We care about our culture – a lot. While Guru’s people are highly effective, we are also open-minded, curious and always willing to own and learn from our mistakes. We are tolerant but we won’t knowingly hire jerks, no matter how skilled they are. We also prefer team players to lone heroes.

We also care a lot about our clients and other stakeholders, because we can only fulfil our mission if they are delighted with our output.
