Captain's log, stardate d159.y38/AB

We're right now well into our fifth year running MarsBased. The company culture we shaped at the beginning is now shaping us.

Our principles are paramount to understanding our business. We believe that simpler is better, in giving the best conditions to work to increase productivity and happiness, in transparency with everyone and - most of all - in never compromising quality in whatever we do.

That's why we believe in taking #noshortcuts.
