Our principles:

Positive thinking: we don't push, blame, or threaten. We do not believe that people are born lazy, and we need to scare them to death to do something.
Freedom: each of us chooses between Moscow, Bali, Argentina, Khabarovsk and so on.
Trust: our employees spend the company's money without demand and work whenever they want, but you need to work the agreed hours a week and, if possible, attend the daily standup at 14:00 Moscow time.
We do everything together: we call each other and poke around in the code together, and do not like long footcloths in delegation and writing reports.
