Our Culture

The collective personality of our company that will determine our destiny

Steve Smith - Equinix CEO

The Magic of Equinix is the collective personality of our company. It's not just our culture and values, it's the behavior of our leaders and everyone in our organization. It’s the "secret sauce" at the heart of our competitive advantage, and something our competitors can never copy. It's the intangible that captures the imagination and energy of our people, and makes us more collaborative, more creative and more open-minded.

—Steve Smith, CEO
