Our Cultural Values


(Thank God It’s Monday.)

We’re not just a team, we’re a community. We always look after each other. It’s awesome to be at work – ‘Thank God it’s Monday!’


Hungry like the fox.

Forever hunting, we’re never ones to stand still. Our thirst for knowledge is never satisfied.


If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing amazingly.

We are empowered to crank the dial; we take the lead by grabbing the journey by the horns. Second best is not in our vocabulary.


Get stuff done, have some fun.

We celebrate all wins and inject fun into everything that we do.


Challenge conformity, pursue discomfort.

We have an inspiring team led by a culture of innovation. Not bound by conformity, we encourage each other to find comfort in discomfort.

The smarter way to reach students.
