Thinking about joining our team?
We offer opportunities to people who want to grow as professionals. We are organizationally structured through a system we term Mission-focused Management. Our company is operated by colleagues without titles or a hierarchy of designated authority. Each Colleague is expected to be the manager of their mission. Authority relative to other colleagues’ activities is lateral and based on their independent agreements. Each colleague’s Mission is their guiding principle of action, and respect, influence and success having to be built based on each colleague’s competency, integrity, effort, persistence and straight-forward persuasiveness. As we continue to grow, and while we communicate positions in commonly used terms, we intend to maintain a culture of individual responsibility and mission-focused management.
