Embrace & drive change: Don’t accept something because it is like it is. Break through the status quo, innovate and reinvent your job and yourself constantly. In other words: embrace change.

Take ownership: Take responsibility for your work, your customers, your colleagues… your mistakes. In other words: at Starred you don’t ‘rent’ your job, you ‘own’ your job.

Work smarter: Sometimes there’s an alternative to working harder: working smarter. Which tools could you deploy? Who could help you out? Which partnership could speed you up? We’re constantly looking for ways in which we can work smarter.

Building together: Finally, you’re not alone. Without marketing there would be no leads, without the development team there would be no product, without customer happiness there would be no happy customers, and without sales there would be no new customers. We’re building Starred together.
