Values

To bring our vision of the future into reality as soon as possible, we have developed a set of core values that will help us achieve this goal

Do deep tech

Ask yourself this: am I doing what others are afraid to do? Think differently, go against the grain, be brave. Combine different approaches, apply knowledge from different fields. If you already know how to do something, outsource it and manage the process. Free yourself from routine and go back to start — to tasks no one has done before.

Be honest

We are a deep-tech company with long-term plans. We don’t allow ourselves to be fake. Be honest with yourself and the world around you. Open up to new ideas and perspectives. When making a decision, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. If you make a mistake, say so. Be yourself.

Be a pro

We are professionals that are continuously gaining new knowledge and developing our emotional intelligence. Take on team members that know more than you. Learn on your own and help others do the same. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Give good feedback and learn to take criticism.

Do it WayRay style

We’re a startup in the best sense of the word. Act fast, experiment, improve, be bold with your ideas. Use the newest and simplest tools, apply the most advanced technologies. Take responsibility for the results. Treat the company’s resources with care, and not just the material ones: respect your coworkers’ time.

Be a team

If you need to make a decision, try to think it over with someone. People are our main asset. Listen to others’ opinions — that will help you avoid mistakes in the future. We don’t want any gossip or drama in the company: encourage one another.

Think

Ask yourself “what am I doing, how, and why?” Every time you’re faced with a decision, consider whether or not you have enough information to make it. Look at things objectively, and don’t let your convictions and stereotypes skew the information. Think about the consequences of your decisions.

We think of these six values as our guiding principles and fundamental beliefs that help us function together as a team and work toward our common goal.

We always keep in mind these values when making decisions, communicating with each other and the outside world, and hiring new team members.

WayRave & WayRavers

Another big part of our unique culture is our WayRaves — because whatever we do, we innovate and go beyond, so we ditched the old-school office parties in favor of raves. Imagine a team of people juggling multiple projects at once on a global scale. Well, that’s us. And after we’ve given it a hundred and ten percent, we all need a chance to let loose.

Today, the WayRave movement brings together our current team, partners, friends, former employees, potential hires, and media reps. We call on all scientists, nonconformists, perfectionists, and other -ists to join the WayRave movement and make the world what it should be, not what it is.

WayRavers are dreamers and doers passionate about science, technology, eager to solve non-routine problems, enthusiastic professionals with a growth mindset who believe in out-of-the-box solutions, and strive to contribute to international projects.
