Our team of energized and happy brainiacs is made up of diverse interests and personalities. We've got semi-pro athletes, ping-pong enthusiasts, avid surfers, chicken farmers, jugglers, knitters and everything in between. But we share one common focus: making killer products that will improve the really hard and potentially un-fun process of finding the right place to live.

There are so many reasons that working here is great, but we've narrowed it to the top three:

1. There's always something awesome happening. No matter what is being built, we're hard at work figuring out what the next big thing is going to be. Knowing that there's always some innovation on the way keeps this place buzzing. Plus, consistently seeing ridiculous month-on-month user growth doesn't hurt the excitement factor!

2. We're good people. When it comes to hiring, we've adopted a strict "no jerks" rule. Our culture is open and friendly, and not to be trifled with, no matter your level of talent. Whether we are planning projects or grabbing a keg-fresh beer on our roof deck, we genuinely like each other. Who doesn't like that?

3. Start-up fire with big company benefits. Want the fast-moving pace of a start-up with the perks of a company that has been around the block? Us, too. We know that the laundry list of super competitive pay, stock, snacks in the kitchen, and appreciation for a job well done are baseline requirements, so we go way beyond. Investing back into our team's success and future is our goal. Matching 401(k), fully paid medical/dental/vision coverage, multiple flexible spending accounts, and a legit maternity and paternity plan. We've got it all...and then some.

Work Perks
Being a Trulian comes with perks like covering your parking and commuting expenses, free yoga classes, in-office massages, gym membership discounts, parental leave benefits and more (including an in-house kegerator)!

Money Goodies
Other than your bi-weekly paycheck, there are also a lot of financial benefits of working at Trulia to sweeten the deal even more, including a 401k plan, Pre-Tax Healthcare spending accounts and A La Carte spending to go towards any health, education or gym expenses that we hadn't completely covered already.

Health Benefits
At Trulia you'll have a choice of health insurance providers depending on your needs, budget and just general preference. We also offer full dental, vision and life insurance coverage too.

    Pros

    The culture is probably the best part about Trulia -- the people are an absolute joy to work with. Various events like engineering lunches, parties, company trips, and the overall attitude makes coming to work easy, even when the work can be challenging. As an intern, you're treated like a full-time employee and not like a kid. This doesn't mean you're expected to know everything, though, as the entire internship is a learning experience. Would definitely recommend for a first internship experience.

    Cons

    As the first group of interns, the internship projects were somewhat unorganized, but that was somewhat expected.

    Advice to Management

    The buyout by Zillow somewhat disappointed some people, but make sure to continue to emphasize how much you value your Trulians.

    Office Space: Trulia office design is rooted in community, trees

    Trulia's South of Market office draws its design inspiration from a tree. All that arboreal influence stems from the fact that the real estate website sees itself as a place where people find homes, build and strengthen their communities one ring at a time, from the inside out - like a tree, according to senior manager of communications Matt Flegal.
