Our Working Culture
We’re a pretty diverse bunch and our culture is our common ground – it unites us through shared values, despite different backgrounds.
We build an environment that fosters mutual trust, honest discussions and strong teams. Trust empowers us to collaborate effectively. It gives us the confidence to positively embrace changes and the courage to take risks. We know that there is nothing stronger than a team, and there is nothing more unifying than achieving something together.
We are true to ourselves and don’t just adapt to fit in. We know that we can only make smart decisions when we put different perspectives together under one roof. Therefore, we thrive in an environment where everyone feels comfortable being their true selves and where we are empowered to disagree. We value integrity over loyalty and we openly voice what we think instead of saying what others want to hear.
We take full ownership for everything we do ─ both our failures and successes. We love to express fresh ideas and we intend to test their potential on a small scale first. We’re not afraid of executing crazy initiatives, nor are we afraid of burying fruitless trials. We’re passionate drivers of change, motivated to question the status quo ─ for both the organization and ourselves. Our intrinsic motivation and the passion for what we do are our drivers for success
Power of Proof
We love to test and learn. We want to get to the bottom of everything and explore the driving forces behind why things succeed and why they fail. We always state our case and test things out, fail fast and keep learning from our experiences, whether it be successes or failures ─ proof trumps position! Data is power. Making it transparent enables autonomy in decision making while staying aligned across teams.
We set our priorities based on the added value for trivago. While we work and operate in autonomous units, we’re aligned on the same direction and with the same purpose. Staying productive as a company is highly dependent on our ability to stay on top of our duties, manage our time efficiently and spend our energy wisely. We set our priorities based on the added value for trivago. If we spark impact, we unwaveringly focus our energy on it and try to become a little better every day.
We never stop learning. We strongly believe that power comes from sharing knowledge, not from keeping it to ourselves. We’re open to continuously changing our beliefs and processes based on new learnings. Our dynamic work environment frequently pushes us out of our comfort zone. Our learning mindset ensures we reflect and learn from these experiences to adapt quickly. We don’t stand still, we’re curious by nature and seek to continuously learn. We strive for improvement and perfection.
