When the purpose is clear and the direction is right, there's little that slows us down. Everyone rows in the same direction with zero overhead to build best-in-class product tools, so that others might use our tools to move fast.
At Statsig, we incorporate fun at work - whether it is rallying everyone to go on an impromptu hike, or huddling around for a game of League of Legends, we like our work to be lively and energetic.
At Statsig you will find people that work together and achieve great things. We believe in building a strong culture with a shared set of values which will outlast any product we build.
Our philosophy in hiring is to take the time to make sure we only hire team players - people that can enjoy a good debate and present their point of view but are also open to and willing to entertain others.
All our product teams - engineers, PMs, DS, Designers are 100% in-person in our office. Whether it is jamming on a new design, sharing a lunchtime chat, huddling together on pair programming, or just competing on Mariokart, we do it all together. This early in our journey nothing beats being together and solving hard problems.
While this might turn some people away, it's a trade-off we're making now. We might revisit this decision as we grow.
Nothing at Statsig is to be taken for granted. If you see something that doesn’t make sense, you should question it. And if there isn’t a logical and reasonable explanation for it, you are free to change it. “This is how it’s always been” is not a good reason for anything.
We value the outcome and impact that comes out of the effort. We intentionally don’t focus on the effort that goes into getting that outcome. At our daily stand-ups, we only talk about what was accomplished and never how much work was done.
We empower everyone to find a way, any way, to get to the intended destination. If there are roadblocks along the way, we find a workaround or bulldoze through the roadblock. Giving up is terrible, but you know what’s worse? Stagnating.
This one embodies who we are and who we are building Statsig for. We always want to make sure that the product we are shipping resonates with the builders of the world who are just like us. By focusing on the builders and making them more efficient we multiply the value we can create in this world.
