Culture is King

According to Brian Kopko, Vice President of Engineering at Class Valuation, cultural alignment is one of the main reasons Tiempo and Class Valuation have worked so well together. “Culture is everything,” he stated. “There is no point in building engineering teams if you don’t have a strong culture and Tiempo aligns with us on the most important attributes of trust, honesty, integrity and transparency.” Class Valuation values culture over technical skills. “Strong culture allows you to overcome daily adversity that’s a natural part of software development, like time constraints, complexity and diametrically opposed requirements.”
