“This is not your average corporate office. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. While we're here to get work done, not everything is all business. People here understand the importance of human relationships. Not only are we co-workers, but many of us are also friends, close ones even. To top it off, our office is fun and encouraging to take breaks!”
Denise, Technial Lead
"I have grown more here than any other company. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to move between several teams. Each time, it challenged me to pick up new skills. Edmunds has a culture of continuous learning. In my time here, I have participated in study groups to learn: programming language theory, machine learning, and iOS development."
Carlos, Digital Futures Engineering

Advice to Management
Thank you for all of your efforts! Keep it up.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edmunds.com (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2016.
The whole process took a little longer than normal because right after my phone interview they filled the last slot of the open position. However, the recruiter was so nice and said they shoudl be hiring again soon and she would circle back. Sure enough I heard from her a month later, scheduled a skype interview and an in person interview and was offered the job a few days later. Overall it was a great experience. Everyone was so friendly and I really felt welcomed. The final in person interview was a little intimidating because you are interviewed by about 6 different employees including directors, managers, and future co workers, but they were all extremely nice.
