We often say that the only thing we know is that we know nothing and that the more we learn, the less we know.
Humility is very genuinely practiced at Strapi as from the beginning it has always been very important for the whole team. As teammates, we value humble Strapiers that see and accept their own strengths and limitations without defensiveness or judgment. But being humble doesn't mean that you can't feel pride over work nicely done!
Embracing the value of Proactive Responsibility means being accountable, being committed, reliable, and accepting ownership for one's decisions, actions, and behavior. Moreover, proactivity drives the performance and innovation of teams and organizations and boosts individuals’ well-being and careers. We value result-driven behavior, as we are in a fast-paced ecosystem and need efficiency and rigor to scale.
Caring for others, our teammates, our community, customers and for oneself are one of the stepping stone on which Strapi is built. We are deeply convinced that the development of Strapi could not be possible without the help of all these stakeholders, and to achieve results, we strive to create a safe, inclusive where team members can work together effectively. We believe kindness, positivity, and humor can move mountains, as we noticed huge benefits each time these values have been showcased.
Strapi is a company that very early on strived to be a major actor in its ecosystem. The open-source philosophy makes us an unavoidable product in the developer's world. The Strapi adventure is all about overcoming the challenge of creating a unique quality product while bonding together brilliant experts to create an awesome team.
Strapi's Ambition makes us grow at a very fast pace, but our growth is controlled at all times, with a clear vision of where Strapi is going.
We are an open-source project as well as a company, and therefore, we are open about as many aspects as possible. The Strapi repository is public by default as is our roadmap and our handbook. Transparency allows us to quickly gather feedback, like when we communicated our decision about dropping MongoDB.
