Top talent

To succeed, we must demand excellence from each other. Each person at the company must seek to raise the average on the team. We can work together to actively coach and develop our abilities.

Lead by example

Each of us possess distinctive leadership styles, which we embrace utilizing. Each of us strive to guide others through behavior instead of words. We approach each other with both compassion and candor.

First principles thinking

Actively question every assumption you think you know about a given problem or scenario, and open yourself up to new insights and solutions. This is only achievable through humility – sometimes the right answer is “I don’t know, but I will learn.”

Change is constant

Umbra’s innovations are catalysts for change. The technology will change, the organization will adapt, and the mission will change. We don’t fixate on a single aspect of the company in the present. There is unlimited potential for growth for those who learn, improvise, adapt and overcome.

No risk, no reward

By conceiving and building game-changing products, we are shaping the future of our industry. We take bets on big ideas, while recognizing that the pursuit of perfection requires constant adjustment and iteration.

Stay humble

We’re all human here. We work as a team and celebrate each other’s wins. Underdogs welcome.
