Our Team’s Core Values

Our customer is the hero of our story

The purpose of our business is to make our customers successful. We strive for a deep understanding of our customer’s business problem and what success looks like from their point of view by listening with deep humility. Our job doesn’t end when we sell them a product – it begins at that point. We will do everything in our power to help them realize value from our product. We will find our own success through this mindset and derive joy from delighting customers.

We aim high and are nimble in how we get there

We set lofty goals based on where we aspire to be and then stretch our thinking to achieve them. We derive joy from bringing these ideas to life by using our creativity and autonomy to solve hard problems. We believe that excellence is defined by building early momentum while learning and adapting rapidly at each step of the journey. Using this nimble approach, we will derive the fundamentals that are necessary to design for scale.

Our success relies on continuous learning

We love to learn, create and build. We experience a state of Flow when engaged in these pursuits while gaining mastery over our craft. We are fearless in jumping into new areas and learning. We are trailblazers and take risks, and accept that failure is part of the learning process. We bring a beginners mind-set to every project and our goal is to discover our unique approach to solving problems through rapid iterative experimentation and learning.

We respect, support, and collaborate with each other

We believe that building a great and enduring business is a team sport. We believe that the output from a team with diverse and different views and backgrounds is far greater than possible from any individual. We succeed as a team by respecting each other with open minds and compassion while leveraging each other’s strengths. We derive joy from the magical energy unleashed from working for a cause bigger than our ego and from a sense of deep connection with teammates.

“ Tigera’s greatest asset is its people. They’re awesome – I can rely on them to do a great job and to support and help me to do a great job too. When inevitably mistakes occur, people own them, and the team learns from them, taking action to make that mistake harder to hit next time.
