Great benefits, work-life balance, great co-workers, and overall a forward-thinking company I am proud to work for.


Pay isn’t very competitive compared to other companies.

How is diversity at BuzzFeed?

...There may be a lot of diversity at the lower levels, and POC (producers/creators) are, indeed, placed front and center so they can be touted publicly for diversity representation, however, the people who stand to benefit the most (leadership, sales, etc.) are mostly white and/or male....Read More

  1. Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at BuzzFeed (San Francisco, CA) in Sep 2022


    CHILDISH AND UPROFESSIONAL. Applied online on the Buzzfeed website. Three weeks later the recruiter contacted me and set up an interview for a week later. There was confusion over the time; I logged in late, and we did not connect. I accepted the blame and apologized. The recruiter offered to reschedule the next day. I logged in *early* to ensure I was on time. The recruiter never showed/let me into the video conference, and within 10 minutes of the start time I received a "Sorry, we're not moving forward message." Clearly, he had no intention of holding the interview.
