Our Culture

Esper has fostered a culture built on our four core values

mission driven

Ruthless optimism

We are resiliently positive in pursuit of our mission to be the system of record for policymaking in government.

Continuous improvement

We prioritize regularly evaluating what’s working and what isn’t in order to execute on our mission at the highest level.

Resolution-driven icon


We approach challenges with the goal of seeking solutions rather than dwelling on problems.

I joined Esper to be a part of a nimble team where I could have a big impact on both a growing company and an underserved sector. Since starting, it has been an absolute pleasure to develop and deploy software that makes the daily lives of our customers so much easier. The sense of a tangible positive impact that you are responsible for is not a feeling you can get from every engineering organization.
