What We Value

We’re revolutionizing tech recruitment. So we question everything, because the best answers sit just to the right of a question mark. That’s our heritage as a disruptive company — as a company whose future depends on our capacity to innovate with a sense of drive, purpose and urgency. If you join Built In, you will work from this set of values:

  • Be Unreasonably Passionate. Our passion is borderline obsessive, and we’re ok with that. No one ever built anything great on a “meh.” We work with outsized passion to fulfill our mission.
  • Be Humble. You don’t have all the answers. Luckily, you don’t have to. Don’t worry about being right. Be humble instead. 
  • Stay Curious. Curiosity is a springboard to the future. It can transform the wisp of an idea into a breakthrough. We ask “what if.” We work with wonder. It’s how we innovate.
  • Lead with Solutions. Question everything. But offer solutions as you do. Raise issues. But propose a few answers. For every hole you poke, offer a way to patch it up. 
  • Own the Result. We have no time for blame or shame. When you stumble, own it, learn from it + get back to business. 
  • Do More. Do more than your job description. Take initiative. Take charge. No job is beneath you, and no job is too big. Be a leader and do more — do whatever it takes.
  • Be Inclusive, Always. We’re committed to a culture where all people are respected, have a say and can be their whole selves. We will uplift and advocate for one another. Always.

Research shows that women and other marginalized groups tend to apply to roles only when they check every point on a job description. We encourage you to apply if you meet the majority of qualifications and this role is aligned with your career trajectory.

An Insider's view of Built In

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Good vibes are a top priority around here. You'll hear music played from our playlist that the entire company co-builds, you'll see a movie streaming on TV and, if you catch us at lunch, you'll see the entire office sitting at our communal table. We work hard every day but we always make time to spend together.

Adam

VP, Growth

What does your typical day look like?

My days start with a quick team sync in the morning. There are usually some calls scheduled with others to collaborate on the CI/CD pipelines or another project. My time is split between management work and implementation work. It’s so encouraging when everybody is willing to pair to sort out a problem or get on a quick call to provide context.

Sam

Lead Site Reliability Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Success means more here. It not only is being noticed by my team but it positively impacts Built In’s overall results. Our team is made of strong individuals working together to build our revolutionary platform

Samantha

Enterprise Account Executive

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The new business team has a big impact on strategy, so it’s important to cultivate creativity and innovation. In our “Idea Friday" meetings, we share new ways to sell — and “anything goes.” The ideas can be great or totally unrealistic, because it’s about sparking creativity. The best part is that some of these ideas have shaped our strategy.

Emma

VP, Sales

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Working at Built In is a digital marketer's dream (It is for me anyway). Each day I leverage relationships across the organization to solve complex problems with creative solutions, support our diverse team of content creators, and collaborate with data & analytics to find insights that will make Built In's online presence even more engaging.

Daniel

Digital Marketing Manager
