Our values set us apart
Based in San Francisco, we work hard and play hard.
As a company, we don’t just tout our values, we live them.
Excellence and Personal GrowthOur customers depend on us to improve their quality. We're a crucial element in their fight to stay ahead of the competition. We commit to continuous learning, improving, and pushing the envelope—as individuals and as an organization. We set high standards, choose quality over quantity and build products that we are proud of. We are craftspeople. And so we embrace the freedom and imperative to explore, to be creative and provide innovative solutions that really make a difference for our customers.
IntegrityAt Sauce, integrity means consistency, alignment, truthfulness and straightforwardness in actions, motivations, and words. We think and act with integrity—for our team, our customers, our community, our company, and ourselves. We follow through on commitments. We hold positive intent for our customers and our industry. Our actions align around pushing them forward.
Truth and TransparencyWe believe in the power of truth and honesty to expose opportunity and to build trust. We muster the courage to share the most uncolored truth to maximize clarity, trust and learning. We uphold high standards for mutual transparency—within the company, as well as with customers and partners. We recognize that along with the freedom to express uncomfortable truths comes both the duty to do so and the willingness to listen deeply without defense.
It’s okay to be wrong; not okay to stay wrongIt’s better to do the right thing than to be right. When confronted with an uncomfortable truth, we listen and integrate. Mistakes are normal; they are opportunities for personal and company growth, for learning.
RespectWe see people as valuable human beings and their potential to grow as the way to enable creation. We celebrate our unique talents, and respect our differences. Our focus on truth and transparency carries with it the responsibility to treat everyone with respect. So we criticize actions, never the actor. We respect customers and competition in our actions and words. We bring an assumption of noble intent to all our interactions. We trust individuals to strike the work-life balance for themselves and the company.
