Why We Exist
To captivate and connect people with stories they love by creating amazing experiences.

Our Vision
We aspire to be a must-have entertainment & technology brand that is celebrated for continuing to redefine TV.

Our Values
Operating at the intersection of entertainment and technology, Hulu has a unique opportunity to continually redefine TV. As Hulugans, we're inspired by this opportunity and proud of the culture we've built. How we work and how we play (we try to excel at both) are guided by a set of values.

We start with the viewer.
There are few things more rewarding than connecting viewers to stories and experiences they love. We get to do that every day. As a result, our decision-making process always starts with our viewer. That doesn't mean we don't compromise or can't make tough decisions, given the complexities of our business. It means that we know who matters the most to us, and we work hard - with all of our partners - to earn our viewers' trust and loyalty.

We think big.
Redefining TV is an ambitious goal. We believe thinking big requires innovation, passion and unconventional thinking. We like smart risks, and our pioneering spirit means that any Hulugan, in any role, can come up with a great idea and make a difference. Where we work reflects this philosophy: open, office-free, and lots of room for collaborating.

We relentlessly pursue better ways.
Hulu has incredibly high standards, especially when it comes to quality. Our pursuit of a superior viewer experience and exceptional products is driven by intense curiosity and determination to be the best. We love what we do and the products we make, but we're never content.

We are one team.
Like the best ensemble casts of our favorite shows, Hulu is made up of unique and talented individuals. We believe we're successful because those talents work together to collectively create great television and technology. When we make decisions through the lens of Hulu's priorities and in collaboration with each other, we believe we'll succeed as individuals.

Character matters. A lot.
We depend on every Hulugan to work with integrity, act like an owner, and be accountable to our viewers, partners and each other. We do what we say we will. We're not afraid to surface issues and acknowledge when we're wrong, and we trust each other to help us turn challenges into opportunities.

We embrace fun.
We love what we do. We believe we do our best when we enjoy ourselves. Some of the greatest ideas are born through laughter, whether in the photo booth at one of our epic Huluween costume parties or the next morning over brunch-worthy, microwave-hacked scrambled eggs.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People walk around here happy - it's pretty cool.
    I am challenged everyday to do things different and push it to the next level. There are some naysayers and conservatives but very few - and so we try to influence them the best we can and keep driving for excellence.
    It took some time to get a new call to action from our leadership - a new vision for Hulu and finally we have it and we like it and our new leadership did a great job getting our ideas and then getting us on board. They are a likable and smart and ambitious group - which I like and feel we are a team - all of us.
    We have good events and the company is generous. Our office space is awesome and I really like our open and collaborative seating - no offices for anyone even ceo - so people are accessible.

    Cons

    We need more clarity around how we can grow in our careers here and ensuring the right people are in the right jobs. Our managers need to know how to manage, some are strong, others are not - are we holding them accountable? I'm not sure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to gather input from us and include us in the discussions and idea generation.
    keep talking to us and stay visible.
