Individually talented, with a shared spirit

At Glean, no one is just a cog in a wheel; we’re all individuals with a shared belief in impact-driven tech. This means that we pool our talents to drive innovation, and use our combined skills for the common goal of making better learners! It all comes down to three key values:

1. Trust is foundational

Trust is everything. The trust we have with each other and with our customers is fundamental to what we do. So, we embed it into the heart of our culture.

2. Growth is a mindset

We succeed through our individual attitudes and our collective ability to overcome huge obstacles. We want Glean to be a place where everyone can become their best selves.

3. The journey is best enjoyed together

Ours is a positive and inclusive environment which fosters meaningful connections between people, so we can enjoy what we do and be creative together.

These values have led to us being named as one of the best tech companies to work for in Yorkshire and the UK, two quarters running!
