Working at Ueno
Who we are, and who we want to be
A few things you should know about Ueno
We’re all in this together
We’re all different. We’re all equal. We build bridges, not walls. We have bad days. We make mistakes, and learn from them. It’s okay. We forgive ourselves and others.
We believe in radical honesty. We are open, vulnerable, no-bullshit, and straight to the point. We’re nice, but we’re not nice just to be nice. We say what we think, and think what we say.
Figure things out
Life is change, and we adapt. That’s how we grow. We say “Yes we can,” even if we’re not sure exactly how. We’ll figure it out. We want to look back and be amazed by how much we’ve grown.
Bring the chocolate
We want to exceed expectations. To give them more than they knew they wanted. Be the best at everything we do. Our standards are very high, and we work very hard to live up to them.
Nothing is someone else’s problem
We pick up the trash we didn’t put down. Not everything is about us, and we succeed when people around us succeed. We want to stay small, no matter how big we get.
Life is short, enjoy it
Life is short and kind of ridiculous. We’ll all be dead soon. So why not enjoy it? We are stupid in a good way. Foolish in a better way. We are here, we’re alive, and it’s pretty damn great.
Want to work in a beautiful office? Check. In a great city? Bingo. Want to go to a conference or take a course? You pick, we pay. Don’t like working with assholes? We don’t hire them. Want to eat pancakes in bed? That’s your own business.
Our bright and bustling office in Soma is a hotbed of creativity. We’re just down the street from Twitter, who for some reason still hasn’t asked us to work for them. What’s up with that?
