Core values.

the best customer experience, period.
Our customer experience is unmatched. We empower everyone at ClickUp to fix problems and act with our customers' best interests in mind.
Grow 1% every day.
Personal growth doesn't have to come from huge milestones—even 1% daily growth can be life-changing. At ClickUp, we're committed to growing at least 1% every day and helping others do the same.
Work hard, drive urgency, and be an owner in the details.
An ownership mindset and healthy sense of urgency empower us to get sh*t done. Small details add up and evolve into big wins when we follow through and embrace being an owner from start to finish.
Normal f*cking sucks.
ClickUp is built on the principle of doing things differently. We don't subscribe to the status quo or settle for good enough. We embrace change and innovative thinking to get ahead of challenges.
Pay it forward with random acts of kindness.
A successful company is not only defined by the value it receives, but by the value it gives back. At ClickUp, we believe in creating a net positive impact by providing resources and relief to those experiencing adversity, both internally and externally.
Have fun, find joy, be you.
With big goals comes hard work, but time is too precious not to have fun and be yourself along the way. While not every minute of work can be gleeful, every problem has a solution and we enjoy figuring it out together!
Be transparent and direct, with optimism.
There's a balance between challenging directly and caring personally. Be open with context and direct with your opinions, without being a jerk. It's important to be challenged so that we grow!
