Avatar for OpenAI

Discovering and enacting the path to safe artificial general intelligence


Our culture is always evolving, and we believe new people can and should change how we operate and what we value. A few recurring themes stand out:

Mission-driven. People at OpenAI care deeply about building AI in a way that benefits humanity.
Goal-oriented. We move both quickly and deliberately to balance research and engineering objectives.
Collaborative. Many of our biggest advances grew out of work done across multiple teams.
Reflective. Building powerful technologies with the potential to impact society requires deep thought and discussion.
Growth mindset. We believe in the power of feedback, and encourage a mindset of continuous learning and growth.
