  • Everybody sweeps. No task is ever too small for our team. We sweat the details and are not afraid to get our hands dirty.  
  • We embrace debate. There are no seats at the table at DRL because there is no table. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas. We embrace the idea that debate is healthy and knowing that an impassioned discourse leads to our best results. 
  • We stay hungry. We look for the hardest challenges and tasks and once we master them, we look for the next one. We celebrate our victories and are always excited for tomorrow knowing “good enough” is never really “good enough.”
