Our Values

Our Partnerships are Win-Win
Some say the customer is always right. We say that when we work with our customers as a team, we mutually find the best outcomes. In other words, we view our partnerships with our merchants, our partners, and even our employees as win-win. 

Live Curiously
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.

Founder Mentality
We embrace the founder mentality — that means approaching every problem as if we owned the company (because we do). We execute with attention to detail, "connect the dots" across the organization, want to build something great, and we are not afraid to get our hands dirty in the process. 

United + Unique
Our team is united by many shared values and we see our individual differences as a competitive advantage. We 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're constantly pushing the company forward. Never taking our eye off of growth and impact. We've created an environment where we can act fearlessly.

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 creates a culture where teammates are eager to and can easily share and collaborate. 

Our Culture

Good People
We’re uniquely driven by our values. Not only do they guide how we work, they also help dictate how we treat one another. We don’t shy away from candid feedback, we welcome it; we don’t win as individuals, we win as a team, and most importantly - we leave our egos at the door.

Meaningful Work
We’re a lean company addressing some of the biggest challenges in ecommerce. As such, we’re counting on you to bring your passion, courage, and creativity to the table every day. From the start, you’ll practice extreme ownership over your ideas and have the opportunity to work on high-impact projects. You’ll be part of a collaborative culture, find mentorship opportunities, and you’ll have the ability to work with some of the most driven individuals in the industry who will push you to become the best version of yourself every day. 

Tremendous Impact
We’re building more than just a platform. Bolt is changing the way shoppers purchase online and helping retailers in the process. As a member of the Bolt team, you’ll hone your critical thinking, you’ll sharpen your problem-solving skills and you’ll have a tremendous impact on the lives of the millions of shoppers who interact with our checkout daily. 

Authenticity

At Bolt, we believe that everyone succeeds when they feel safe, heard and empowered. Since day one, we’ve prioritized authenticity and transparency, and it's the reason our teammates are able to bring their whole selves to work.

Bolt is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.
