Mission: To help our customers deliver better data and better analytics to more people, so they can make better decisions.
If you’ve been following our “Why I Came Back to Information Builders” blog series, you know we have a group of passionate employees who love what they do—and the company and customers they do it for. It’s not just these boomerang employees who feel this way. Our entire team is excited by the opportunities afforded to them by Information Builders, and believes our dedication and commitment distinguish us in the market.
In fact, we were recently honored by the Business Intelligence Group as a winner of its 2017 Best Places to Work Award! We’re thrilled by this recognition as it’s based upon the responses our employees provided in a survey about what life is like at Information Builders. According to the award’s description; “When you punch the clock and it is more about winning, more about collaborating and more about the work than the paycheck, you have found the right place to ‘work’.” This is truly what we aspire to at Information Builders, and we’re delighted that so many employees feel that they have found the right fit with us.
We believe our culture combines the energy of a startup with the knowledge gleaned from decades of experience in the industry, providing employees with a unique opportunity to be challenged, grow and, ultimately, do their best work. Below are just a few direct quotes from our employees:
“Information Builders is a great place to work. I've been able to not only grow my career here, but learn so much along the way.”
“We have the customer at heart first, this is one of our core values with integrity and innovation and this drives everyone in the same positive direction.”
“I recently joined Information Builders, and it is one of the best decisions I have made. The company is like a family where everyone has a voice and is valued.”
“The company cares and recognizes its people. It's truly a unique culture unlike anything in the software industry.”
Information Builders’ employees are integral not only to our customers’ success, but also to maintaining a company culture that sets us apart from others in the marketplace. As a result, our recognition by the Business Intelligence Group is really a reflection of our employees’ commitment and we’d like to publicly thank them for their dedication!

For more than 40 years, we’ve been helping customers turn their data into business value, and yet our products and services have never been more relevant than they are today.
The technology landscape evolved and data got bigger, but our mission remains the same: To help our customers deliver better data and better analytics to more people, so they can make better decisions.
Headquartered above the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York, Information Builders has offices around the world.
We’re a global company but we’ve all got a little New Yorker in us. Smart, genuine, tough, passionate, and loyal. Some of the most talented and creative professionals in the industry work at Information Builders. There’s nothing we can’t do.
Every day millions of people use our WebFOCUS software for Business Intelligence and Analytics. They use it in millions of different ways because we’re not a one-size-fits-all kind of company. We listen to and work with our customers to help solve their business problems and meet business goals. Their stories inspire us, excite us and drive us forward.
Our integrated solutions for data management set us apart because we know that analytics without trust in the underlying data can cause more questions than answers. Through one set of powerful products, we provide accurate, consistent data to your key stakeholders in the format that suits them best, whether it’s a financial report, an elegant dashboard, or a simple InfoApp.
We're a friendly, creative bunch. Whether it's the seasoned and talented professionals with deep expertise or fresh recruits, coming in overflowing with enthusiasm and new ideas, the company attracts (and keeps!) people who like to think big and know how to get big things done.
Located right above Penn Station, and just a few blocks from Port Authority, Information Builders’ corporate headquarters in midtown Manhattan couldn’t be easier to reach, from all points of the city and the surrounding areas. Get to work (and get home!) with a minimum of time and effort.
Our corporate headquarters are modern and quite spacious with panoramic views of iconic Manhattan. Landmarks such as the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center, the Chrysler Building – even the Statue of Liberty – are all visible from our offices and conference and training rooms.
One of the best things about working at Information Builders is that all employees are encouraged to express their opinions and ideas. Whether it's a concept for a new marketing campaign, a product enhancement, or even a suggestion on office décor, all ideas are welcome and all voices are heard.
At Information Builders, we like to work smarter, not longer, and know that the time spent outside the office is just as important as the time spent inside it. The company offers a generous amount of vacation time and personal days, and employees are encouraged to use them. Employees at Information Builders are encouraged to express their creativity and community spirit outside of work as well. Whether it’s coaching your daughter’s soccer team, volunteering at a local soup kitchen, contributing articles to a technology web site or being the head clown at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (like our Director of Events Marketing), we say "go for it!"
Ask people what they love about working here and most will say, "It’s like a big family." Everyone rallies together around the idea of taking care of our customers. We cheer for each other’s successes, both professional and personal. Many lifelong friendships have been forged here and will continue to be.
Information Builders was founded in 1975 and we’re not going anywhere. Unlike an unpredictable start-up that may have an exit strategy that doesn’t include you, at Information Builders, you’ll enjoy being part of a company that is built to last. There are so many opportunities for growth and change, so you can pivot to a new position or department and learn a new skill set. All things are possible at Information Builders.
As the company that practically invented Business Intelligence and self-service reporting decades ago, Information Builders continues to innovate. Our technology leadership is acknowledged by respected analysts such as Gartner, Ventana Research, Forrester, BARC and Dresner. Our software addresses a myriad of data challenges and supports the needs of all users, both inside and outside the organization, not just analysts or tech-savvy business people.
Information Builders is a privately held company. Why is this important? It means we can focus on the long term needs of our customers and the company itself, rather than meeting the short-term goals of shareholders and Wall Street analysts. This has allowed the company to thrive despite several stormy markets over the past 43 years, which knocked out many of our competitors. The bottom line is we remain true to our mission to provide superior software engineering combined with the industry’s best customer service.
Many companies claim to love their customers, but Information Builders' employees pride ourselves on the relationship we have with ours. No vendor is more committed to our customers’ success than we are, and it shows. Information Builders has repeatedly won Stevie Awards for outstanding customer service. We listen to and work with our customers to help solve their business problems and meet business goals.
People who work at Information Builders want to win, and it shows.
Notice that our definition of "winning" differs from others. We're not a startup, where winning means getting bought. We're not a mega-vendor, where winning means absorbing lots of little companies. We're a stable, privately-owned company filled with 1,400 specialists who enjoy making our customers successful through the innovative use of business intelligence and integration technology. It's a culture you won't find anywhere else.
All of those things, along with our top-notch corporate headquarters location above Madison Square Garden in New York City, competitive benefits, dozens of offices worldwide, and high-quality relationships with distributors and other vendors, and a steady $300-million-plus revenue stream, add up to a superior place to work.
If you'd like to experience a career move that will allow you work with a team of professionals who will surprise you with their drive, skill, and intelligence, consider Information Builders.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Information Builders (New York, NY).
I applied through a recruiter. He secluded face-to-face interview. I talked with HR representative about my background, expectations, company product and working environment. Interview was held in very professional manner, it took about 30-40 minutes. My next interview took much longer; it was a technical interview with hiring manager and team members, and then I was invited to VP office for final round of interview. Two days later I got an offer.
