Fandom – Why Work For Us?


Fandom powered by Wikia is the world’s largest entertainment fan site. As the fan's voice in entertainment, it's where you can find and share news, commentary, stories, and knowledge on your favorite shows, movies, games and more.

Whether fans are seeking the latest word on Dragon Age gameplay, adding details to Harry Potter’s family history, or looking for the perfect summer cocktail recipe, Wikia provides an environment for all superfan types to be original and empower their social presence through a creative and collaborative community.

Our Mission

Unleash the power of knowledge as influence. Wikia provides a trusted and customizable collaborative publishing platform on which everyone - really, everyone - can pursue a complete chronicle of what they know and love on subjects that range from video games, movies, TV, and books, to cars, cooking, crafts, education, and travel. By doing so, we empower the expert and satisfy the curious.

Enable personal and collective creativity. Our communities assemble on their own initiative and dwell as living, breathing entertainment destinations -- interconnected through a shared desire to create, collaborate, learn, and inform. The more you learn, the more you have to share. That magnetic appeal our fans organically generate is contagious and inspiring.

Distribute rich, original content. Collaboration is what makes Wikia’s content unique. Our site supports powerful search engine discovery and complementary curation tools for video, photo, text, quizzes, and more. Wikia contributors and readers return again and again for real, useful information -- visiting an average of 4.8 times per month to consume an average of eight pages each visit.

Want to help establish a new standard of Fandom? Interested in creating and completing projects together with others for the benefit of millions? Looking to channel your knowledge, experience, and passion into a new type of media company?


We are Fandom, powered by Wikia, and we're on a worldwide hunt for bright, creative, and determined individuals to join our team, accelerate our growth, and share in our love for all things pop culture. Just like our communities, we are a collaborative and passionate bunch. We have offices in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan and Poznan, Poland and Cologne, Germany.


Our US employees are treated to competitive benefits and a 401K, pet-friendly offices and healthy-snack-focused kitchens. Globally we show our Fandom on Wikia Days, our innovation during Hackathons, our competitive side at any opportunity (Whiffle ball anyone?) and share an abnormal appreciation for holidays.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fandom (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy and welcoming. Everyone I spoke to was immediately approachable and very clear about what the job would entail. Like the best interviews, they didn't feel judgmental. It just felt like tow people having a normal, civil, and enlightening discussion. The interviewers were always prompt and able to answer any question I had.
