What we value
One of the top reasons new team members choose Bolt over other companies is our people and our values. Our people are exceptional. Our values are unique, and they unite us. READ OUR FULL VALUES.
Bolt thinks critically about culture. They’re not just a list of values on the wall, they’re instilled into our everyday practices. We create an environment where the best ideas win, not the loudest voices in the room.
Writing > Talking
We value writing over talking, it promotes systematic thought and reasoned arguments; creates a results-oriented mindset, removes the influence of the loudest voices in the room, and fosters collaboration across the organization.
We believe a learning and growth mindset is how we evolve and grow as a business and as individuals. At its core, a growth mindset requires curiosity, humility, and openness to giving and receiving feedback from everyone we work with.
We embrace the founder mentality — that means approaching every problem as if we owned the company (because we do), having a bias for action, and doing everything possible to achieve our goals.
United + Unique
Our team is united by many shared values (hunger to solve hard problems, passion for our mission, thoughtfulness, etc). But we also value the strength that comes when we acknowledge, respect, and embrace our unique histories, skills, and experiences. And, we firmly believe that we win when we are united in our differences.
Be 20% Wrong, Chase 10X
We move fast, take risks, and chase big outcomes wherever possible. We act fearlessly, take action without waiting for consensus, experiment, fail (and learn from it) and try again.
Focused on driving impact
To be best-in-class and create an entirely new category for Ecommerce, it starts from the inside. A great company culture needs as much intention and action as any other part of the business. This is especially true as a company grows and scales.
Without a great team, you might have something today, but you’ll have nothing tomorrow. This is a core belief of ours at Bolt. We also believe that great teams only endure with great cultures where impact, outcomes, and execution are balanced with humanity.
In order for Bolt to achieve its mission, diversity, equity, and inclusion need to be at the heart and center of Bolt’s business initiatives. This means fully committing to building a truly diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
We are dedicated to hiring diverse talent, creating conditions that provide everyone with an equal opportunity to grow and thrive, and providing resources and developing initiatives that buoy and support these values. We’re doing this because we believe that our team members, our product, and our merchants thrive when this is done right.
Bolt Affinity Groups
Bolt Affinity Groups are one example of how we foster inclusivity — by creating community and connection for our teammates.
BLK@ Bolt is a space created to support and uplift teammates who identify as black or in the African diaspora. This space is intended to be safe, inclusive, and supportive.
