    Trulia's Nature-Inspired Office | TC Cribs

    This week's Cribs episode brings us to Trulia's newly designed real estate headquarters in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Zillow snatched up the rival real estate site earlier this year in a stock-for-stock purchase of $2.5 billion. But Trulia quietly worked behind the scenes to make its workplace a comfy experience for employees who call the SF office home.

    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.


Trulia – Why Work For Us?

Pete Flint

Pete co-founded Trulia in 2005 and is now a Director on the Zillow Group Board.   He has a strong background in tech and online consumer services and was part of the original launch team for, Europe's largest online travel company. As head of interactive marketing and business development, he helped grow the company to more than 2,000 employees in 12 countries and $1 billion in annual transactions, resulting in the company's acquisition in 2005 by Travelocity.


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 why 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.

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. Startup fire with big company benefits. Want the fast-moving pace of a startup 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 401(k) plan, pre-tax health care spending accounts and a la carte spending to go toward 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 options depending on your needs, budget and general preference. We also offer full dental, vision and life insurance coverage, too.

    One of the biggest reasons I chose Trulia was because of its healthy culture and atmosphere. The company encourages employees to get to know each other, and everyone is easy to talk to. On top of that you're given a lot of responsibility on very interesting work that always feels like it is making an impact.


    I came in almost half a year into the Zillow merger, and while most things have been sorted out there was still a little confusion on how to accomplish certain business tasks. I'm sure this will be sorted with time.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Trulia (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.


    Connected with the recruiter on LinkedIn. Two phone screens, followed by the onsite. It seems like they were searching for a specific person, like Senior Software Engineer in Search with specific set of skills. I clearly mentioned that I am not a senior engineer, but their questions were more focused on the experience with Solr.
