At Blackpanda, we do not use the word "family" to describe our organization; we already have our own families and we understand that none of our colleagues are more important than them. What we are is a tribe, and we joined together because of our families — not because we needed another one.
Much like our ancestors 10,000 years ago, we choose to meet every day at the same cave and to hunt for food, scavenge for berries, and defend against wildebeests together because we know that we can provide more for our families united, rather than individually. We do not lie to each other that the tribe comes first — we know that our families come first, and we support each other to meet this endeavor to provide, protect, and nurture our respective families above all.
While we are proud to run hard alongside intelligent, capable, and motivated fellow Pandas, the tribe comes second to family.
This is what Tribe Culture means at Blackpanda. Come join us if you think you've got what it takes to be part of our tribe.
We want our people to actually like what they do. Knowing that life is more than work, we strongly encourage and support personal time and growth. We know we can do both. The quality of our minds determines the quality of our decisions – and the quality of our decisions determine the quality of our lives.
We don’t sugar coat bad news and setbacks. We also don’t quit at the first sign of risk; we face it head-on and assess how to mitigate. We will work with you in order to overcome obstacles or die trying.
The man at the top of the mountain didn’t get dropped off there, he climbed to the top. We strive to be the best in everything that we do, personally and professionally. We aren’t here to take part – we are here to take over.
We do what we say, we say what we do. That simple.
We are unconventional thinkers and aren't satisfied with the status quo or tradition. We are not afraid of technology or new ideas and approaches. We strive to improve every aspect of our work and aren’t afraid to walk through walls to get there.
We work together. Check your ego at the door. Ego is the fountainhead of man’s progress and innovation, but it is also the greatest source of man’s mental pain and suffering, particularly with one another. We work smarter, harder, and faster together, and are better because of it.
Timing beats speed, precision beats power, and leverage beats strength. We strive in every aspect of our work to minimize waste and to maximize production.
Humility forms the basis of honor, just as the low ground forms the foundation of a higher elevation. We listen, then we act, and then we listen again. We earn your respect like every day is Selection all over again.
