  • You are a teammate. Being part of a team is a requirement for you. You appreciate working together, solving problems, and iterating to become something better. You like unblocking people, furthering their understanding, and accepting feedback professionally. You understand that delivering the best solution to the customer requires teamwork.

  • You are an owner. You take pride in your work, so you feel responsible for your slice of the codebase. You have high standards. You monitor your code and make sure that it is reliable and performant.
