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 a TV screen and, if you catch us at lunch, you'll see the entire office sitting down to enjoy lunch with one another. We work hard every day but we always make time to spend together.


Product + Growth

What does your typical day look like?

I am excited to work each day with a cross-functional team of intelligent, curious, drive and hilarious group of people. We’re working hard — and growing quickly — but we have a lot of laughs together, and a lot of respect for one another. It’s motivating and empowering.


Content Team

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.
