It’s not just what you do, it’s how you do it….. What we affectionately call Egencian’s.
To be an Egencian your personal traits are as important to us as your ability to deliver the role. You mirror the traits of a traveler, be smart, curious, open minded, agile and self-sufficient.
We live, eat, and breathe travel. We work hard and play hard and are never satisfied.
The ability to communicate, build relationships and influence decision makers is critical to success, and as a tech company data and an analytical approach counts.
We’re hungry for success and have an optimism to win and always deliver.
We’re always learning, always growing – as individuals, teams and as an organization. We celebrate success and learn when we sometimes fall short.
Our business is consistently evolving, we challenge the status quo and work with a “test and learn” mentality. The skill to not only drive this but adapt within is imperative.
Who are we?
We believe in being Different . We seek new ideas, different ways of thinking, diverse backgrounds and approaches, because averages can lie and sameness is dangerous. Because of this belief, our norms aren’t rules or universal at all corners of our company. But they are important to our identity and how we work together. Like our company, these norms will evolve.
We are Transparent . We communicate openly and honestly, at all levels, upwards, sideways and downwards. We surface difficult issues quickly, we act, we learn.
We organize for Speed . We seek to gather data as fast as possible, and move. Speed allows us to make mistakes and constantly improve.
We believe in the Scientific Method . Everyone’s ideas are equal in the face of hard data. We use data to guide but not define our actions.
We Lead Humbly . Our leaders serve their teams. None of us has all of the answers, but we are curious and we are always looking to learn. Though our leaders take their responsibilities to our business and their teams incredibly seriously, they never take themselves too seriously.
We act as OneTeam . We look to optimize for the greater good, not just our own, or even our own teams’ interests. We are actively interested in the success of others.
