What is your team mission?

OpenAI’s mission is to ensure that artificial intelligence benefits all of humanity. Product Design helps deploy our advanced AI systems into the world by building great products, and Communications Design tells our story to the world through our website and everything else visual.

What values does your team share?

Our team values are reflected in our design values:

  • Gravitas: Reflect the seriousness of our commitment to safety.

  • Precision: Reflect the expertise, rigor, and excellence behind our work.

  • Approachable: Reflect our impact on humanity and all that we do to empower people.

  • Allure: Reflect the wonder and awe in the technology and our messy, playful 
approach to discovery.

  • Bold: Reflect the scale and scope of what we want to accomplish.

What does your workplace look like?

We’re fortunate to work out of a beautiful office in the Mission District of San Francisco, full of plants and a few (metaphorical) easter eggs.
