An Insider's view of Spokeo

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The key thing that we do well is transparency. We share all stats (good and bad), and we go a step beyond just sharing information by providing context to promote understanding. We always endeavor to be authentic and true to our core values.

Harrison

CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Everyone is very accessible. Anytime I am working with other departments (which is often), I just walk over and have a face to face or send a quick message.

Brady

Customer Experience Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

"We try to invest in the long term for our teammates' careers. We want to see them grow and develop and we actively set growth goals for each individual teammate. Our team is small enough so every member can make a big impact quickly, while still being large enough to allow specialization."

Byron Wang

Vice President of Engineering

What is your vision for the company?

I see Spokeo continuing to strive to be a forward-thinking technology company that delivers people data and helps our customers use people data intelligently.
