Cosmonauts embrace a pioneering spirit as we set out to change the world. We take pride in charting a new course into complexity, we get excited about moving into the unknown, and we never lose the self-belief that all pioneers have in the brighter future that awaits.
Cosmonauts don’t aim for perfection but we always aim for excellence. Whether writing code, modeling systems, serving clients, or helping our teammates, we strive to achieve the world-class performance worthy of a world-class company
Cosmonauts bring a sense of excitement and enthusiasm to everything we do. We embrace challenges, we ‘bite off more than we can chew’, we commit ourselves to big goals and celebrate when we meet them. At work or at play, Cosmonauts are always optimistic and enthusiastic
Cosmonauts work together and, because we do, we succeed together, too. We recognize that working as a tema means we can achieve more than we ever could as individuals. Our successes are sweeter because we achieve them together, and we never leave a Cosmonaut behind.
