We've gotten a perfect score on the SAT and graduated from top schools like Oxford, Edinburgh, Harvard, and Princeton. But please don't hold it against us! We've done things in the real world, too, like climbing Mt. Everest and sailing the Atlantic Ocean to winemaking, filmmaking for the 48 Hour Film Projects, studying cheese-making in Italy on a Fulbright, making videogames for Aerosmith, and playing with the Philadelphia Orchestra. In our spare time, we like to eat and drink, run marathons and compete in roller derby and dodgeball.
We believe building a strong engineering culture is the key to building a great company and product. Part of that vision is working with the best tools, many of which are open source.
