Core Values

We have a dozen aspirational values that we talk about frequently at Source Allies. They are derived from simply observing the qualities we admire in our fellow teammates. They can be distilled into these four core values:

Core Values: Leader

BE A LEADER

Leadership is situational and inspirational. From day one, we can take the lead when we have the knowledge and vantage point to influence the best decision. Our best leaders are good teammates: inspiring us, offering feedback & supporting each other.

Core Values: Expert

BE AN EXPERT

Expertise goes beyond title. We believe that the pursuit of mastering a craft is a lifelong journey. Consistently practicing and stretching beyond your comfort zone will ultimately outperform natural-born talent. It is about drive, commitment, and passion.

Core Values: Teacher

BE A TEACHER

Teachers share their knowledge and value learning from others. Our collaborative environment enables clear communication and encourages giving & receiving peer feedback. When we teach, both parties’ abilities and understanding grows in tandem.

Core Values: Owner

BE AN OWNER

Ownership is a mindset that is empowering and rewarding; it is the key to our success. We treat every product we build as if it were our own and balance short-term wins with long-term success. Our self-directed culture allows our teams to take responsibility for our decisions, our teams, and our future.

Slippers

Powered by People…
in Slippers!

Clients tell us we act like owners, not renters. Our slippers symbolize our Ownership Mentality.

Renters wear shoes at home, but an owner takes them off as they come through the door. We wear slippers in the office for the same reason. Source Allies feels like home, and we treat our projects as if they’re our own – looking out for clients for the long term.

We’ve always been the go-to company for highly experienced, technical folks who are looked up to as experts within the IT community. Our team is also known for their humble, down-to-earth attitude. All of these aspects can be summarized within our tagline: Powered by People…In Slippers.

Teammate Spotlight - 2018 Black Belt Recognition

There are a lot of characteristics within martial arts that translate to being a talented software developer. Source Allies’ founder, Matt Vincent, discovered this first hand as he embarked on his journey to earn a Black Belt in Taekwondo.

Matt noticed that the Black Belts were always practicing, humble, courteous, and eager to teach others. He realized that these characteristics relate directly to being an excellent software consultant. As a result, the Source Allies Black Belt Awards were created.

Source Allies encourages our peers to carry a Black Belt mindset and model these characteristics. Each year the award is presented to teammates who are recognized by their peers for regularly practicing their craft, teaching others, and humbly inspiring those around them. These Black Belts will be joining our previous recipients: Akrem Saed, Travis Klotz and Neil Bode.
