Careers at Nextdoor
We believe that by bringing neighbours together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighbourhood they can rely on.
Nextdoor is built on the idea that the neighbourhood is one of the most important communities in an individual’s life. We strive to be a place that neighbours everywhere come for trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services.
Join our innovative, diverse, and welcoming team, and help us empower neighbours around the world.
Our core values
Earn trust everyday.
Our members trust in us and our trust in each other is paramount. We guard the privacy of our members and work hard every day to provide a civil place for communities to thrive. We debate in plain sight with a transparent, inclusive and consistent decision making process.
Invest in community.
We believe in the transformative power of community. We empower neighbours to build stronger and safer local communities around the world. We are building our company in the spirit of a great neighbourhood. We welcome newcomers, extend a helping hand, and embrace collaboration. We seek and respect diverse opinions and perspectives. We are good neighbours.
Customers are the lifeblood of our business; we develop products with their needs at the forefront, innovate relentlessly to better address these needs, and work every day to earn their love and trust. Customers include members, as well as advertisers, organisations such as public agencies and charities, and local businesses. In particular, we believe that when local businesses thrive, communities thrive. We partner with those that share our values and help us on our mission to become the essential local platform.
We push each other to aim high because neighbourhoods everywhere are counting on us. We are building a company with global impact, but exercise a discipline to start small and double-down on what works. We push through fear of failure because we know big leaps forward come from new approaches and voices.
Experiment and learn quickly.
We believe innovation will come from experimentation and iteration. We build remarkable products by acting on member feedback and insights. We are curious and humble and know the best learning is often through failure.
Act like an owner.
Just as our neighbours take pride in their communities, we take pride in our work. We follow through on our commitments. We have the courage and audacity of owners, we strive for excellence and always go the extra mile. If we see something, we do something. We embrace responsibility, acting with purpose and speed every day.
Diverse communities are stronger communities.
At Nextdoor, we celebrate our similarities and our differences. We know that in order to build a product that truly empowers communities around the world, we need to understand their values, cultures, and traditions.
To gain that understanding, we are building a diverse team that reflects each community’s unique characteristics, and cultivating an inclusive environment where everyone can be seen and heard.
Why I love Nextdoor
“I joined Nextdoor for the opportunity to use technology to build human connection in one of the most important communities there is: your neighbourhood. It’s amazing to see how globally connected the Internet has made us all, but at the expense of us feeling more isolated wherever we are physically. It’s been rewarding to use technology to help repair rifts that it might have contributed to, working alongside others who also prioritize community and in-person interaction.”
