Our core values
Earn trust everyday.
Our members trust in us and our trust in each other is paramount, and we earn this trust every day. We guard the privacy of our members and 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 neighbors to build stronger and safer local communities around the world. We are building our company in the spirit of a great neighborhood. We welcome newcomers, extend a helping hand, and embrace collaboration. We seek and respect diverse opinions and perspectives. We are good neighbors.
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 neighbors, as well as advertisers, organizations 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 neighborhoods 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 neighbors 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 we 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 neighborhood. 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.” -Kevin Liu, Engineering Lead
“I decided to join Nextdoor because I was impressed with the talented people I met with during the interview process and having read about the company, I liked the direction they were headed in. Everyone I have come in contact with has been very collaborative and eager to help. It’s a fast-paced environment, no question, but I feel as though the right tools are in place in order to succeed. It has been great being a part of a company with a purpose-based mission that is really resonating with our consumers and clients.” -Stephanie Lawrence, Client Partner
“I would describe Nextdoor’s culture as neighborly and inclusive. The people here look out for each other and bring a distinctive kindness and warmth to their day-to-day interactions. My favorite thing about working at Nextdoor is the fact that the work is technically challenging, fast-paced, and impactful. I appreciate getting to collaborate with not only other engineers, but also designers, product managers, and data scientists.” -James Ortiz, iOS Engineer
“Nextdoor’s purpose-driven culture really struck me. It wasn’t enough to work on small iterations or move a few metrics — everyone was really driven towards the “North Star” of strengthening neighborhoods and fighting social isolation. I also appreciated how people were critical of the product’s shortcomings, and didn’t shy away from discussing them and possible solutions. I was excited to work at a place where I could have a lot of say in the product and help realize an ambitious and important purpose.” -Danielle Limcaoco, Product Designer
