We Live Cliqz - Our Values

We are Cliqz. More than 130 Cliqzers from over 30 countries with one common goal: Redesign the Internet.

Ambitious, humorous and creative Cliqzer work here daily on exciting challenges and innovations. Ambitious, humorous and creative? Right! That sounds like organized chaos. From the beginning on, it was our goal to create a creative environment with great team players that never lose the focus on the essentials and can always contribute and develop the best possible. And this is how our Cliqz culture arose, based on values we all share and live.

The Cliqz Values – May I introduce?

We Live Cliqz

We live Cliqz. We live our values and continuously contribute to the evolvement of our culture. We passionate approach our tasks. We use our products daily to understand them better and to improve them. And we are very proud talking to others about the great things we do here.

We Put Users First

We don’t only claim it. We really put the users and their privacy first. We don’t build our products for us but for our users. And we keep this in mind every day. We listen attentively to our valuable user feedback and share it with the whole team.

We Take Initiative

Cliqzers can introduce their creative ideas anytime. We demand Cliqzers to think ahead, to tackle things and to take over responsibility so that it never gets boring. It’s not hard to take initiative, you only have to do it.

We Push The Edge Of Reality

Even if it sounds strange: We want Cliqzers to make mistakes. Yes, part of it is breaking the whole system. When this happens, we reward you with a bottle of champagne. It’s not until you make mistakes that you realize you stepped out of your comfort zone, you had a go at something unknown, you thought big and you gave your best. Get up, dust yourself off and keep going!

We Value Each Other

At Cliqz everyone respects each other and everyone’s contribution to the teamwork. Everyone is interested in other’s opinion. Everyone knows everyone, knows the responsibilities and values everyone’s contribution to the success of Cliqz.

We Learn And Teach

If someone doesn’t learn anything at Cliqz it’s their fault. Everyone can profit from the huge scope of expertise and cultural backgrounds. Cliqzers give talks, workshops and offer their help at any occasion. For our newbies, we have our unique onboarding – our Cliqz University. Everyone learns how to code here.

We Communicate Openly, Honestly, Directly

More than 30 nationalities and various personalities come together at Cliqz. There is a potential for misunderstandings. But as we all agreed on speaking openly, honestly and directly with each other, there are no communication barriers. Furthermore, the personal development is extremely important to us. All Cliqzers receive and give constructive feedback frequently.

We Work As A Team

At Cliqz we play in a team. We have one common goal to which we all contribute with our individual tasks. All areas at Cliqz are very interconnected and Cliqzers frequently exchange to support each other with their expertise.

We Work Efficiently

This is something not only familiar to engineers: To face a challenge and to believe you immediately found the perfect solution and then figuring out after days, weeks, or months that it unfortunately doesn’t work. Of course, you can do so but then it’s probably garbage. Instead, we focus on the really important things, we take several approaches from the beginning, test them quick and dirty and then make the one that works beautiful.

Living values – How does that work?

After introducing values, something has to happen with them in the everyday work life. You can’t feel forced to follow them like a checklist. It has to be possible to live the values in a natural way. We are proud of our values and also show this. You can find them on our website and at our office. Cliqzers get to know them already in their application process. We do value sessions within the onboarding. We talk about how we can live the values in our everyday life. Furthermore, we use the values to thank our teammates. You take a value card, note who you would like to thank and why and we read it out in our weekly team meeting. It is a beautiful way to say thanks and to remind everyone what the values stand for in our everyday life.

How would Cliqz look like without values?

One for sure; different! Certainly, we would anyway come to the office in the morning, we would still work towards our common big goal and would still start satisfied into the weekend after having a beer on a Friday evening. Would we also keep our motivation? Would we have just as that much fun with our teammates? Would we be just as productive? Would we still be a real team when something goes wrong? Probably not and we don’t want to try it out. We Live Cliqz.
