Amatis Target Culture
The 10 key behaviors that we believe make us successful and help us thrive
There are 10 key behaviors in our Amatis Target Culture that all team members are expected to embody, practice, and celebrate. This summer at Amatis, we’re learning about these principles by inviting guest speakers who embody them.
Amatis Target Culture Principles
No one is holding you back. If you think someone else is holding you back, check your premises. Unless someone told you to explicitly not do something, there is no reason you can’t do it.
We are builders. We solve problems and create solutions. Sometimes it’s code, sometimes it’s a piece of hardware, sometimes it’s a website, and sometimes it’s a survey. But we make things where things did not exist before.
Everyone else is working really hard. This company exists because we are working to make it exist. There is no coasting and there is no time for less than our best work.
Use questioning as a tool to communicate with empathy. If someone were asking you, how would you want to be asked?
Related to maximum effort, but different. Take pride in your work. Do what you do on purpose, and like you mean it.
Humility is the quality of being humble. No matter your role or level at Amatis or among others, practice humility and remember we’re all fellow humans.
This is an easier concept to agree with than to actually live. We tell it like we see it and hold each other accountable. If you aren’t getting feedback, seek it out (own it).
Have empathy for your peers, as you would have them do for you. Show your respect for your peers by doing great work.
We find a strong correlation between having fun and doing great work. When you’re not having fun, make sure you address it.
LEAVE EVERYTHING BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT
The earth, the kitchen, the lab, the crappy code someone handed you to fix, or the half-baked spec sheets. Every action has a reaction. Keep pushing things in the right direction.
