We’re starters and doers. Our culture is characterized by:
An innate desire to get new products to market – quickly, often, ship code ship code ship code.
A skepticism of so-called “experts” – we listen, we learn, and we often end up doing it much better than they did.
Intellectual rigor around clarity; whether its a programming approach or an argument for a specific market microstructure, we think about problems analytically and objectively without the taint of vested interests.
Everyone is a thinker and a doer. No one only supervises here (well, we had someone like that once, but not for long).
Make the industry better; do the right thing even if it doesn’t seem like it will make us more money (in the end, we hope it might).
