# How we work
We have a simple philosophy – we live, breathe, and lead by 4 key values:
Courage - We undertake stark missions and bold strategic moves that most find crazy and we fight courageously to make them happen.
Pioneer - Traditional players in our industry offer extremely poor user experiences because it is full of assumptions used as excuses to remain in the past. We think from first principles and debunk myths, doing things in a way that has never been done before.
Polymath - Vauban is an end-to-end product, embedding engineering, legal, finance and design. But it's perfectly integrated. This is because we have no divisions: everyone has an interest in what the other is doing. If you often find yourself searching about various different stuff online to constantly learn new things, you are at home at Vauban.
110% - We work hard and smart. We believe in the concept of scale down to the smallest level, where adding a little more productivity at the micro-level can build towards extraordinary outcomes.
