Build Your Own Playground

Threads Core Value #5

That’s what we did. We used to look at performance reviews as a formality that provided little, if any benefit. Then, one day, I learned that how we communicate in the review process is directly linked to our organization’s culture.

“Not really... but in the Midwest we do know the importance of values. With Threads, you acknowledge for the first time in the review process that how people work is just as important as what they accomplish.” - Sean Abbas
Our Core Values
Build as good as the idea

You are competing against people in your role at 300+ other software companies. The idea behind Threads will win every time, but only if you make sure your contribution is as good as the idea.

Build for longevity

All tides will eventually go out. At those moments, the quality of what we built, with the resources we had, will stand firmly on its own.

Build with simplicity

Embrace constraints. Have a limited budget. Work hard and force yourself to come up with the most simple solution for every problem.

Build genuine relationships

Have you ever thought about your last day at work? When you ask yourself “Was it worth it?” The things that will matter at that moment are the stories about people. The kinds of things we did for one another, the ways we helped others develop and grow as people.

Build your own playground

We hired you, the whole person, not just your skill set. Apply best practices to your work, but with your own style. Make a unique impact that only you can make and love what you do.
