Working at Bumped
Here at Bumped, we believe in a culture of leadership. That means that all of our employees...
Own It: Leaders own results—whether things go right or wrong. We hold ourselves and each other accountable, we learn from our mistakes, we don't point fingers.
Get the Big Picture: Always seek to understand what's happening beneath the surface—from how we make company decisions to how your team prioritizes projects. Ask questions when you don't understand directives or decisions. It's much easier to believe in a mission when you fully understand it, as opposed to doing so simply because it was a directive.
Assess Your Alignment: Make sure everything you do — on an org, team, or project-level — is aligned with our overarching company goals and values. We must move in the same direction, or nothing will get done.
Be Advanced Humans: We value diversity, inclusivity, and humility. We're working hard to do something big, and we never lose sight of ethics and respect for all.
