A Quantcast Top 40 site, reaching 80MM monthly people across platforms, Ranker sits at the intersection of passion and curiosity. Fans passionately vote on rankings they care about across movies, music, gaming and travel to name a few, and they're consumed with learning about topics like history, true crime, mystery and nature. consistently delivers 30MM worldwide unique visitors and outranks nearly every competitive site in minutes spent per visit according to comScore (5+ mins per visit). Visitor engagement is the center of Ranker, with over 1B votes across more than 100K lists including extremely competitive searches like “best movies of all time” (which has over 6.1MM votes alone).

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.

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!
