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.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Trulia.Interview Details
Had initial phone call with hiring manager and was asked to come in for in-person interview. Interviewed with two sales managers, both of which were long-term employees of both Trulia and Market Leader. The person leading the interview asked what I thought of Trulia and as I mentioned a person who worked their I started to say "they seem to like it" but before I could finish my sentence was told "not to compare myself with _____" which I found somewhat offensive. They were also very adamant about me speaking like a normally would to a friend, asking somewhat odd questions to see how I would react. They both also made it clear that they track the times you work and go on breaks despite being on salary (which is lower than average) with a subtle expectation that you be passionate and loyal to the company before even being hired. I asked about employee retention as well as criticism about their business model and they seemed to get a bit defensive (news flash: I am interviewing your company just like you are interviewing me). I tried to keep the tone positive throughout, but overall, not a great experience. I definitely got the feeling they use sales people here, demanding long hours, high results and a high amount of brand loyalty.Interview Questions
