People First

Our culture, our commitment.

We are a fast-growing global tech team that aspires to create a high-performing, learning-oriented, and caring culture based on transparency and fairness; we have a lot of fun along the way.

Firstlighters (what we call ourselves) are passionate builders focused on the future of the OTT (over the top) video streaming space; enthusiastic about massive scale, agility, solving the hardest engineering problems, and driving user engagement to help our customers be successful. It’s the core of what we do, and what inspires us to keep dreaming, innovating and building with passion, every single day.

How We Work Together

Being a Firstlighter comes with commitment to these core collaboration principles (principles ≠ rules):

Stay Curious

Seek to understand, listen intently and face the facts, especially when inconvenient or unfamiliar. We believe in continuous improvement and learning. Failure recovery is more important than failure avoidance. Stay curious and proactively learn the end to end system beyond your immediate specialty. This is how we preserve our approach with small yet mighty teams.

Speak Up

Say what needs to be said with confidence, but remain humble and open to new information. We believe in servant leaderships; supervisors work for their team. Our autonomous and empowered to have impact and drive progress – we want you to create your own destiny.

Focus on Impact

Follow the strategic intent, weigh risks using best available information, and adopt a bias-to-action. Value delivered trumps the plan being fulfilled all day long. You should be comfortable focusing on objectives & outcomes (stepping out of your role if needed) as opposed to clinging to gates/roles/hand-offs/processes etc.

Be Supportive

We share earnest and timely feedback to help each other grow and bring about the best in us. Trust is #1. Community and collaboration win out over reporting lines and and org structure every time. Trust within, across, and outside of your respect team or group is going to help you get there and across the finish line.
