We take our core values as a company seriously and aspire to level-up our Aquicorians in their careers and professional growth.

- See the forest in addition to the trees and approach development in a way that emphasizes real value for the organization and all its stakeholders

- Analyze data to uncover insights and find ways to share these with our customers in meaningful ways
- Bring to life the platform that allows our customers to collect millions of points of data from live sensors in commercial buildings and utilize the information in helpful ways
