Mission: We"re here to unleash the world"s creative energy by designing a more enlightened way of working.
Aim higher: Set audacious goals. We believe in taking risks and being willing to disrupt ourselves, so we don"t squander an opportunity to build something much bigger. With the density of incredible talent at Dropbox and the size of the opportunity in front of us, we owe it to each other to push limits.
Be worthy of trust: Take care of each other and our users, and keep their best interests at heart. Millions of people and businesses trust us to safeguard their most important information. We strive to be as transparent as possible with them and each other.
Cupcake: Surprise and delight each other and our users. Cupcake is about adding an authentic, human touch to everything we do. But more than that, it"s about finding creative ways to make our users (and each other) smile whether it"s our quirky illustrations, or bringing a roving ice cream cart to the office to celebrate a product launch. We believe that the magic we create together as Dropboxers translates into magic for our users.
Sweat the details: Obsess over quality and strive to master your craft. We believe that truly insightful solutions emerge from a deep understanding of problems and a dedication to iteration. We push ourselves (and each other) to get to the root of problems, and we don"t accept sloppy solutions or band-aids (temporary fixes).
We, not i: We"re a village, and as members, we each need to do our part for the village to thrive. We tackle a never-ending stream of people, product, and business challenges, many of which are far too hard to be solved by a single person or team. We believe in people really knowing each other and in putting the welfare of Dropbox and our users before ourselves.
