Fun & Games

On Friday afternoons at Bankrate NYC, it’s not uncommon to hear people shouting “Bingo!” To abandon any stress from the past week and end it on a fun note, the team has a tradition of playing Bingo together every other Friday—and it gets pretty competitive. To add to the fun, the NYC office also features foosball and shuffleboard tables in its cafe area for when workers need a break.

Accessible To All

Bankrate has an open-door policy—literally. With its new open floor plans, employees are much more accessible to each other than ever before and the office has plenty of collaborative areas where teams can gather for impromptu meetings. The space also includes numerous writable surfaces to help employees brainstorm, and to add to the New York feel, 11 conference rooms named after different NYC neighborhoods featuring artistic re-creations of that area's landmarks.

Office Perks

Sometimes the best work is done after the most fun is had, and at Bankrate, the offices almost seem designed for fun. There’s foosball and ping-pong to be played, painting classes for employees, and even the occasional bowling tournament, as well as weekly bingo and various happy hour celebrations. On top of all of that, the holiday parties are a staff favorite.

Culture of Learning & Transparency

Bankrate recently moved into a brand new open-floor office. With whiteboard walls, daily stand-up meetings, and open-door management, Bankrate encourages collaboration and the free exchange of ideas. It’s this culture, along with the continual training both on and offline, that empowers employees to truly be their best and take charge of their career.

When it comes to what you can expect while working at Bankrate, our philosophy is quite simple: We take the employee experience very seriously by dedicating ourselves to those who drive results without ego, commit to making their colleagues better, and who are ready for challenges of working on the biggest personal finance platforms in banking, cards, insurance, and senior care.

We focus on things that matter most to employees beyond just their salary, such as individual development, creativity, rewards, and recognition. We also pay close attention to the qualities that differentiate us from our competitors–while we take our work seriously, we don't take ourselves as seriously. We laugh, we play, and we have fun.

Office Life

At Bankrate, we're looking for talented, brainy people who also have a sense of fun and community. A serious discussion of the direction of mortgage rates can be followed by a friendly game of table tennis in the break room, a "town hall" meeting to update employees on company news and direction typically ends with a happy hour, and we put aside work for holiday happenings such as our Halloween costume and pumpkin-carving contests.

    Average Interview


    Many, many rounds. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager, then a phone interview with a team member, completed a case study, then 2 video interviews of about 2 hours each with about 6 people at the company, including people not on the team and another interview with the same team member. Then there was radio silence for about 3 weeks, and I had to follow up with the recruiter 3 times before getting any response.
