Factual expands its location-based ad tools!
We at Factual believe that data should be accessible to every developer, entrepreneur, business, or organization – anyone who needs it to build a better app, provide a better search result, make smarter software – anyone who needs data to make a better decision or help others make better decisions.
We care deeply about our company culture. The five values below are guiding principles for everything we do.
WORK WITH DIVERSE TECHNOLOGY
At Factual, we pride ourselves on applying the right tools to the right tasks. Consequently, we use a wide variety of technologies ranging from those that are well established to some that are new and cutting edge.
Check out a small sample of the typical technologies and languages used by our different engineering groups below:
DATA SCIENCE & MACHINE LEARNING
Factual employees enjoy a flexible Personal Time Off policy as time away from work is important to achieving work-life balance and we believe in supporting a culture of trust and responsibility.
We’re headquartered in beautiful, sunny Los Angeles. We also have great offices in New York City, San Francisco, and Shanghai.
We offer our full-time employees a diverse platform of medical, dental, and vision options, along with a 401k plan, flexible spending and dependent care accounts, life insurance, and discount programs.
Take a break and do some lunchtime yoga or afternoon pilates in the office. Factual brings in weekly instructors and offers discounted memberships to local gyms. We also provide organic fruit and healthy snacks in our kitchen.
Aside from wrangling with data, we enjoy pool and ping pong tournaments, piles of board games for board game night, a kitchen full of meals and snacks, catered lunch on Fridays, and 360° views of LA from the Hollywood sign to the Pacific ocean. Our New York, San Francisco, and Shanghai offices each have their own local flavor. We are active in the local community and frequently host technology meetups at our offices.
Whether you’re new to the area or just want to share your favorite things, we have groups for everything from beer enthusiasts to board gamers, hikers, surfers, movie lovers, soccer players, basketball players, trivia aficionados, and more.
I have been working at Factual full-time (Less than a year)
Interesting challenging work, clear career path with guidance, great company culture and environment, great location and perks, above industry compensation, friendly and nice coworkers and management, unlimited PTO, strong team morale and company growth, brilliant and personable CEO. I couldn't have asked for more.
Nothing I can think of right now.
Advice to Management
As the company grows, please be sure to preserve company culture.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Factual (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.
I applied on the company website, and received a phone interview after a week. The pone interview is based on behavior questions. Then, I got an online test. The test is based on regular expressions.
