Be Brave

We have courage to face risks and speak openly because we always support each other.

Being brave means having the courage to face the hard stuff, as intimidating as it might be. We are most brave when each of us can find our voice and have the confidence to speak up or go against the mainstream.

Everyone is welcome to constructively challenge themselves, their colleagues, and their leaders in a direct and respectful way. Saying no can be as important as saying yes.

We want everyone to feel safe and supported when trying new things, to call out concerns, and to have the confidence to accept failure as part of the journey in becoming our better selves. We are curious and passionate about learning every day.

We are brave because we are open to change and we embrace the growth that it brings. We know that we can adapt while staying true to ourselves and our purpose. We have the determination to think BIG, to blaze new trails, and to make a serious impact.

We value openness and honesty, and we follow our moral compass. We engage on a personal level and put ourselves in each others’ shoes to create a compassionate work environment for all of us.

We take our values seriously, stay true to our purpose, and live our beliefs every day. We take pride in what we do and we are proud of who we are. Each one of us can be a thought leader. We take ownership and responsibility seriously when we act on behalf of Cookiebot™.

We are brave because we have the strength to face risks and challenges. We are brave because we welcome and celebrate how they help us evolve. And above all, we are brave because we dare to be our authentic selves.

Better Together

We listen, make safe spaces, and trust each other to get the job done or ask for help because we all have the same goals.

We believe that we are better together. We understand that we might be faster alone but that together we go further. It’s one of our greatest strengths, as we are driven by the same goals, mission and purpose.

We think “WE” over “ME” and work as one team. Everyone is trusted to do their job and gets the chance to develop skills, gain experience, and obtain the information they need to do their work. We all have each other’s backs and support each other when it gets hard. Asking for help is always welcomed and is a sign that a team works well.

We foster a culture of collaboration and open communication. We are always happy to share knowledge and feedback is always welcome and given respectfully. Hearing different views and perspectives helps us to rethink and change our own perspectives and make more inclusive decisions for our company and customers.

People should feel like they belong culturally and socially. We are a diverse group, with a wide variety of languages, nationalities, identities, beliefs, and experiences. Cookiebot™ is a safe space. Everyone should feel like their whole selves are welcomed and valued.

We celebrate all successes. Our own, our team members’, and the whole company’s. We work every day to create a safe environment where we trust one another and can expect to receive fair treatment. We care for each other both as coworkers and as people. We do our best to respect the needs and values of others by showing empathy to one another.

We make an effort to get to know our colleagues, which improves communication and makes working more fun. Ultimately, it’s all about the people.

Lead By Example

We can all build and use leadership skills, so we take initiative and value everyone’s potential, abilities, and experience.

We believe the best way to learn and show leadership is by example and interactively. We aim to inspire others with our vision and dedication. We expect leadership from team leads, management, and the executives. But leading or using leadership skills isn’t exclusive to titles. We can all use leadership skills in our work, nurture those who want to lead, and celebrate colleagues who take ownership.

We value people’s expertise and taking initiative and action to benefit the company, whether it’s high profile or quietly making sure things get done. We remember that leaders are members of teams, too, and we value humanity, courage, humility, openness, and curiosity. We as leaders are open to the team’s ideas. We understand the team’s motivations and lead by example to achieve the team’s goals.

We work to develop skills, confidence, and accountability in everyone. We make decisions, which are sometimes uncomfortable but necessary. We take action quickly but not impulsively in order to make good decisions and enable everyone to keep making progress. Leadership requires honesty, and leaders create a trusting environment by owning their mistakes or poor decisions so colleagues can see it’s okay to get it wrong.

We value dedicated effort to enable teams to do their best work by creating and maintaining an environment with strong trust and support, and where stress is managed with urgency and care. We are present — physically or virtually — for our teams and stand up for them.

Great leadership is reflected in a great team. Leadership means encouraging and nurturing team members to grow, personally and professionally, including when it means growing into their next role.

Innovate With Purpose

We solve real world problems so that successful data-driven business and user privacy enable a thriving digital ecosystem.

We know that successful data-driven business and user privacy are not at odds; they are symbiotic. We want both our company and our vision to lead globally, and we want to innovate with purpose to build a world where privacy enables a thriving digital ecosystem.

