Zscaler has been recognized as one of the 2020 Bay Area Best Places To Work by the San Francisco Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
Awards and recognition are always gratifying, but this award is particularly humbling to me and the entire leadership team because it's a reflection of how Zscaler employees feel about our company. In my mind, good companies are built by good products. Great companies, however, are built by great people — and that’s all of you. In Jay’s words:
“Our employees are the heart and soul of the company. I’m proud of this award because it is a reflection of how much they love working here.”
Zscaler is hiring around the world right now. We have worked tirelessly to create a great company and culture built on the foundation of our core values. We keep our core values central to everything we do, and I wanted to quickly review them with all of you:
Customer obsession: We are, above all else, obsessed about our customers’ success. I see us consistently succeeding at this by how we treat customers as partners, not prospects. This dedication to supporting our customers on their digital journey isn’t easy, but we are continuing to make this happen.
Teamwork: We celebrate together. We openly share information. We move as one. I am proud of the persistence and humility demonstrated by our employees. In a world where ego can sometimes overshadow productivity, it’s always been the company’s priority to foster a collaborative work environment.
Open communications (candor over politics): When it comes to discussing what’s right, what’s wrong, and what we can do better, nothing is off the table. Although we continue to grow at a rapid pace, it’s important to foster an environment where employees feel secure sharing their opinions with others. Some of our best ideas have come from employees advocating to change things that haven’t been working or from those unafraid to stand by their beliefs when seeing an opportunity for improvement.
Passion (over self-interest): We are fiercely passionate about our work, our company, our colleagues, our customers, and our partners. As an incredibly diverse company, we understand that the passions of our employees may differ, however, this is what continues to make us successful.
Innovation: We are driven to not only innovate cloud transformation through our products but to also innovate in our jobs, whether an engineer, marketer, salesperson, or any other job function. So many companies trust us to secure their digital transformation through our technology, and we all feel an obligation to continue to innovate and reach new milestones, such as surpassing 100B transactions per day.
We are always looking for exceptional people to join the Zscaler family, so if our company sounds like something you want to be a part of, we’d love to talk to you. We’re hiring across the board.
Greg Pappas is the Chief People Officer at Zscaler.
