Engineering Principles

You’ll probably hear us talk a lot about finding the “Better Way”: it’s our driving motivation in everything we do. Our set of engineering principles—collectively known as The Better Way—take the best practices we’ve cultivated over the years and distill them into actionable guidelines that empower teams to be successful. They’re summed up as five key directives:

  • Demonstrate Empathy
  • Take Tiny Steps
  • Limit Risk
  • Seek Evidence
  • Get Things Right Once
Engineering Principles Headspring

We use these as a foundation when creating training material, when coaching teammates, and when making decisions within our own work. As you navigate the hiring process, we want to help you get to know more about the way we work, and also give you a little foundation for your coding exercise. Learn more about these principles on our website:
