Hello, we're Ranker
We believe in the wisdom of the crowd, where the opinion of millions is more relevant (and far more predictive) than the opinion of one writer or critic. Visitors to Ranker have now cast over one billion votes shaping our pop culture rankings. This voting data powers a predictive insights platform with multiple applications for brands and studios.
Why Work with Us?
We celebrate passion. Your passion has a place at Ranker and it makes all the difference in the world on the product. If you nerd out on geek culture or go to opening weekend of every Marvel movie or you're interested in going to a "con" whether it's Comic-Con or Bravocon, you will feel right at home here.
An Insider's view of Ranker
How does your team reward individual success?
What I love about being a part of Ranker's Audience Development team is that one person's success is celebrated not just as a personal victory, but as a triumph for our whole team. Every day we are encouraged to step outside of the box and speak our minds; to be creative and analytical without fear of rejection.

What projects are you most excited about?
The best part about working at Ranker is the wide variety in the types of projects we might work on. We could be working on site optimization one week and creating big data management systems the next. Our latest project is a soon-to-be-released TV recommendation app that utilizes the latest in web development and machine learning tech.

How does the company support your career growth?
Ranker offers me the opportunity to flourish in a completely original creative manner. Working here has provided me with the opportunity to cover a large array of subjects I'm passionate about such as pop-culture and entertainment. By treating my voice and skill sets as an asset to the company, I have been given a sense of freedom and growth.
What is your vision for the company?
Our focus for 2020 is expanding Ranker beyond our high-trafficked site (Quantcast Top 50) via growing video, globalization, licensing Rankings IP, growing the Ranker Insights business unit and most importantly, launching a new game-changing personalized TV recommendations app.

What's something quirky about your company?
At Ranker, we are all about votable lists. We even have an enormous, interactive list on display in our lobby — anyone in the office can arrange the items on the list to their own taste. Anything from top sitcom moms to fictional pets you'd love to have, there's always a good debate going on. We even vote on our favorite catered lunches!
