An Insider's view of MyLife.com

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Come in early, leave early. Weekend work is kept to the absolute minimum. No one is here late unless it’s truly necessary. We hire responsible people who are self-starters. No clock punch, no babysitting.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

With a deep respect to each other's domain expertise, which in turn, instills trust within the team. We are an open floor, open access, open mind sort of company so collaboration is a value we prioritize. We simply walk over to someone, grab a chair, and start talking, and we work together to push the ball closer to the finish line.

To help more people live better lives by controlling and improving their reputation through their Background Reports and Reputation Scores. What people think of you determines just about everything in your life –– from love to money.

Jeffrey

CEO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Definitely casual, touch on the quiet side but about as far from boring as you can get. Think of is as laidback business-like. Of course, when soccer is playing in the kitchen it can get a little loud. One of the things everyone loves about the vibe here is how comfortable MyLife is; zen is going too far but relaxed isn’t.
