What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful team members put their own needs behind the needs of their teammates. In practice, this often manifests as empowering, challenging and encouraging teammates to step outside their comfort zone. Team members who lead others to success are far more successful than those who work only to serve themselves.

We stop all client work and self-organize in teams centered around employee ideas for solving problems with emerging technologies.Many of these ideas have gone on to become tools that make our clients.
