What values does your team share?

We are all born curious and at Deci we value creative thinkers. People who are not afraid to ask difficult questions. We believe that there must be a better and simpler way to empower people to make decisions. Deci represents that ambition as a team; striving to challenge the traditional way of thinking and making sense of data.

That’s our shared goal and motivation. Our objective is not to beat the competition. We look up to our competitors as a source of learning, and a way to challenge ourselves. Without them we wouldn’t be able to set such ambitious goals, or keep track of our own development. We believe our small team can create a product that transforms how people interact with numbers forever. Our goal is to do the greatest thing possible.

We take pride in being transparent and open, putting our users at the center of our work and aspiring to build Deci together with our community. We believe that transparency and trust is what makes great teams work. We encourage self-improvement and criticism allowing us to improve the team, the company and the product. We believe this helps us build better team character and integrity.

At Deci no team member is too big for any task. We get the job done and we clean after ourselves. No one needs to look after Deci. At Deci we look after ourselves.

We believe that we are as good as our teams' unity. We get the basics right, and we build on those basics.

We believe in an inclusive world. We aren't interested in academic results or name-dropping resumes. In fact we don't want your resume at all. Character trumps talent. We love self-taught, immigrants, misfits, adventurers, athletes, nerds, makers, explorers and dreamers.

What is your team mission?

We want to change the world's relationship with numbers by providing an interactive document that unlocks people's ability to derive context from the world’s data and information.

What type of music does your team listen to?

Share an interesting side project from a team member

Fábio Santos, our Programming Language Engineer is also the only maintainer for terser. Many, many years ago, he was working on a game using new JavaScript features, and wanted to minify his code, so he made some innocent pull requests to UglifyJS. This became its own branch, was published as uglify-es on NPM, and was worked on and maintained by other people.

Fast forward to 2018, and uglify-es became unmaintained. People suggesteded that he forked the project so that people could continue to minify the JavaScript of today.

And so, the Terser project was born.

What is the product you’re building?

At Decipad, we’re making data analysis accessible and mainstream for everyone. Decipad is a low-code notebook to gather information, build models in minutes and bring data-driven ideas to life. No coding experience required.

What problem are you solving?

We started Decipad with the idea that you shouldn't need to be an analyst or programmer to make sense of the world's information.

Today, individuals and small businesses have access to the kind of data and information that only a few years ago would have been limited to large corporations. Yet, deriving insights from data and collaborating with numbers continues to be a seemingly impossible challenge.

Data Programming tools are powerful, but the barrier to entry is too high. They require knowledge of complex programming languages like python and SQL. Spreadsheets are more accessible, but they come with inherent problems. They are error prone, hard to scale and were not built for collaboration.

We're removing barriers between tools for programmers and tools for everyone else to help more people participate in an increasingly data-rich world.
