Our Philosophy

Living by our values – the Four I’s

At the heart of how we work are the Four I’s – innovation, integrity, impact and individuals. These are our core values and the commitment every SailPoint crew member makes to themselves, everyone they work with, all key stakeholders and the rest of the organisation.

Delivering on the commitments we make

We understand what is expected of us and ensure that we have the resources to meet or beat that expectation. Because we empower our employees to do the right thing and place high value on open communications, every person who works in or with our company knows they can depend on us to do what we say we’ll do.

Measuring and rewarding results, not activity

We believe effort should not be confused with progress. We ensure that every person in our company understands what success looks like and how to get there. People succeed here based on the delivery of measurable results. And we expect people on our team to deliver those great results with a great attitude.

Valuing every person at SailPoint

We believe that the single greatest asset of a software company is people. By treating everyone in our company as a person, not a number, we create a work environment that is responsive to needs both on and off the job. We take our business very seriously, but maintain a healthy sense of balance in our lives.


The heart of who we are

We bring out the best in one another. We are a passionate, innovative team inspired to tackle the toughest identity challenges out there. Best of all, we do it in an exciting, collaborative, caring and fun work environment.

Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging

This is a place where everyone is treated respectfully. Our diversity makes us stronger, more innovative, and unified. This is where we belong.
