We feel the same way about our team – that they should come from all walks of life and represent all possible backgrounds. Inclusion is one of our most core company values. It only makes sense – the more diverse we are, the better we can serve our diverse audience.

As a team we anchor our everyday behaviour around key values that we co-created together:

  1. Considerate – we are a kind, empathetic team
  2. Sustainable – a start-up is a marathon not a sprint
  3. Communicative – key with a distributed team
  4. Impactful – following skritswap’s mission & vision to make the world more equitable
