Excerpt from the interview:

"We've always had a strong company culture, but early on, it was accidental. I hired engineers who I thought were great, and the engineering culture formed organically.

By now, we've had cultural miss-hires, some contentions and issues. These are signs of a bad culture.

So, we tried to distill the good parts of our culture down to a cultural document. The purpose was to be able to maintain the culture as we scale up."
