in the right direction.
