The Zero Hash Culture

All Zero Hash employees are guided by the following characteristics and core principles:

  • Independence/Ownership – An ability to work autonomously. Join Zero Hash, pitch ideas, and shape the work you do.
  • Passion – We are innovating quickly and challenging the status quo. We want you to think big, be creative and make a difference every day.
  • Collaborative – A good attitude and respect for others. We’re teammates, not co-workers. Everything we do is shared success and equally a shared failure – we talk in terms of “we” not “me”.
  • Initiative – An ability and passion for learning and asking questions. We will champion you, challenge you and push you to achieve your best – and we expect you to do the same.
  • Empathy – An ability to listen, respect, and understand your co-workers, customers, and everyone you interact with no matter how different they are to you.
  • Adaptability – An ability to respond quickly. We are in a fast-paced industry and so we expect you to be creative when solving a new problem and comfortable under pressure.
  • Transparency – We believe that transparency is critical to empowering everyone to make the best decisions, both the company to its people and vice versa.
  • Integrity – Integrity creates trust. As both an organization collectively and as individuals, it is our most valuable asset.
