Ripl’s Commitment to Our Team’s Growth and Development

We are proud of our culture. Our cultural foundations are empathy and respect. We hire people, not roles. We value emotion, not just rationality. We value diversity over superficial conformity; we refuse to bucket, stereotype, or discriminate. We choose passionate freedom over poorly spent authority. We choose alignment over fear-driven command-and-control systems. We seek alignment in all we do: with our customers, the business, our teammates, and our individual selves. We endeavor to design our culture—we nurture it so that it nurtures us. Our goal is an ecology of ideas, where the best idea is always adopted, regardless of its source. To this we commit, as a team, with the fullest possible sincerity and intention.

Come and join us as we build a company that innovates; a company that treasures team, collaboration, and individuals; and a company that provides freedom and camaraderie for people who are effective and passionate.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
