Our most flexible and default option, flex mode means you’ll have a dedicated desk at our brand new HQ. Enjoy the perks of being in office and work from home two days a week.
* Some roles will still need to be Chicago-based, flex mode roles.
Built In’s focus is to unite tech talent and the tech industry - nationally, locally, and remotely. Today, many of our jobs are now posted as fully remote and we invite you to join our diverse, national team.
Candidates like you value benefits that improve your life, not outdated perks like beer on tap. In addition to fundamental offerings like comprehensive healthcare and a 401(k) company match, we provide opportunities to grow as both a professional and human being, like through a continuing education stipend.
AN ABIDING COMMITMENT:
We’re changing tech recruitment by making it human. So we innovate with a sense of drive, urgency and purpose. But no matter how hard we work, our core values keep us centered on what matters most.
We’re committed to a culture where all people are respected, have a say and can be their whole selves. We uplift and advocate for one another. Always.
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.
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.
Curiosity is a springboard to the future. It can transform the wisp of an idea into a full-blown breakthrough. We ask “what if.” We work with wonder. It’s how we innovate.
We have no time for blame or shame. When you stumble, own it, learn from it and get back to business.
You don’t have all the answers. Luckily, you don’t have to. Don’t worry about being right, be humble instead.
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.
WHERE ARE YOU GROWING?
Our human-centered leadership team creates space for people to work autonomously, but they’re the first to step in, with empathy, and provide support when needed. Their fuel? Passion, resilience, humility and transparency.

Built In helps some of the most innovative companies you know of attract otherwise hard-to-hire tech talent. We leverage the power of content and digital solutions to amplify customers’ brands, telling stories of their cultures and tech. Along with our news and trend coverage, these stories draw 2.5 million tech professionals monthly. When they discover companies with missions they believe in, they’re inspired to apply.
We hire strategically and according to our core values, evaluating talent not only against the core competencies of a given role, but how that role, and the whole human within it, could grow with the business in two to three years. We see not just the skills on your resume now, but those you could add later.
You’ll meet our recruiter by phone before moving on to Zoom interviews with a hiring manager and/or varied team members. The interview process often includes practical work or a project, which you’ll submit for review. If the stars align, we conclude with a final interview, reference check and offer letter.
These are all the same company: Built In. Every employee here works for Built In, even if their job focuses in some way on one of the eight markets we serve (and counting). We do add city names after “Built In” when we give users a local experience. But that’s an identifier, not a different company. When you join us, you join Built In.
We suggest researching the business and people with whom you’re interviewing. More than that, come ready to share your experience, passions and values in an authentic way.
Every new hire goes through a hybrid onboarding process that includes both company and role-specific training. Throughout your first 30, 60 and 90 days, you’ll become a learner, contributor and owner. Our onboarding process sets you up for success and for a smooth transition into Built In for long-term impact, with a performance review upon completion of your first 90 days.
In addition to consistent 1:1’s with your manager and team, we have an ongoing goal-setting Human Development Plan with all employees. We also have a $500 annual L&D stipend for all employees to use for continued education and professional development.
Built In pays competitively for top talent. When we fill a role, and during our annual compensation review, our VP of People does a deep compensation analysis, including researching market rates. Compensation is evaluated annually, and employees are eligible for promotion every 6 months or based on new business needs.
When you work at Built In, you contribute to the success of some of the most exciting, innovative companies — companies that are part of culture and life. At the same time, your work will change the lives of the tech professionals who visit the site to discover jobs they were born to do.
