Why You Should or Shouldn’t Apply




  • We are a private company with zero intention of going public. This means that we have the freedom to chart our own course regarding our product offerings, our R&D priorities, and our authentic, humble, and diverse company culture. If you are looking for stock options or an "exit," you’ll be disappointed.



  • We prefer long-term employees and invest in and support our people in order to earn their loyalty. If you're looking for a short-term gig we discourage you from applying.



  • A genuine interest in cloud-based software is integral to your success at Zoho. If you don’t enjoy (enterprise) software, you won't enjoy the work.



  • We care most about an individual's flexibility, values, and ambition. If job titles and status are your main concerns, this isn't the place for you.



  • Individuals who can learn on the job and do independent research as needed are most successful at Zoho. Self-starters piece together the Zoho ecosystem best and fastest. If you're willing to jump in and learn on the job, you will be a great fit.



  • We consciously eschew the "cool tech-company" vibe because we value work-life balance and a down-to-earth company culture. If a flashy campus or downtown office is important to you, you’ll likely be disappointed.



  • We are a low-ego company. Overall, the people at Zoho have high expectations about doing great work, job satisfaction, and long-term work-life balance, and low expectations about hierarchy, status, and clout.





The most successful Zoho team members are:




  • At home in a diverse, multicultural workplace




  • Quick on their feet

  • Flexible and patient, with an "all hands on deck" attitude
