All Hands

Our monthly All Hands meeting is a chance for CEO Jason Guss to update the team on where we won that month, where we fell short, our progress on OKRs, and what’s coming next. Different department heads also present, all team members can join the conversation, and all questions are answered.

Owning Success

Team Octane is passionate, collaborative, empathetic, and we thrive on helping each other learn and grow. We believe in accountability and ownership of work, and appreciation of both successes and failures. We achieve success through constant reflection and iteration.

Embracing Change

When our offices closed due to the pandemic, we seamlessly transitioned to be 100% remote. When we’re ready to get back in the office, as early as September 2021, we expect it to go just as smoothly. Our team comes first, pandemic or not, and we’re supported by flexibility, respect, and community.

"At Octane, my voice is heard. There are projects that energize me. From day one, I felt comfortable volunteering ideas and sharing my expertise. After a few weeks, I was already having impact and defining projects. You’re much closer to the decision making process."
