At Idyllic, we believe that everything that happens to a person is the result of the choices he/she makes. The choice to work hard. The choice to make amends. The choice to excel. The choice to become better and better at what we do, every single day.
In a nutshell, this is what Idyllic is about. We don’t force our people to do things. They choose to come in every single day and be the best possible version of themselves that they can possibly be. This is the energy we thrive on. This is our “Pursuit of Happyness”.
“You take the blue pill the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
Morpheus in The Matrix.
We believe in going down that rabbit hole. Sure, it’s simple to live the easy life, without ever challenging what you know because it does not seem smart to enter uncharted waters. But is being smart really the way to go? The smartest people in this world were once thought to be stupid. Stupid is a relative term, and that’s why we applaud people who dare to be stupid.
Much has been said about the left and right sides of the brain. The natural assumption would be that programmers are essentially left‐brained but we don’t exactly agree with that. Programming is about math. About logic. About strategy, analysis, accuracy and even familiarity. But great programming is also about creativity and imagination.
There isn’t just one right way to do things. There are many. And the path to discovering a better way to do a task is through creativity yes, that’s what the right brain is for.
At Idyllic, we encourage creativity. We don’t believe in rules. We believe in people standing up for what they believe in, even though it may not seem like the right way. Right and wrong is subjective. All that matters is being tolerant to a different point of view.
And here’s the tree in the center of our workspace. The tree is a constant reminder to always stay grounded and to not get carried away by whatever happens around us. Our humility has carried us this far and we hope it stays with us for the years to come.
