Modularity Values

Our mission is to design collaborative business software that empowers Finance teams to lead their company from prioritization of objectives through to execution; aligning daily activities, purchases, and investment decisions with the company's strategic bets.

  • Be outcome-driven. Our core goal is building exceptional products. This means we often define our own responsibilities in order to focus on what's most important: getting the right things done.
  • Hear then teach customers. We seek their feedback from their action and inaction. Every interaction is an opportunity to take insights back to the team.
  • Take ownership for solving customer needs until they love it. No feature is complete until a customer uses it and demonstrates success with it. Every person who works on a feature is responsible for customer feedback.
  • Use your hammer. We walk around with our skills and fix problems we encounter. When we find problems we can quickly solve, we notify the team we are fixing them rather than ask for permission.
  • Document decisions and alternatives. We always document a second option to expand our thinking.
  • Create Straw Man Proposals. We do not wait for answers to questions. We rapidly propose a solution then share for feedback.
