As a basis for our day-to-day we believe in giving people the space they need, balancing their careers with their private lives. We want to spend our time in an environment where family, personal life and work are in harmony with one another.
Trust is the bedrock this freedom is built upon, both in the relationship between a company and its employees and in the relationships between coworkers.
Our Company Values
Our company values are an integral part of our company philosophy. They form the foundation for entrepreneurial, ethicalcollaborative cooperation.
Openness and Honesty
We see these two values as the basis for interacting with one another. This allows us to collaborate as a team with mutual trust and to achieve more together and happier than we would alone.
Courage and Tolerance
We have the courage to assume responsibility for our own work, and to admit to our own mistakes and deal with them. One is nothing without the other.
In the same breath, we show tolerance for the mistakes of others so that it’s easier for everyone to openly admit to their own mistakes
We act with integrity and in accordance with our convictions. We stand behind our statements and follow up our words with action. We cultivate this integrity both within idealo and with respect to our users and partners.
