What do we value (the Kraftshala Kode):

Like all good companies, we value integrity, excellence, respect, inclusion, and collaboration. Our team’s distinctiveness comes from the following:

  • We seek a user centric mindset. People who start with the user and work backward, and take every opportunity to add value to their customers/ partners fit right in. 
  • We value problem solving skills. We look at problems objectively, solve for root causes, make decisions for long term good instead of short term gain, and don’t let processes get in the way of value addition.
  • We look for learning agility. We are a team of learners who like to observe, reflect, read, speak with experts, and seek feedback to be better today than we were yesterday. 
  • We admire people with ambition & courage to take on large goals. We are seeking to build a team of self-starters who demonstrate high ownership. 
  • We aim for consistency and reliability and expect the same from others. Predictability makes everyone’s life a lot smoother. 
  • We like people who are real, open and direct in communication, while still being empathetic. 
  • We are practical optimists. Our team strongly believes in a better future and takes joy and pride in the fact that we are playing our part to make that future a reality.
