Seek and shared knowledge
Learn and grow together. Great minds think differently.

When we share what we know and lift others as we rise, we build a culture of knowledge that makes us all a little bit better. Be transparent: share the good and the bad, and offer insight into decision-making processes. Take risks and experiment; every setback is a learning experience. Seek diverse views for better outcomes—embrace diverse experiences, backgrounds, and skill sets to make us stronger and smarter. Nothing revolutionary was ever created in an echo chamber.

Create advocates
Every contribution is a customer experience. Empower customers.

Every person here has a hand in making Guru great: a place where people want to work and a best-in-class product that people love to use. Every interaction with our brand should create ambassadors. We spend our energy nurturing our users to turn them into customers and finally into our biggest advocates.

Don’t take yourself too seriously
Have a curious mind. Openness over ego.

Ask questions and seek to understand the world and the people around you. Lead with empathy and listen. Being open to new ideas that move us forward is more important than getting your way. Difficult things will happen. It’s how we respond to them—with openness, curiosity, and the desire to do better—that helps us grow.

Embrace the journey
Be intentional. Have a marathon mindset.

Building great things takes endurance— it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Act with urgency (a marathon is still a race, after all). Charting a course is key to solving problems thoughtfully, but stay flexible and ready to find a new route to the finish line. Be resilient, and rest when you need to. And remember: sometimes the best ideas happen when you’re having fun along the way. (Did we knock it out of the park with this sports metaphor?)

Give and receive graciously
Give to yourself, your colleagues, and your community.

A cycle of giving starts with one person. Care for yourself so you can show up for others. Build trust through giving thoughtful, candid, and kind feedback. Be an open and curious recipient of feedback and get comfortable with the learning process. Dedicate your time and energy to improving the world around you. Ask for help when you need it, give generously to your colleagues, and give first to your community.

I'm really appreciating the flexibility to work wherever. Especially watching friends reluctantly having to go back to work. I feel lucky that I can go into the office when I want to -- and it's cool that I do actually want to!
