The Hacker Pledge v1.0

The Hacker Pledge is a public commitment from a company to provide a hacker-friendly workplace for its employees so they can thrive and continue improving their skills, to their common benefit.

The pledge

As a company, we pledge to support:

  1. Initiative & curiosity

We expect hackers to be creative, contribute product ideas, and challenge the status quo. We encourage them to read tech news, explore new software, and attend a few events a year on work time to keep their skills up-to-date.

  1. High-productivity working conditions

We let hackers choose the best tools available, both software and hardware. To avoid interrupts and foster high-quality work, we provide an environment as calm and stress-free as possible.

  1. Openness & freedom of speech

We encourage our staff to share ideas and knowledge about technology through meetups and exchanges with other hackers, while respecting the company's expectations for confidentiality.

  1. Giving back to the community

Given how essential Free Software is to a hacker's work, we strive to give back by contributing upstream, open-sourcing internal projects, and sponsoring conferences or community organizations.

F.A.Q

How to contribute

This is a community-driven project, and we welcome all contributions directly on GitHub as Pull Requests on the README.md file. Please explain the rationale behind your ideas a bit more than you would for a regular PR though ;)

(Contributions on wording & style are also welcome.)

We will get a panel of highly respected hackers to act as moral authority in case of unresolved debates.
