Our Values

Loyalty Towards Human Life

Everything we do is rooted in respect for those we create products and technologies for, with the goal of helping people live longer, happier, and better. Their bodies, privacy, and dignity are at the core of why we exist: To enable a better relationship between human beings and their bodies.

Respect For Science

We are a company of curiosity, born in the lab. Our products are derived from complex scientific advancements, analyzed in clinical labs, and tested on patients. Our deep appreciation for material science and data are our secret weapons as we take on problems and develop technologies that allow people to live better lives.

Active Inclusion

Our products are developed for people who lead complex lives; we can’t assume we understand the inner workings of their realities. Thus, the voice of the user is a pivotal tool for our product development. As for our team, people from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented identity groups are promised a respectful working environment where their talents and best interests are properly valued.

Good Sense

We are a self-selecting and mission-focused team who is here because we believe in a shared vision. We dream big and remain realistic; all ideas are considered, and what follows is a practical plan for execution. We chase a bold vision, tempered with sound judgment, as the well-being of humans living with health challenges remains the constant and urgent focus of our actions.

Collaborate Ethos

We are a highly collaborative, cross-disciplinary team. We achieve alignment through consensus building and candid discussion, working towards a certainty that what we are doing is functional, rational and useful. We are aware that we can only accomplish these aims by fully incorporating the passions and talents of every member of our team. Work at Bonbouton is demanding and extraordinarily rewarding.

Endless Learning

Bonbouton is a team of scientists, designers, and strategists that is on an endless pursuit of knowledge. We recognize there is much more for each of us to discover, which is why we push ourselves to work on the edge of our comfort zones. We trek to conferences around the world, learn from experts, and leverage each other to teach us what we have yet to figure out ourselves.
