Conductor – Why Work For Us?


Push Yourself. Inspire Others. Make a Difference.
We’re a 5-year-old tech start-up that’s continually named “Best Place to Work”. We believe that’s because everyone at Conductor isn’t here simply to do a job, they’re here to make an impact on our customers, each other and the industry. Whether pushing yourself, alongside other engineers, to develop software solutions for some of today’s most interesting data challenges. Or inspiring other Conductors to scrap old ways of thinking to reimagine the future of digital marketing. We’re not just building a company, we’re creating an environment where you feel challenged, can challenge the status quo, and truly make a difference.

Empowerment Through Transparency
At Conductor, you’re not an employee, you’re an owner. This is as much your company as it is our Co-Founders. And because of that, we go to great lengths to ensure you have the right information and are empowered to make decisions. We share business updates at our weekly All Hands Meeting (followed by lunch) and get together for quarterly Town Halls for deeper business reviews (following by fun activities). Everyone has access to our CEO (he sits in the open space next to you) and we encourage tough questions (“Ask Seth”) so you’re always in the know. And everyone participates in monthly and quarterly goal setting and check-ins so there’s opportunity for continuous feedback and improvement.

Humble, But Proud of Our Awards
We prefer to boast about the great work we do for customers, but some people know us for the awards we get on behalf of our people. We’ve been ranked the #4 Best Company to Work For in New York State, voted as one of Crain’s Best Places to Work in NYC for the sixth year running, and was recently named #38 of America’s fastest growing private companies by Inc. Magazine. We’ll continue to make Conductor a Best Place to Work – we believe it’s core to running a great business. And it’s this environment that ensures we do the best work for customers. 


Giving You Time To Give Back To The Community
On top of giving you unlimited vacation time, we encourage all Conductors to take 2 days of work to get involved in the charities you feel most passionate about. And on top of that, The Conductor Foundation (our non-profit arm) offers opportunities throughout the year to give back. Whether through our Quarterly Conductor Cares Charity Challenge that brings Conductors together for a fun challenge to benefit a local charity, or leverage our technology and services to benefit 1 of 3 pro bono customers we take on annually.

Conductor Foundation

The Conductor Foundation allows Conductor to give back as the company continues to grow. Its mission is to provide the knowledge, skills and tools that empower charitable non-profits to improve their online search visibility, raise awareness of their mission, increase donations and inspire volunteerism. Recipients of the Searchlight Grant include the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, WNYC (NPR), the National Kidney Foundation, DC Goodwill, the International Rescue Committee, Housing Works and more.

A Great Company Needs Great People

Driving Innovation By Blurring The Lines Between Work & Play
When work doesn’t feel like work, you can (and want to) perform at your absolute best. Conductor’s energizing environment has everything to be at your peak everyday – from a communal kitchen stocked with nutritious snacks, to monthly “Flap-Jack Fridays,” and multiple diversions like scooters, beanbags, and nerf wars. And we also schedule in quarterly activities like go karting, karaoke, picnics and scavenger hunts. Because sometimes the best innovation is inspired when you’re not focused on the problem.

Solving Complex Data Challenges Using The Latest Technology
Our engineering team consists of some of the best and brightest minds from companies like Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Oracle, and Apple using an interesting mix of technology (like Docker, EMR, AWS, Hadoop, Map/Reduce, Hive, Hbase) to solve complex, data challenges. And our team moves swiftly to eliminate waste and focus on the important parts of software engineering to test, measure, and rework solutions until we believe it’s deliver the right type of value our customers expect.

If you are interested in working for a company with great culture and technology, we would like to speak with you.

    Positive Experience


    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Conductor (New York, NY).


    Met with multiple people I would be working with and the cofounder. Really enjoyed everyone I met with on the leadership team, and very much so understood what they added to the equation/why they ended up at Conductor. Enjoyed this interview process very much and would highly refer candidates to Conductor!
