Jobvite – Why Work For Us?


We’re all about endless innovation in recruiting. Period.

Since 2003, Jobvite has set the bar in best-of-breed recruiting technology. We began by bringing the power of social media to employee referrals and job posting strategies. Then, as we saw the direction the global workforce was headed (think STEM jobs and Millennials), we moved forward with a plan to provide a more comprehensive, advanced, and positive experience for recruiters and jobseekers alike. Because here’s the thing: While both groups have different needs, they all crave the same advantages. Ease of use. Intuitive functionality. More mobility and convenience.

So that’s what we’re working on—and we’re proud to say we are leading the pack. Our award-winning SaaS solutions are in use by over 1000 customers around the world. We have no plans to slow down. And we hope you’ll join us.


We don’t make it complicated. If you work at Jobvite, you commit to getting things done. We’re small and we keep that start-up feeling intact.

But you don’t just work at Jobvite. You play. You chill. You build. You chat. You eat. You have ideas—and you see them through. Working at Jobvite means being part of a family and part of a team, and all of the growth and discussion and progress that those things entail.

It doesn’t hurt that we just secured another $25M in funding. And we have a really, really cool new superhero themed office, too. You should check it out.


Wondering how we compare when it comes to perks? Here’s the rundown:

  • We’ve got all the standard (well, above standard) medical, dental, and vision benefits. We do all the life insurance and disability coverage, too. And flexible spending accounts—because those are just plain smart.
  • We really like it when our employees are healthy and stress-free, so we offer gym reimbursements and generous holidays/paid time off.
  • We don’t want you struggling to get here or hassled by transportation costs, so we have a flex spending discount for commuters, free parking (of course), and company-paid Uber rides between the office and Caltrain.
  • We like our employees to feel at home, so we have a pretty awesome kitchen, lounge, and game room. And we use them a lot.
  • Dull is not something we do well. Instead, we keep things creative with frequent social events, team activities, and happy hours.
  • Fuel your engine. We offer a fully stocked kitchen with breakfast, snacks, refreshments and fresh fruit. Lunch is served every Monday & Wednesday during our exciting and motivating All Hands Meetings.
  • Did we mention we love awards? We like getting them, and we like giving them. Our employees earn recognition for their noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding performance.

There’s no place like Jobvite.

The Jobvite culture is about achieving balance for the sake of delivering results. In other words, we believe work matters—but we also believe that rest sparks creativity. When it counts, we throw ourselves full-force into the projects at hand. And when we need it, we take a breather and reflect on all we’ve accomplished. We work hard, play hard, and succeed big

    I have been working at Jobvite full-time (More than a year)


    The word I use to best describe Jobvite is "unique." Not because we have a company mascot, a dog named Pancake, that trolls the office for food. Not because we are a diverse group where being at least "a little weird" is a requirement for recruiting in pretty much every department. Not because we celebrate a different holiday almost every week with food (so much food). Although these statements are all true, these aren't the reason why I would call Jobvite "unique." I learned that Jobvite is a completely unique organization very much the hard way: I left. I pursued another role, something completely different from what I was doing at Jobvite. It took me a few short weeks to realize that Jobvite is unlike any other company in Silicon Valley and that, in the words of every Bluth on the show Arrested Development, "I've made a huge mistake." I sat around moping for awhile. I thought about asking for my job back a million times, being held back by the idea that I didn't think they would give me another shot. Finally, one day, I thought I'd take my chances. After long discussions and conversations with management, I was offered the job back. I couldn't have been more thrilled. Every single company has its low points, its high points, and a mediocre run. The thing about Jobvite is that during every phase of its growth and development, it has had managers that care deeply about the employees. I have never felt less like a "cog in the machine" in my life because each person contributes greatly to the moving pieces that propel this company forward at a fast-growing rate. It took me a long, roundabout route to come to this revelation, but I am now a full believer in the amazing path down which this company is going. If you're looking for a humble but forceful company that will make you feel like a creative, well-valued employee, you should accept that offer letter right now. Hope to see you soon.


    The downsides are what every company faces in a fast-paced environment. If you believe in the product and the direction the company is going, you'll fit in just fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum.

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Jobvite.


    Phone Interview started 10min. Sourcer/Recruiter seemed cold and un-interested in chatting. She couldn't give good answers about the competitive space. There were no details about the team, why i should be moving and what makes Jobvite special
