Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge
- Our MissionThe vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of experience in people’s heads, or buried in books and papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds—from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences—so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge, and we're building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.
- Our Values
We place long-term, collective impact ahead of personal achievement.
We aim high and do whatever it takes to get things done.
We are nimble in our processes and systems, ready to adapt to a changing world.
We are rigorous in our decisions and candid in our communication.
We stay grounded in the outcomes that truly matter for our mission.
