Our values, our culture

Seek First to Understand

We listen carefully and seek to understand others. The most important part of dialogue is the art of listening, therefore allowing our views and thoughts to evolve and adapt.

Take Nothing For Granted

With humble beginnings, we have worked diligently to build a sustainable business with an excellent reputation. We never assume success; we work hard to earn it – every time.

Treat Each Other With Respect

We develop trust and respect through our conduct over time, in varying circumstances. We treat each other with kindness and respect as fellow human beings.

Take the Initiative

We thrive by taking responsibility and being accountable. In the spirit of getting things done and continuously improving, we are all empowered to act.

Make Good Decisions

We make careful, well considered decisions driven by the motivation to do the right thing for our people, our company and our customers. We always act with integrity, honesty, and transparency.

High Impact, Low Drama

With a sense of deep calm, great humour and fun, together, we play to win.

Trineo is proudly a Certified B Corporation, joining the growing number of companies using business as a force for good.

A lot of companies are so willing to sell you a story—join us, work all the time and buy into the dream. Trineo doesn’t pitch to people that way. We set up a workplace that’s balanced, that looks out for you. It’s good because it’s achievable, not aspirational. It’s the truth of what we have right now.

Pete Nicholls


The team put careful thought into laying the path for me to become a developer through an apprenticeship model. I have learned front and back end languages and frameworks and improved my public speaking. Most importantly, I have learned the value of working in a focussed, skilled and supportive team of intelligent, creative and kind people.

Sarah Hay


My team is a collective of intelligent, capable people who are the best barometer of risk, reward and evolutionary progress. Their happiness correlates directly with the quality of our work and the happiness of our clients. They are therefore my first priority and we regularly see each other in person and communicate remotely via standups and 1:1s.

Abhinav Keswani

Co-founder & CEO/CTO, Trineo

Trineo was supportive of me taking time off after each kid was born. When I had family health issues, the response from everyone was universal, "You do what you need to. How can I help?" Family is important to everyone here.
