We founded Rune Labs to make clinical brain data useful, but we always remember that brains have owners. We value empathy, especially for individuals that struggle with brain disease and for the clinicians and researchers who provide them with much needed care. This human centric view extends to our own company as well, where we promote a high integrity culture.
We encourage individuals to bring their whole-selves to work in a respectful and constructive way. Be expressive, be curious, be yourself.
We invest the time and resources necessary to ensure no group is excluded or underrepresented. Diversity in people, experiences, backgrounds, and locations is not just a responsibility, it is a necessity.
We are committed to fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement of all. We are committed to eliminating malevolent behavior and redressing structural barriers through our policies, our culture and our personal ethics.
As a cross-functional team, transparency is a key aspect that scales Rune Labs, and we believe communicating the good, the bad, the ugly to the whole team will allow us to continuously grow, evolve, and be prepared for challenges.
We encourage individuals to share creative ideas and go into conversations with a solution-oriented mindset. We are in this together.
With a distributed workforce, it’s important to feel heard and acknowledged for the good work and progress we’ve made. We invest in getting to know one-another through company-wide all hands meetings, smaller group sessions, “Keep Rune Weird” company engagement initiatives, team on-sites, communication channels, and one-on-ones.
We value staying connected personally and professionally. At Rune Labs, sharing what we have been up to outside of work brings us closer together.
We strongly believe in taking care of oneself. Our employees are high functioning, collaborative, and accountable individuals who are empowered to take time for themselves while still delivering quality results.
We offer flexible vacation plus company holidays and encourage folks to take time off to recharge (with the expectation of setting the team up for success while one is out in advance). Our leadership team models this behavior as well.
With team members across the globe, adaptability is part of our DNA. Flexibility is intrinsic to how we communicate and build together.
Empathy for the patients we engage with fuels not only our drive and passion, but our deep-felt respect of their privacy, dignity, rights, and humanity. At Rune Labs, being honest and upfront with users about how we use, share, and protect their data is extremely important.
We purposefully design legal agreements to remove both the possibility and incentive for misuse of patient data, now or at any point in the future.
We discuss and evaluate patient risk in every phase of our engineering process, regardless of whether regulation obligates us or not.
We do not take shortcuts when it comes to security and safety of health data.
Regardless of the ever-changing nature of a startup, all Rune Labs employees have one mission in mind, to improve patient lives. We want better, patient-centered treatments for brain disease.
At Rune Labs, we collaborate with patients, clinicians, researchers, and industry partners to deliver the next generation of care for people with neurological disorders.
We push ourselves to be proactive, think creatively and out of the box to arrive at unconventional solutions for the changing needs of the business while keeping in mind the safety of patients, partners, and our employees.
We motivate individuals to take a team first attitude and empower them to add value where they can, even if it is outside their expertise. We believe this is how startups grow and succeed.
Rune Labs is a team of curious, driven individuals with diverse backgrounds and skills, but we’re all passionate about using brain data to improve patients' lives.
