The SailPoint Story

Focused on identity, driven by integrity

«Creating a great company doesn’t happen by accident. It takes leadership and focus, an innovative work environment, and a collective passion to solve customer problems.»

SailPoint is not your typical tech company. We collectively stand for bringing out the best in one another to the benefit of our stakeholders around the world. When Mark, along with his co-founders, created SailPoint in 2005, his promise was to provide innovative solutions to some of the world’s most challenging and dynamic business challenges. But he didn’t stop there. He also promised that the work would be done in an exciting, collaborative, caring and fun work environment. 

All of these years later and that promise continues to ring true today. And just like in SailPoint’s early days, we are fiercely and passionately committed to solving our customers’ most pressing security and identity challenges. One thing is clear: the world around us changes in the blink of an eye and SailPoint has to keep pace and stay a step (or two, or three) ahead. 

SailPoint is all about innovation. We like to rethink technology. The way we work together. How we help our customers. How we add value for our shareholders. How we care for employees and our communities. We are identity pioneers who thrive on taking on new challenges that seem daunting to others. We bring out the best in each other, and as hard as we each work, we have a lot of fun along the way. 

Our Leadership 

Our ‘Four I’s’ Philosophy 

SailPoint’s success is directly tied to our Core Values, affectionately also known as the “Four I’s”: Innovation, Integrity, Impact, and Individuals. These are cornerstones to our corporate culture, and because they are independent of scale, they have served us well from our early days as a startup through today as a fast-growing global company. Every SailPoint Crew member lives and breathes these core values and that comes from the very top – Mark is incredibly passionate about leading with these values in mind at all times (so much so that he even wrote a book about it!) and that trickles into every single facet of our business and culture.



Developing creative solutions to real challenges.

Our products and services deliver unique, compelling value to our customers and partners. In fact, we expect to have a significant, positive impact on the bottom line. We passionately strive to help our customers run their companies better and faster. Their success breeds our success.


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 a 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.


Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

As our world evolves around us, so must we. We believe strongly that every single one of our people matter. And that with more diversity among our crew, together we grow stronger, more unified, more able to enact lasting change.

Our ALL IN philosophy is simple: Everyone is important. Everyone is treated respectfully, no matter the background or culture, ability, age, ethnicity, gender identification, race, sexual orientation, religious belief, veteran’s status.

SailPoint Gives Back

We come from a culture where integrity runs deep (it is one of our ‘Four I’ core values, after all). We deliver on our commitments to others, which is especially true of our approach to giving. While we have a long history of philanthropy over the years, we formally established our approach to giving with the SailPoint Gives Back Foundation in 2020 to enable a legacy of SailPoint Crew giving.

Initially seeded by our CEO and Founder Mark McClain as well as from SailPoint, the foundation allows us to contribute intentionally and meaningfully to our communities. The SailPoint Gives Back Foundation also enables our SailPoint Crew members to have their philanthropic contributions stretch even farther with donor matching.
