Mission: To help our customers deliver better data and better analytics to more people, so they can make better decisions.

Information Builders – Why Work For Us?

Award-winning customer service

Customer success is everything at Information Builders.

Our reputation for customer service excellence has garnered us the highest honors from “CRM” magazine, the SSPA, and the American Business Awards. Our products and services have received top recognition from independent analyst research firms including Gartner, Forrester, Ventana Research, BARC, Dresner, and the Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI). Most importantly, we’re proud of our customers who are continually honored by the industry for their stellar accomplishments and the impact they have had on people’s lives.

We Love What We Do

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.

We Love New York

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.

We’re Problem Solvers at Heart

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.

We Start with the Data

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.

Join a Winning Team at Information Builders

People who work at Information Builders want to win, and it shows.

  • We win recognition from top industry analysts, such as Ventana Research and Gartner, by consistently showing client value and technology innovation.
  • We win industry awards every year, such as the Computerworld Honors awards, by applying our innovative technology to customer needs.
  • We win awards based on the votes of conference-goers, such as the Business Intelligence Excellence
  • Award at Gartner's BI Summit, by solving problems instead of selling seats.
  • We win recognition for outstanding customer support, such as with the American Business Awards
  • We win sales and customers, because our clients know that when the stakes are high they need a reliable partner. We have more than 12,000 customers worldwide in every major industry, covering most of the Fortune 100 and most U.S. Federal Government agencies.

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 have been working at Information Builders full-time (More than 10 years)


    Wonderful culture, family oriented - yet driven for success. I've worked for 5 other companies and this is best by far! The company has the same passion for their customers as I do personally. Perfect fit.


    Wish we would do a little more marketing!

    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Information Builders (El Segundo, CA) in September 2016.


    I had several phone interviews and several face to face interviews. One of the face to face interviews was a group interview where I had to give a three part presentation.

    I received and accepted a verbal job offer, but the job was cut in year end budget discussions. so I never received the written offer.
