Who We Are

No big egos here. We collaborate, strive to make each other better, and if we say we’re doing something—we do it. We believe that every person here should feel comfortable giving honest feedback, and should always feel as though that feedback will be heard.

What We Stand For

Our passion is to make data more accessible and better governed for our customers.

Work together to win together

Arrow Icon

Teamwork (period!)
We win as a collective and work together to lift one another up.

Be curious and engaged

Arrow Icon

Curiosity is the desire to learn.
Engaged is a deep commitment to meet our goals.

Execute with urgency

Arrow Icon

Act in proportion to the urgency.
Clarify the scope.
Communicate the consequences.

Customer success is our success

Arrow Icon

Customer-first mentality: listen to our customers and go the extra mile.

Our success is measured by our customers’ success.

When our customers win using our product, we get a deeper engagement, commitment and we win their trust.

Be open, direct, and kind

Arrow Icon

Everyone wants to work with amazing peers – be open and direct with feedback and expectations, and do it in a kind way. Transparency, honesty are critical to ensure we are on the same page and calibrating with realistic perspectives.

We do that with kindness by being open to understanding the perspectives of others and countering alternate ideas or perspectives with patience, grace and kindness.

Practice radical candor with the intention of wanting to see your peer be their best and do their best.

Okera Engineering Culture

Leverage Uncertainty

Arrow Icon

We are building an innovative product in a space that is brand new. We are building a product unlike any others to solve problems for our customers that did not exist before. There is inherent uncertainty in this space. We don’t know what the market will look like in the future. As our customers begin to use our product we don’t know what new needs they will have as they learn to apply our product. We make product and technical decisions in the face of this uncertainty. We do not shy away from uncertainty. Our attitude towards uncertainty is our advantage. We commit boldly when we make a decision but we will change directions quickly as necessary.

Shorten Feedback Loops

Arrow Icon

To meet our customers’ needs faster we must iterate faster. To be faster we must learn faster. We are always looking for ways to test our ideas faster, to make changes faster, and to receive feedback faster.

Done Means Done

Arrow Icon

When we set out to build something we aren’t done until it’s completely done. We do not hedge our communication or leave unfinished work for others. We own our work by seeing it to the end.


Arrow Icon

We define quality standards, measure quality and have policies to ensure changes meet quality standards.


Arrow Icon

We choose to work in a way that exposes data about our work and processes to make measurements and quality improvements possible.

Build institutional knowledge

Arrow Icon

We choose to make what we’re doing comprehensible and knowable as quickly as possible. We seek ways to mentor each other.
