Our Values

Cribl, like all companies, is a collection of individuals with diverse backgrounds and unique stories. We all come to this company with our own personal values, but as we come together collectively we want to align the company around a shared set of values that we embrace. These values serve as guidance to our current and future employees as to what makes Cribl, Cribl.

Customers first, always

First we help customers.
Then everything else.

Irreverent, but serious

We are a serious company
with a love for goats and jokes.

Insatiably curious

We seek to understand problems
and the people who have them
before taking action.

Open & authentic

Driving clarity is a strategic
advantage. Communication is
easier when we are real.

Excel together

We challenge and support each other

to greater levels of execution to
an enduring impact.


We believe in an inclusive workplace

Diversity drives innovation, enables better decisions to support our customers, and inspires change for the better. We’re building a culture where differences are valued and welcomed. We work together to bring out the best in each other.

We are building the company that will become the industry leader in IT and Security data. But, doing that doesn’t mean we’re always serious. We approach our work fearlessly, learn quickly, improve constantly, and celebrate our wins at every turn. And more importantly, we laugh a lot. Like, a lot a lot. We jest, we joke, we kid. We are irreverent, but that never detracts from our mission; in fact, it enhances it, because it makes the mission more fun.
