We're on a mission to enable intelligent machines to operate in harmony with their environment.

Our team strikes a balance between innovation and execution to not only dream up new solutions, but make them a reality for more people and more use cases.

WHAT WE VALUE

Respect

We respect our teammates, our work, and our mission, and strive to operate from a place of humility and integrity. We view feedback as a gift and never lose site of our bigger purpose and the impact we can have.

Ownership

We own our achievements and our failures, and remain committed — as individuals and as a company — to do our part in making the world better. We think big, take risks, and proactively step in to solve problems.

Simplicity + Clarity

We’re addressing complex problems — so we make products and solutions that are both elegant and simple. We bring clarity through clear communication and always keep the user experience in mind.
