Dun & Bradstreet – Why Work For Us?

Having recently gone private, we now have greater flexibility to build a competitive advantage in the vibrant market for data and insights, an edge that we are confident will benefit our customers. Now more than ever, we will have the opportunity to offer solutions to accelerate revenue, reduce cost, manage risk and transform businesses. We plan to invest in several key areas to strengthen our core data assets, create high-value analytics, enhance our technological capabilities, and deliver a top-notch customer experience. Join us as we embark on an exciting new chapter for our storied brand.

With the largest commercial database on the planet, we work with nearly ninety percent of the Fortune 500, and companies of every size around the world, who rely on us to build smart relationships and support their growth.

Our Heritage: How We Began

In 1842, Lewis Tappan started the Mercantile Agency (that would later become Dun & Bradstreet) as a network of correspondents who served as a unique source of reliable, consistent and objective credit information, fostering business relationships and man's confidence in man.

Now, nearly two centuries later, we've changed beyond recognition. Our credit ledgers now take the form of hundreds of millions of business records. And our agents who rode on horseback are now data scientists with predictive analytics. But amidst this change, our mission remains the same. We are inspired by human progress - the desire to grow and find new, better ways of doing business.

It's a very exciting time to be in Sales and Customer Support at Dun & Bradstreet because there are so many new and innovative products that we offer, that many people are not aware of such as our Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain and Compliance products and solutions. Our go-to-market approach is based on the principles of speed and simplicity. See below for more about the various different Sales and Customer Support teams and how they are structured, and meet some of our Sales Leaders here.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Short Hills, NJ) in April 2018.


    I applied on the DnB careers website. The HR recruiter reached out to me and set up a phone call. She asked me general questions about my background and my interests. I was then invited to the Short Hills office to interview with 3 people from the team that was hiring. Each interview was around 35-40 minutes. The questions were mostly behavior with some technical questions here and there. I heard back about 3 days latter from the same HR recruiter inviting me back to interview with the supervisor. Once again this was about 35-45 minutes and was mostly behavioral/culture questions with some technical questions
