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. 

Built In is an equal employment opportunity employer and values diversity.  Qualified candidates are considered for employment without regard to race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, military or veteran status, disability, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

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

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I spend most of my days collaborating on cross-functional projects to improve customer outcomes. We want to drive as much value as possible for our customers and our customer success team is the best in the business. I learn something new every day, and I work with intelligent and curious humans.

Arit

Director, Customer Success

What are some things you learned at the company?

It’s pretty remarkable to experience an entire company operating as one team. At Built In, we tackle problems and achieve goals together, sharing in the responsibility of successes and downfalls alike.

Alyssa

SEO Strategist

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 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.
