The Company

Embodies Dover's Values

Intellectual Honesty: We are intellectually rigorous and reason from first-principle. We're very open to trying things out and running experiments. It's okay to be wrong — learning is valuable and helps us get to our ultimate goal. We make conclusions based on facts and data. We're honest with ourselves even if the conclusions are inconvenient or make us look bad.

Extreme Ownership: When we see a problem or an opportunity, we never think "that's not my job". We take responsibility for our results — both successes and failures. We drive projects to completion, even if it means doing unglamorous work or work that's outside of our job description. 

Performance Orientation: As a startup, we bias towards action and value output and results. Success is achieved by looking forward to what can be done to get the result, and taking the action to make it happen. To allow us to iterate fast, the team will need to be willing to work with an MVP to get things out the door.

Active Generosity: We make time for each other — whether it means getting to know someone personally or helping them up-level in a new area. We are enthusiastic about acknowledging and celebrating each other’s contributions. We are equally focused on personal growth. Resourceful people are attracted to this environment, where new ideas are met with curiosity, and it is OK if a first attempt is not successful.
