Savy’s Core Values:
At Savy, we’re fast-paced, collaborative, and creative. Our team members are:
Detail-oriented | We leave no stone unturned. We are thorough, accurate, organized, and productive. We know that attention to detail can’t be rushed. We never send an unpolished project out the door.
Problem solvers | We view obstacles as opportunities to grow, learn, and flex our creativity. We are critical thinkers, outside-the-box creators, and skilled researchers. ”Impossible” isn’t in our vocabulary.
Process-oriented | We are never satisfied with the status quo. We don’t do things just because “that’s how they’ve always been done.” We’re perpetually creating new processes and finding ways to work more efficiently.
Driven | We are self-motivated and results-oriented. We don’t shy away from late nights or extra hours; we always do what it takes to get the job done.
Flexible | We can adjust on the fly, especially with a tight deadline. We are adaptable. We are skilled at finding the tools we need to get the job done (especially if it’s never been done before).
Team Players | We are skilled communicators. We are approachable, open, and collaborative. We believe in achieving more together as a team than as individuals.
