  • Learn Fast – We don’t expect you to know everything – that’s why we believe in continuous development.
  • Ownership – with trust comes ownership. You will be encouraged to work on your own initiative (but will have support when you need it).
  • Support others – we are a team first. We expect to work in a safe environment. And we will respect you.
