About Ranker:

Ranker is the definitive site for votable content on just about everything… from The Best TV Shows to Binge-Watch to The Social Issues You Care About Most. With half of our 50M UV’s coming from search and a half from social, we have a deeply engaged audience, voting 21x and spending 5.5 minutes per visit. That’s more than E!, Vox and R29 combined.

Ranker sits at the intersection of passion and curiosity with rankings on nearly any topic from film to food. By voting on different list items, fans influence rankings on topics like “The Best TV Shows to Binge-Watch” or “The Best Quarterback of All Time.” We also provide in-depth reporting on history, crime, and mysteries, broken up into easily digestible chunks that tell a cohesive story. Ranker is often a source for journalists, whether it is quoting a #1 ranking or reporting on a true crime story.

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.

Amanda Bennett

Audience Development Specialist

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.

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!
