We are often asked the question "What's it like to work at Hulu?" To which we typically reply: "Well, it is a bit different." How so? Take a read of the below document, which gives a transparent view into the kind of company that Hulu is and aspires to be. Written collectively by the team, "What Defines Hulu?" summarizes our culture, offering a window into how we make decisions and the things we consider important. It's not motherhood and apple pie; there are things about Hulu's culture that many talented people would find quite challenging and not for them. By laying out our culture for all to see, we hope to attract people who are inspired by our culture and — as importantly — to save the time of others who are not inspired by Hulu's admittedly different perspective. We realize we're odd birds and not for everyone.
We have always believed that, if we're good caretakers, Hulu's culture has the potential to be our most valuable asset. In our experience, culture is one of the few things that cannot be copied and is extremely difficult to change once set. As a start-up, Hulu is in the fortunate position to create and nurture a culture that's custom-suited to the mission before us.
Given that a person's fit with a given culture is so important to success, we invite you to take Hulu's culture for a test drive below.
