Who Are We?

Boardingware is a global team working towards a common mission.
These are the values that unite us and influence the way we work together.

1. Simplicity beats complexity
We believe in refining everything into it’s simplest form. This includes our communication, products, systems and processes.

2. If in doubt, communicate
Communication is the foundation to teamwork. Never question whether or not you need to tell a teammate about new decisions. Clear and concise communication is important for massive productivity.

3. Teamwork before self
In the pursuit of our personal goals, we must be mindful of how our actions impact the team as a whole. We should always put the interests of our team first.

4. Continuous improvement
Continuous improvement is deep-rooted in our culture. It can seem like an attitude of constant dissatisfaction, which is the foundations for striving for greatness.

5. Customer Centric
We don’t worry about what our competitors are doing. We are aware of them, but we never look to them for what we should do next. Instead, we listen to our customers and strive to understand them better than anyone. They are the ones that pay us, not our competitors.