Our innovation is focused on solving real problems for the long-term for businesses and consumers, and knowing why we solve them. Knowing why makes “how” and “what” easier. Our mission is to provide solutions that guide people to take control of their data and enable companies to grow sustainably.

We listen to prospects, customers and the market, but they don’t drive our business — we do. Innovation can be big or small. Validating and testing ideas and improving is more important than the size or potential importance of the idea. Every idea is worth considering, and new ideas and innovation can come from everywhere and anyone. We refine them together to make something great.

We know that ideas without action are meaningless. Form your idea, communicate it, validate it, and execute it. We question plans and ideas through the lens of our vision. We regularly ask why we are doing this? What useful purpose does it serve? Does it help in the short term or long term? Who is it for? We want to innovate with purpose to build a world where privacy enables a thriving digital ecosystem.

Passion For Privacy

We drive innovation by building sustainable technology and long-term relationships with privacy as our vision and mission.

What we believe in shines through every part of our business. Whether it’s working with prospects, supporting customers, crafting messaging or innovating on new features or products. You can’t fake it. Privacy is our vision and mission, not just a software function.

We believe in building technology and solutions for the future, and to being a strong voice leading the evolution of data privacy, from consumer education to government policy. We know that we do better work when what we’re working on has meaning and makes a difference in the world.

Working with passion isn’t always tidy or safe. We are ambitious and foster innovation, risk-taking and a continued drive for success. Things look a little messy sometimes; that’s how we know we’re getting somewhere. We know we can make an impact, so we make ourselves useful and put in the work to make it happen.

We care about our customers like they’re our teammates and build products we would want to use, too. We build well-oiled, integrated partnerships and long-term relationships, not just transactional sales.

close
Give Back

We share what we have, and grow with intention, purpose, and care.

We build with intention and purpose and know that some things take time to do well. We grow with care and to make things better. We deliver solutions that are needed, and provide constructive direction for customers and the market.

We sell to customers with the goal of building long-term and mutually beneficial relationships. We have a responsibility to do our best to enable our customers’ success. The most sustainable state of being is authenticity. Our teams, our products, and the service we provide are always authentic so they are sustainable long term.

We believe in balance, so we embrace sharing what we have and giving back, whether that’s sweat equity, knowledge sharing or financial contributions. We value thriving people within our company and outside of it, as well as thriving communities and a healthy planet. Therefore we care about each other, our customers and the planet and volunteer to help where needed. We know that change starts with us.

Come As You Are

We are different and global at all levels, so we commit to equity, embracing and working through differences, and are always listening and learning.

Everyone is different. Everyone brings diverse perspectives and experiences to their work, all of which have value. We are global at all levels, and our work is for a global audience and market.

 

We know that our differences may bring challenges and we commit every day to accepting that we’re not all the same, learning about our individualities, and figuring out how to use those skills, experiences, and perspectives to strengthen teams and make us work better together.

We value openness to change and to learn new things, and we understand that we are permanent students in the company and in the world. Diversity is not to be tolerated, it’s to be celebrated on a daily basis. When you discover something you don’t know or feel uncomfortable, that’s when growth starts.
We welcome everyone as they are. We like to consider Cookiebot™ as a melting pot, where we combine everyone’s backgrounds and are united by Cookiebot’s™ shared values. We act with empathy and kindness, without judgment, and have each other’s backs. We stand up for an inclusive work environment in which everyone feels appreciated and treated equally. We value respect, trust and the ability to constructively disagree.

We know that we each have a responsibility to do the work to learn and understand who others are and where they are coming from. We focus on the idea, action or message, rather than how we would have done it differently. We strive for equity over equality. Equity gives everyone access to what they need to succeed, and that’s different for each person. It considers that not everyone starts on equal footing. Equality is the idea that given the same opportunities, everyone will have similar outcomes, which is not always true.

We don’t want it to be much harder or riskier for some people to be brave. We want people to feel they belong culturally and socially. We are a diverse group, with a wide variety of languages, nationalities, identities, beliefs, and experiences. This is also a great strength, enabling more creativity and harnessing our group’s maximum potential.

Each of us is unique and has a lot in common with others in the company, which drives empathy. We want everyone to feel like their whole selves are welcomed and valued. We provide a safe space in which we can all be different human beings.
