Digital River – Why Work For Us?

At Digital River, we work hard and we play hard. It may sound cliché, but our goal is to provide an environment where our team can build a career and build a life. Here’s a snapshot of ways we work to achieve this goal:

  • We believe in paying for performance with our shared success bonus program – If the company does well, our employees do well. It’s that simple.
  • Work that matters with colleagues who care – We're proactive partners for our clients who are leading enterprise software, consumer electronics and digital game brands. That's our sweet spot, our hyper-expertise. Very simply stated, the people of Digital River are one of our single greatest competitive advantages—just ask our clients. They’ll be the first to tell you that our team’s ability to partner with them in solving their most complex ecommerce challenges is one of our greatest strengths.
  • Competitive time off programs – We empower our employees to be in charge of their own careers. Time away from the office is not only critical to recharge, but it’s often where the best “light-bulb ideas” are sparked.
  • Family-friendly parental leave policies – Family is important. That’s why we encourage new Moms and Dads to spend time with their new babies. Our U.S. employees get 13 weeks paid parental leave.
  • Community involvement – Digital River becomes part of the communities where we live and work around the world. From hosting blood drives, volunteering at food shelves, running in charitable races, and mentoring young adults who want to pursue careers in technology, there are plenty of ways to get involved at Digital River.
  • Fun office environment – From our casual dress code and “bring your dog to work” days at our U.S. offices, to our weekly gatherings on Friday afternoons, we like to celebrate life at Digital River together.

    Associate Business Analyst/Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northfield, MN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Digital River (Northfield, MN) in May 2017.


    I was assigned a time slot to meet with the Talent Acquisition Coordinator and a member of the team I'd be working with. I was wearing a full suit, both of interviewers were wearing jeans and button up shirts. Both interviewers were very friendly and courteous, interview started on time. They asked typical interview questions about project management and responses to adversity in a group setting. I felt like I focused too heavily on one aspect of my resume, which is easy to do when you're wrapping up college and have limited experience. They offered to field any questions, I asked about Digital River's workplace environment. Both interviewers were very open with how they perceived working for the company, their likes and dislikes, acknowledged the environment had improved, and that what I'd read on Glassdoor is true. I forgot to ask what the next step was until the very end, that was a mistake.

    I was not offered an on site interview. The Talent Acquisition Coordinator told me I interviewed well, he felt it wouldn't be a good personal fit. I tend to agree, although maybe he would have felt differently if I talked about my motorcycle.

    Overall a positive experience, the TAC was good about informing me I wouldn't be moving on; his post interview comments and suggestions were well taken.
