Diversity, equity & inclusion

Diversity means understanding, valuing and celebrating differences between people—all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, abilities and orientations, regardless of socio-economic backgrounds. 

What diversity and inclusion means to us

We value an employee's authentic self while respecting and reinforcing an inclusive workplace culture. We always strive to build, hire and develop underrepresented talent, promote inclusive leaders and nurture people of diverse backgrounds and identities.


As a global company with offices across the world, Optimizely attracts talent that reflects the unique characteristics of each vibrant locale where we are based.
