Our Core Values

Our core values are designed to be unique to Bitmovin, a set of operational commandments designed to unite our team under one streamlined operational umbrella. They serve as our behavioral lens through which each employee should look through when it comes to knowing how to act on a day-to-day basis.
Think through the customer lens.

Create the best solutions to enable our customers to deliver the best experiences to the markets they serve. Go the extra mile to surprise and delight our customers.

Own it.

Take pride in your work and accomplish what you set out to do. See it through to completion. Find and provide solutions to problems and take initiative.

Attack the idea, not the person.

Engage in constructive conflict and get all ideas out in the open at the start of a project. Treat others respectfully and embrace new perspectives with an open mind.

Innovate relentlessly.

Seek to learn continuously and cultivate a culture of innovation and curiosity. Adopt an always learning mindset and flex your idea muscles often.

Execute and get results.

A strategy is just a theory unless it is executed. Plans, while important, don’t move the needle for the company. Results do. Look to create the highest impact, efficiently.
