We Help You Grow Relationships Through Data. 

Growth is the lifeblood of business, and its most fundamental driver is the relationships a company fosters with prospects, customers and partners.

Over nearly two centuries of helping businesses understand this dynamic, we have honed the expertise of how data and analytics forge the relationships that lead to industry-leading performance. To activate these capabilities, we build – or co-develop with partners – solutions tailored to your role, whether you are in marketing, sales, finance, supply, compliance or information technology. And we deliver this content however you want to consume it.

Our platform’s foundation is the world’s largest commercial database, with over 240 million company records we derive from 30,000 data sources and update 5 million times per day. We integrate this insight into your core systems, workflows and cloud-based apps in ways that enhance their impact, and we also integrate with your existing data and third-party data sources. Our DUNSRight® process gives us the unmatched ability to turn an enormous stream of data into the high-quality information you need to grow your most valuable relationships. 

We offer a wide range of solutions for Risk & Finance, Operations & Supply, Sales and Marketing professionals. And some of the largest, most successful technology and service companies in the world embed Dun & Bradstreet data within their offerings. These companies include SalesForce, Oracle, KPMG and SAP.

We Have Served Diverse Organizations for Nearly Two Centuries.

From banking to high-tech, from retail to energy, more than 34,000 companies and 87% of the Fortune 500 trust Dun & Bradstreet to provide critical data and insights they need to create every-day connections with their most valuable constituents. Here are just a few examples: 

  • A global telecommunications company generated $70 million in contract value in just two years by mobilizing field sales with real-time actionable insight on prospects and customers.
  • Using our "Instant Credit" process, a Fortune 500 company revolutionized its credit risk decision-making. In two years, it evaluated 70,000 customers, approved more than $1.4 billion in credit limits and achieved $200 million in sales to customers approved through the process. 
  • For more than 20 years, the U.S. Federal Government has relied on Dun & Bradstreet, the DUNS® Number and critical data and insights to facilitate timely evaluations of, and awards to, all contractors conducting business across the global government procurement process.  
  • Our analytics enable a 30-percent reduction in supply chain risk and a 15-percent reduction in costs to certify potential vendors and partners.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (more than 5 years)


    Growth and innovation are the watchwords. New CEO has brought new leadership, added roles that had formerly been missing (Global leaders of HR and Marketing), defined key strategic initiatives (hills), and continues to reaffirm that we're all in this together and everyone's contribution is both encouraged and required. Those who engage and communicate thoughtfully have ample opportunities for contribution and growth. Those who fail to step up are easily identified and do not last long.


    The company seems like it's been in a 1980s/90s outsourcing and financial engineering death spiral since the 1980s or 1990s. There is a fair amount of hangover from that time, but the new leadership and strategy are redefining the culture and not looking back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and keep moving. I and many others are engaged and pulling with and for you. We appreciate your support and contribution. This is working. I've been in a few acquisitions and turnarounds, and this is the most exciting place and time I've ever worked.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Dun & Bradstreet in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I started here as an intern - that "interview" process was great. Got in, no problem. Short notice to start, but I didn't care.

    After the internship was over I was offered a full time position. Kind of. I was up for hire, told I would be hired, but had to wait around for about a month before being told to apply for the position. As my hiring manager after that was my previous manager, the interview was more of a formality than anything. We both knew I could do what was needed because I had been doing it for six months already. The process was, more than anything, frustrating as my peers who had started their internship earlier (and thus were up for hire earlier) did not have to go through the same process - they just signed papers and were off and away - but due to some changes in leadership the process changed. This is fine, of course, but nobody knew what the process had changed to. That was less fine.
