PortSwigger Culture

PortSwigger Culture

Culture eats everything for breakfast.

Our culture is our most important superpower, and our biggest differentiator as an organization.

We're proud of our culture, and fiercely protective of it.

a map of how the culture operates at PortSwigger

  • Have fun. Think of all the things that can prevent work being fun. They generally come down to bad culture: disrespect, hoarding information and assets, command-and-control management, selfishness, organizational politics, lack of integrity, dysfunctional backstabbers, over-promoted under-performers. Our culture is the antidote to all these things.

  • Have a worthwhile mission. Our mission is a hugely ambitious goal that we won't achieve easily or quickly. Our culture enables us to stay aligned to this mission, by focusing on the long term, holding the vision, working together very collaboratively, and defaulting to open communication.

  • Be successful. Our culture creates the conditions for our success. We're uncompromising in only recruiting the best people. We create an environment of trust, openness, and freedom to fail, which fosters innovation. Our servant leadership brings out the best in all our people, recognizes their potential, and enables continuous learning. This is how we achieve the incredible.

  • Be a force for good in the world. Delivering amazing products and services certainly makes the world a better place. But our culture means that we are also instinctively generous, giving away much more than we need to. We directly improve the lives of our people and numerous others. We do this as an end in itself, not as a cynical means to profit.
