Do Big Things.

Hard to believe that when it started in 1999, Cornerstone OnDemand was nothing more than
an idea and a whiteboard. Today, that simple idea has grown into a billion dollar
global technology company that’s changing the way the world works.

Being a Cornerstar

We think that’s pretty cool. And we think it’s important, because
that same spirit of collaboration and innovation, that same acute awareness that a few passionate people are capable of accomplishing big things and that small ideas can grow exponentially, lives on at Cornerstone today. We’re not a typical tech company (even with our foosball tables, complimentary food and generous stock options), because, well, our employees aren’t your typical techies.

The culture of Cornerstone

Our mission is to empower people, businesses and communities. A culture created less by what we do and more by who we are. When people are asked to describe the team, the answer is always the same: smart, cool, dependable and visionary.



It doesn’t take long to realize that people who work here are very, very smart. It’s the reason we consistently outperform and constantly evolve. Nobody is ignored and ideas are welcome at all times. One consequence is that we move dynamically. If someone has a good idea, we implement it. Complex problems can be broken down and solved through team collaboration. It’s an environment where you can be challenged, have an opportunity to learn, develop your skills and be very successful.



To us, cool is someone you’d want to have a beer (or meal) with; someone who is interesting and fun. We have people who would be considered cool in any group, at every age. We also have people who were not necessarily part of the popular crowd in their high school, but are definitely well-rounded, self-confident, creative and interesting.


We believe the most dependable people are those who are willing to take initiative and are self-empowered. The expectation of our team is to make our clients successful, so we have to have people who can be depended upon. People who are responsive, proactive, reliable and able to provide exceptional service while earning the trust and respect of both our clients and our teammates.



To continue our success in leading the market with state-of-the-art solutions, we must be innovative and resourceful. Capable not simply of thinking outside of the box but of actually redesigning the scope and scale of the box itself.

"I started as a developer and over the last several years I have had the opportunity to advance my career to the Senior level I am now, leading a team of over 50 people. I have also had a chance to see Cornerstone grow into the largest LA based tech company it is now. A lot of that has to do with the amazing team we have in place."

Khoa- Lead Product Manager

"As a recent UCLA grad, I was ready to take on the tech world and create amazing product. Cornerstone gave me the opportunity to push my vision forward and really make a difference. I also got tons of rewards and recognition along the way!"
