Neo4j employees are the pioneers of graph technology. Collaboration is inherent to our role as creators and builders of this category, a market that we continue to lead and drive. Our open source and developer roots form the core of a community mindset where collaboration between and across every aspect of or company, and with our broader 300k+ community, is inherent to what we do. Our systems mandate bottom-up input, ideation and transparency, as a complement to top-down vision and strategy, to ensure every employees is part of our journey to build and scale the company on behalf of our customers, community, and the market.
Graph technology, a category we created and continue to lead, is now exploding. Gartner predicts that graph technologies will be used in 80% of data and analytics innovations by 2025, up from 10% in 2021, facilitating rapid decision-making across the enterprise. We have grown rapidly yet thoughtfully while remaining profitable every quarter of every year since we were founded in 2007. Every single employee at Neo4j is here because the vision for our company and the category is synonymous with our belief that solving the world’s biggest data challenges at scale can only be achieved with graph technology, given its unique ability to find hidden patterns in connected data at infinite degrees of separation at a time when data and all its connections are exploding exponentially.
We thrive in a culture that is open and inclusive. Everything we plan, develop, produce, and deploy in the company is shared with everyone. Everything. With everyone. At the beginning of each month, we host All Nodes meetings where updates and issues are shared; and in the middle of each month, employees can Ask Management Anything — anything — either publicly or via anonymously submitted questions. Ideas are digitally logged, reviewed, and considered/responded to. We also field public and anonymous employee surveys as part of our own strategy development. These approaches are part of our DNA as a open source community culture whose vision is to make graph available and accessible to everyone.
We deliver regular training, conduct 360-feedback, and are evolving our systems that show career development and growth across levels in addition to across functions. Managers’ performance KPIs are also tied to how well we ensure the success of others.
The 6 company values that define our culture are fully aligned with our employees because they are identical to the values our Founder CEO continues to take in creating and scaling graph technology itself, especially as an open source community driven technology. We (1) value relationships, (2) are focused on user success, (3) thrive in a culture that is open and inclusive, (4) assume positive intent, (5) welcome intellectually honest discussions, and (6) deliver on our commitments. These values have not changed since our founder Emil Eifrem started the company in 2004, and it’s why our employees come, stay, and grow.
Examples of programs include a generous global parental leave, employee stock ownership, quarterly global wellness days, time off for volunteering, employee resource groups, Ask Me Anything initiatives, employee sabbaticals and passion project development, and the active enforcement of our corporate values. Many of our employees have remained with Neo4j from our company’s beginnings in addition to new employees as we’ve continued to rapidly grow and scale.
Our CEO is also Neo4j’s founder, and has been so since starting the company in 2007. He serves as a model of our company’s values because he is the embodiment of them. Neo4j is his life’s work and driven by his passion for graph and the community that is part of it.
Examples include generous parental leave, performance based bonuses and stock ownership, quarterly global wellness days, time for passion projects, and a monthly celebration and awards granted to 6 employees across the company for embodying each one of Neo4j’s 6 corporate values.
