At Hortonworks, we believe strongly in our core set of shared values. These values shape who we are and how we make decisions on a daily basis. At Hortonworks, we are:
Passionate about our mission, customers and community. We are excited about the impact that our work can have on the world and each of us is committed to delivering great work that makes us all proud.
Delivery-focused. We do what we promise. No excuses.
Thought leaders, designers and builders. We drive innovation in our community and in all of our activities. We hire smart, innovative people who have a history of delivering great work.
Clear and direct. We tell it straight and stick to our word. We don’t tolerate politics or hidden agendas.
Team players. We don’t tolerate prima donnas. We strive to remain humble and celebrate each other’s successes.
Transparent (everyone has the maps). We use open processes and planning to engage our community, partners and customers. We share information widely and openly within the company. We expect team members to determine the right thing to do and go do it.
Relentlessly positive. We are polite and positive with each other, and with our customers, partners and community. We strive to improve our reputation with every public interaction.
Always looking for good ideas. Good ideas can come from anywhere and anyone. We strive to be good listeners.
Willing to recognize and fix our mistakes. Because we take risks, we will make some mistakes. We promise to learn from each mistake and not make the same mistakes twice.
In love with simplicity (KISS). Genius lies in solving hard problems very simply. We pick our battles. We don’t tilt at windmills.
Aware that there is more to life than work. We believe work should be fun and we won’t take ourselves too seriously.
