Rocketplace Values

Measure Twice, Cut Once.
We have a passion for excellence and craftsmanship and understand that great skill often takes a lifetime to hone. We push ourselves to move fast but we have a long road ahead. We want to be thoughtful, minimize needless mistakes, and break as few things as possible.

Defy Gravity.
Reaching escape velocity is hard and speed matters. It takes great teamwork, a lot of planning, resources, belief, and even then you are going to have more than one unanticipated explosion along the way. People will tell us it can’t be done or that it is easier to stay on the ground but we must have the resilience to persevere.

Bring ‘em home.
We set very high standards in pursuit of our mission but we must never lose sight of what is important: our customers, our values, and our fellow teammates. To build something great we must build it together, challenge each other along the way, and commit to getting the job done.

Be a pioneer.
We believe in a future that looks different to how it looks today and to reach different we need to think differently. We must have the mindset to learn and the confidence, creativity, passion and perseverance to build the future we want in the world.

Think Intergalactic.
This journey will be long and we can not afford to think small. We must think many, many steps ahead while always looking to build a strong foundation today. We must build for decades, not dollars and never sacrifice long-term value for short-term results.

Quis serves ipsos servus (who serves the servant).
We must be constant in our customer focus. Our customers are in the business of serving their clients, and our mission is to earn their trust and serve them in every way that we can.
