Our Values


We work with integrity in everything we do, and embody our principles when working with customers, suppliers and colleagues. We don’t deal in politics, hidden agendas or passive-aggressive behaviour.


We welcome people with different ideas, strengths, interests, and cultural or ethnic backgrounds and firmly believe they make our company better. We encourage healthy debate and differences of opinion.


We treat our colleagues and customers with a standard of performance that is morally right and fair. We make decisions in a equitable way based on appropriate criteria.


We treat people with respect in all dealings, and show respect for their talent, time and opinions. When we disagree, we respectfully and constructively speak our minds, but ultimately work as a team to implement the final decision.


We work together to ensure our individual expertise and skills make InstaDeep the best company it can be.  We recognise that we are stronger together as a team.


We continuously strive for a culture of innovation and improvement.  We value growth and vision, and always challenge the status quo in order to deliver for our customers.
