In 2015, inspired by the challenges he saw while serving overseas, former Navy SEAL Brandon Tseng returned home from his last deployment with an audacious goal: to employ artificial intelligence to protect service members and civilians.
Brandon had witnessed firsthand how challenging missions could become due to a lack of information and intelligence. He theorized that the application of artificial intelligence could be revolutionary in clearing the fog of war -- and in making a difference in protecting the lives of the service members he served alongside and the civilians he encountered within conflict zones.
In pursuit of our mission, we embrace these core values:
Do what honor dictates. Live as a servant leader. Pursue excellence.
We live with uncompromising honesty and integrity. We avoid even the appearance of improper behavior.
We have the courage to address challenges directly and never behind the backs of teammates. We speak up when we disagree. We provide feedback that is clear, direct, and timely.
We strive to be the best in the world at our respective crafts. We develop self-awareness and relentlessly improve through self-study, practice, the guidance of teammates, and our sheer force of will.
Delight Our Customers
We develop empathy for our customers and the circumstances they face. We earn customer trust and never take it for granted.
Put the Team First
We are one team committed to the common mission. We place the success of the team ahead of our individual success.
We treat our teammates with kindness, respect, and even love. Even in moments where results are subpar or competence is in question, we trust that they operate with good hearts and the best intentions.
We have the passion and perseverance to meet our goals. We work tirelessly to achieve lofty objectives.
We do not seek to merely win but win so dominantly that competitors fear our capabilities. We demonstrate the courage, confidence, and capacity to pursue and achieve game-changing objectives that others regard as improbable or even impossible.
Act With Kindness
We treat people with kindness and respect in our words and actions. We know that achievement of extraordinary success need not come at the expense of being a good person.
Be Rigorous & Go Fast
We approach problems with a clear understanding of objectives, context, and detail. We dive deep into issues and roll up our sleeves to ensure the team succeeds.
We make work fun because life is short, and we spend most of our lives at work. We are enthusiastic about our successes and our opportunities to solve complex problems.
Be a Good Steward of Resources
Resources are precious, so we find creative and logical ways to do more with less. We recognize that anyone can change the world with unlimited time and resources, and only great teams can do it within practical limits.
We keep ourselves and our teams at peak performance by carefully managing our mental, physical and spiritual health.
