We're built on big data
We ingest billions of records every month from a variety of public sources.
And organize that data by linking individual records to create an intricate contact graph of names, phone numbers and addresses.
This graph gives our users access to the most accurate & robust dataset of contact information in North America.
Why we love it here
We're a small company with a big vision, and we work as a cohesive team to make that vision a reality. We don't believe in mind-numbing org charts or office politics. But we do believe in taking risks, working hard and having lots and lots of fun.
Think fast, act fast
Even though Whitepages has been profitable for over a decade, we've never lost our startup spirit. We focus on shared goals, rather than individual aspirations, and as a result we make every effort to collaborate across teams, operate with complete transparency and never let red tape get in the way of agile development & speedy product iteration.
Small team, big impact
We reach over 50 million monthly users and manage billions of data points with just 130 employees, which means we each have a direct impact on the health of our business and the end user. Our small size also means we're each expected to think two steps ahead at all times, stay on the bleeding edge of technology and make recommendations that drive product decisions.
The best people, period
Our teammates hail from the best schools and companies in the world, and we're not shy about investing in the continued growth of our employees with tuition reimbursement, peer learning and a substantial educational stipend. You won't find a weak link in our midst, because each and every one of us thrives on camaraderie, hard work and smart risks.

I have been working at WhitepagesPros
I have been with Whitepages for four months now and am really enjoying the company so far. The work life balance is excellent, and the perks of the Seattle office are the best I have seen in a company yet. We have a full bar and three kegs on tap, a masseuse three days a week, almost any kind of food/drink you can think of, and an annual employee trip to a fun destination each year. Did I mention bean bags and hammocks everywhere? Long story short, the office is a very creative space that allows employees to not feel congested with sitting at their desk starting at an interior wall all day. (All desks are on the outside perimeter of the office floor, so you have a view.)Cons
The training program when I started was lacking structure. Since November, it has significantly improved and you can always find a friendly coworker willing to answer any questions you might have.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep up with the good work and excellent product launches, but lets watch our growth over the next year. Adding to many employees to fast when you do not have the correct tools in place for them to succeed could hurt the overall business; while it also dilutes employee resources.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
