Working at TopQuadrant is best exemplified by our values:

  • Possibility (aka the “Why Not” mentality): We embrace new ideas and ways of thinking because we never let an opportunity to “level up” pass us by. Piloting and testing good ideas will keep us learning. In general, moving faster is better.
  • Humility (aka “Gate check your baggage”): Best ideas win. We check our assumptions and our egos at the door. Titles, the “the way things were,” or “should have been” just don’t matter. The best ideas focus on the greater good. When in doubt, customers (and customer value) knows best.
  • Ownership: Finish lines matter. We expect ourselves and each other to step up and own processes and outcomes to completion. We give credit, let decision makers decide, ask for and give feedback, point fingers inward first, examine every cost, and never make excuses because that’s what makes great teams great.
  • Partnership: Customers value us because we provide them with superpowers they’ve never had. We do not simply provide a product or service, we engage as equal partners in their solution. We influence the outcome and express our expertise and opinions unapologetically. And when we succeed, we share in the value we deliver because we value our time, our technology, and ourselves.
  • Teamwork:  Be the person you’d want to work with. Build each other up.
