Our culture

At ThoughtSpot, we like to sum up our culture
in two words: Selfless Excellence.

What is Selfless Excellence?

Selfless Excellence means we strive for excellence in everything we do, while always putting the customer and team ahead of the individual. We prioritize humility and actively discourage office politics of any kind. It's our secret sauce to building a diverse team and innovating world-class products.

Core Value

Team first

We put the customer, company, and team ahead of ourselves. In that order.

Core Value

Be the best

We aim to be excellent at everything we do, or we don't do it at all. We don't settle. We stand out.

Core Value


We leave our egos at the door, take feedback in stride, and are open to new ideas.

Core Value

No politics

We win as a team or not at all. We communicate with transparency and back decisions with data.

If you have the right people around you, with the psychological safety to talk through any problem and the intellectual honesty to admit mistakes and apply those lessons, you can work through anything.

Our 2% done growth mindset

Whenever we hit a new milestone, we like to remind ourselves that our work is only 2% done. We stay curious and strive for continuous growth and learning, getting a little bit closer every day to achieving our mission.

Diversity and inclusion

Building a diverse and inclusive team isn't just the right thing to do for our people, it's the right thing to do for our business. You can’t solve complex data problems with a single perspective. It takes many voices, experiences, and areas of expertise to deliver the innovative solutions our customers need. We’re committed to being real and continuously learning when it comes to pay equality, recruiting, and creating space for underrepresented groups to thrive.

Employee Resource Groups

Each of our employee resource groups, ¡ Adelante !, Rainbow Room, Veterans and Allies and ThoughtSpot Women's Group, exist to foster community and a sense of belonging among our global community of Spotters. They help drive organizational change, improve the overall quality of an our culture, and play a fundamental role in making ThoughtSpot a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
