Our values

Every Sisenser embodies our five core values. If this sounds like the kind of people you want to be around, you’ve come to the right place!

Bias for Action

"Bias for action" is one of our key principles at Sisense, stressing the need for quick, decisive actions in business. It promotes acting on the best information at hand rather than waiting for full certainty, aiming to prevent "analysis paralysis" that can slow innovation. This approach encourages calculated risk-taking and learning from the results rather than impulsive decisions.


Our commitment extends beyond professional development to genuinely caring for our team members' well-being. Our culture is built on support and equity, and we advocate for excellence, ensuring it goes hand-in-hand with resilience, respect for personal boundaries, and self-care.


We align our strategy with a comprehensive understanding of our customers' unique challenges and goals, tailoring our technology to drive their innovations forward. Together, we transform ambitions into achievements through a symbiotic relationship, committed to continual learning and adapting to serve their evolving needs better.


Inclusivity means creating a welcoming, valued, and respectful environment, thus, enhancing organizational performance, innovation, and employee satisfaction. We ensure all voices are heard, actively encouraging open communication. This approach fosters a sense of connection, belonging, and collaboration for our collective success.


Embracing the "disruptor" mindset, we promote innovation and critical thinking as core elements of our culture. We're dedicated to continual learning, staying ahead of trends, and fostering a work environment where questioning and open communication are encouraged.
