Affinity – Why Work For Us?

What we value

We care personally for each other.

We recognize that our teammates are people who have strengths, weaknesses, dreams & life stories. We take the time to better understand where they come from, and know that this makes for better collaboration on the difficult problems we have to solve. We also actively express our appreciation for the hard work our teammates do.

We are playmakers.

We are team players who empower our teammates to do their best work. We are not afraid to step outside the scope of our roles if it will help the team win.

We take pride in what we do.

We care deeply about delivering exceptional work and we take ownership over our results. This makes us an extremely passionate, driven, and resilient group. For all of us here at Affinity, our work is not just a means to an end: we derive tremendous fulfillment from putting our very best into our work.

We are radically open-minded.

We value ideas over titles. We believe that the best ideas can come from anywhere, both within and outside our company. This means we’re unafraid to speak our thoughts, seek help from peers, and receive feedback with an open mind. Seeking truth is our ultimate goal - and we’re ready to change our minds based on data.

We are obsessed with learning.

We are dedicated learners and teachers. We constantly ask ourselves how we can do things better and are never satisfied. As both individuals and a company, we are always seeking new avenues to improve ourselves and to achieve our goals.

Let's build something together

We do our best to make sure you’re well taken care of so you can do your best.

Daily Lunches
We worry about the necessities so you can focus on solving the hard problems.

Rides are on us

Taking BART or Caltrain to work? No worries, monthly passes are on us.

Time off, anytime
We believe it’s important to take time off to re-energize and come back with newfound inspiration.

Monthly Events
Whether it’s a movie night, an escape room, or a happy hour, we make sure to take some time to just chill.

Quarterly Retreats
We make sure everyone at the company is enjoying their time, both in their work as well as with the rest of the team.

Tech Pack
We want you to be productive at work. So we make sure to provide everything that you’ll need to make that happen.

Quarterly Hackathons
Sometimes, working on the same thing and thinking about the same problems can be draining. We use hackathons as a way to keep things light-hearted and new.

Healthy & happy
Making sure you are healthy is one of our top priorities so we make sure you’re covered with medical, dental, and vision insurance.

Invest in your future
We offer a 401k plan to help you plan for retirement.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Affinity full-time (Less than a year)


    Company is growing rapidly but the leadership does an absolutely fantastic job in ensuring that each and every employee does not lose sight of the core values/mission of the company. Truly disruptive product that customers purchase generally through word-of-mouth so we have def. proven our value/success in the industry.


    Work/life balance can be better. Just like any other startup with lofty goals, company has set some aggressive goals/targets and that places a lot of pressure on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but also keep in mind, work isn't everything. Encourage people to focus on their well-being.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Affinity in September 2018.


    The worst interview experience. The interviewer was a grad student who has just been in company for 2 months. He just had question written on coderpad and asked me to write the answer without even explaining. I implemented the solution and it ran fine with the best time complexity possible. During interview, he told me to keep on coding as his internet has some problem so he won't be able to see my response. He didn't even ask what my thought process was or didn't even ask me to explain the solution I wrote. Even though I answered the complete question, they send a rejection. Seriously , the worst interview ever. Don't apply and waste your time here.
