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


    If you love to work at a place where good ideas, hard work, a fast pace, team work as well as independence all lead to success, you'll find all of it here. Great people, good perks (health insurance 100% covered, food, casual work environment, and many work-life balance benefits). Some pros: 1. Consistently voted one of the best places to work in Seattle - and for a good reason 2. Free orca pass - i haven't had to drive at all! and i use it on weekends and outside work hours. 3. Exposure to amazing projects 4. Z talks 5. transparency from the top down 6. Growth opportunities 7. Zillow encourages volunteerism, charity work and more at a grassroots level 8. All the zillow parties, happy hours and other fun activities 9. Work life balance is respected, but when the need arises, everyone is happy to work as long and as hard as needed 10. Positive inclusive culture and 11. Amazing leadership team with women at the top!


    No pets allowed at the seattle building... but that's not zillow's fault! Need to see more ethnic diversity in the leadership

    Advice to Management

    Hire more engineers and more tech/customer support people! It seems like everyone is always backlogged and while we move fast and think big, our teams can't keep up with the demands and maintain high quality work. As we grow it's important to grow the backbone too! Other than that, it's amazing to see what people can do, how hard and smart they work: perfect example has been the latest IotT project! Amazing what was accomplished by so many teams across the country in such a short time!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zillow (New York, NY).


    The interview was very smooth and quick. I had two over-the-phone and one in-person with two employees. The in-person interview was very organic; like a regular conversation. The overly experience was pleasant.
