Our Guiding Principles

The following principles guide how Pilot navigates across all three levels of our business — at an individual level, as an organization, and with our clients.


As individuals, we care about our coworkers as people rather than as colleagues.

As an organization, Pilot is committed to the relationships it has built with employees, clients, and in our community.

With our clients, we connect with the people behind the business.


As individuals, we recognize our own intrinsic value through working here — the work we do helps us to achieve a sense of purpose professionally.

As an organization, Pilot values the parts that make up the whole. We recognize the thoughts, opinions, and contributions of our team.

With our clients, we work hard to demonstrate the value of our work, and the impact it makes for their business.


As individuals, we have the agency to do the type of work we prefer, to learn new skills we’re interested in, and to blaze our own career paths.

As an organization, Pilot is run by its employees, giving it the agency to move the company in a direction that’s agreeable to most.

With our clients, we give them the agency to make better marketing decisions.
