Culture & Values

  • Innovative

    We value people who can't stop thinking about improving the future and who are working today to make that future possible. How can we stay ahead of technology to meet our customers' ever-changing needs? We're fueled by forward-thinking employees who see the potential of better technologies, processes and ideas through diversity and who take the steering wheel to drive it forward.

  • Fun

    All work and no play leads straight to burn out, which is why we foster a sense of fun at work. Whether it's celebrating successful product releases or working alongside colleagues on volunteer days, we believe that freeing our minds from routine once in a while makes us more productive, builds stronger teams and promotes positive mindsets.

  • Disruptive

    We never say "Don't change it if it's not broken." We're always looking at things from different angles with an eye for how we can do it better, faster and more efficiently.

  • Open

    We keep it open, honest and inclusive. We welcome all employees' feedback with an open-door policy, and we care as much about providing a collaborative and inclusive employee experience as we do about helping our customers solve their biggest data problems.

  • Passionate

    You can have the best people and the best products in the world, but without passion, you can't call it Splunk. Passion for our products and customers drives us further and keeps us reaching higher. It's why we excitedly talk about Splunk to anyone who will listen — if you don't believe it, just ask one of us about Splunk and see what happens.
