Our core values :
We are data-driven problem solvers.
We don't make assumptions on a solution when working to solve a problem, whether that be a bug or a problem our customer or business is dealing with.
We take the time to consider all possibilities and validate our approach using data, which can take the form of rigorous technical analysis, customer interviews, or even manually reviewing every incident.
We believe that by taking the time to consider all possibilities, we end up doing the right thing more often than not.
We are intensely focused on the things that matter.
We believe that working hard at the burning problems and big opportunities in our business creates longer term value for our customers than working on a variety of things.
We understand that there are many ways we can add value but only a few things we can do at any time that will meaningfully impact our service in the long run.
We work with urgency on the things that matter, because they matter. We are willing to cancel the things that don't matter, as we see the value of our limited time to make progress on the things that do.
We strive to deliver insanely great customer experiences.
We focus on delivering a quality of service to our customers that is so insanely great that a customer is blown away every time they interact with us.
While we recognize, it's impossible for us to make a perfect product as an early stage company, we make up for that through extreme attentiveness to the needs of our customers.
We say "yes, and" not "no" to our customers needs and always put them first. We believe that we can scale insanely great experiences and don't worry about how scalable what we do to please our customers today is.
We pride ourselves in being radically resourceful and resource efficient.
We do not fear lacking the expertise, the data, or the team to take on a challenge. We are confident in our abilities to tackle the challenges that come our way.
We understand that as a startup resources are scarce, which drives us to be efficient with our team members' time and resourceful in our own time when approaching challenges.
We make up for lacking resources, by being clever in how we approach the challenges we face and are efficient by getting to the essence of what's necessary.
We do not make excuses, we find solutions.
We learn from taking risks.
We know that startups are inherently risky and understand that doing something risky means taking risks. We don't fear rejection or defeat, we fear not learning.
This drive pushes us to take risks and learn from our mistakes. We would rather ship early and often, whether that be features or enhancements to our services.
We understand through that risk comes reward the reward of earlier success, learning from invalidation, or better data to iterate on improvements.

We have a seasoned founding team that understands the importance of our employees to our company's success. As such, Awning offers competitive pay and benefits, including generous equity.
Our benefits and perks include :
Our team celebrates our diverse backgrounds. We believe that being open about who we are and what we do allows us to be better.
