The Solera Way

Solera’s uncommon culture is based on three simple principles: 80/20 (Focus), 30/30 (Efficiency), and 90/10 (accountability). Our mindset is also defined by the 3H’s: Humility, a Hunger to succeed, and a desire to Hunt for opportunities to win. Underscored by our fundamental belief in continuous change and innovation, the Solera Way has allowed us to become a global technology leader that is constantly growing in the double digits.

 

Our Space

We believe that offices should be destinations where people want to be… places where people want to work, play and, collaborate. That is why we spend a lot of time on enhancing our workspaces. Solera’s work environments are intersections of the old and the new… of the past, present, and future. They are spaces designed to stimulate creative thinking, innovation, and cross-functional collaboration.

 

We also embrace wellness. Whether it is our onsite or offsite workout centers, nutritional meals and beverages, or endless snacks for focus and energy. This wellness plan is our commitment to healthy living, which spans across our office environments.
