We are Plato

Our Values

Values make up the lifeblood of an organization, and these are part of what makes us Plato. If you’re taking a peek to learn more, or potentially interested in joining us, we’d love for you to read what we’ve laid out below.

All people first

People are at the heart of all we do at Plato—they are the fuel that makes this organization run. We take delight in this adventure we’re on, and always embrace the unknown. From our clients and Plato Mentors, to our fellow team members, we are driven by giving these people joy, and are constantly on the hunt for new ways to do so.

Impactful at scale

We’ll just come out and say it: we’re ambitious and results driven. A lot of people are, but we take it a step further. We believe it’s not simply enough to be impactful - we want to impact as many people as we can. To do this, we use advances in technology thoughtfully, taking the resources we have, to build the future we want to see. We are constantly in search of new ones that will further our mission without slowing us down.

Always be growing

We wholeheartedly believe in the power of potential - in having a curious mind and always moving forward. As an individual, and a company, a key mission at Plato is creating this environment for growth. We believe the two are intertwined. How you grow on an emotionally intelligent level is just as important to us as how we’re growing as a business. We look for this characteristic in everyone we hire, and it’s how we encourage and challenge each other to grow and learn. We embrace failure, learn from our mistakes - sharing them openly, and we delight in those unexpected moments of clarity that come from it.

  • •  Where are you going to be a year from now vs. today?

Move fast

At Plato, we’re moving at the “speed of fleeting.” We build fast, break things fast, and believe that every experience is an opportunity to learn. We’re experimental by nature, and always looking to keep the momentum going. We trust our fellow team members to try out new ideas, and we believe in taking ownership over those ideas.
