Product Principle (n.) – an accepted rule of action or conduct to guide the product process.
Our product principles are the glue that holds our products together. They apply to the way we approach product design and engineering and help guide individual and team decision making.
Ask for confirmation not creation
Never present a blank slate; do the heavy lifting and present a complete solution to the problem at hand.
Reduce the number of decisions someone has to make in order to complete a task.
Be an informed advisor.
Progress over perfection
Always keep iterating on products and features
Try new things, make mistakes, and learn from them.
“Fail fast" mentality/ "just do it"
Communicate to understand, not to impress. Talk like a human
Ask lots of questions and listen to the people behind the problems before thinking about solutions
Be proactive, not passive
