Jobvite – Why Work For Us?


We’re all about endless innovation in recruiting. Period.

Since 2006, Jobvite has set the bar in best-of-breed recruiting technology. We began by bringing the power of social media to employee referrals and job posting strategies. Then, as we saw the direction the global workforce was headed (think STEM jobs and Millennials), we moved forward with a plan to provide a more comprehensive, advanced, and positive experience for recruiters and jobseekers alike. Because here’s the thing: While both groups have different needs, they all crave the same advantages. Ease of use. Intuitive functionality. More mobility and convenience.

So that’s what we’re working on—and we’re proud to say we are leading the pack. Our award-winning SaaS solutions are in use by over 1000 customers around the world. We have no plans to slow down. And we hope you’ll join us.

We don’t make it complicated. If you work at Jobvite, you commit to getting things done. We’re small and we keep that startup feeling intact.

But you don’t just work at Jobvite. You play. You chill. You build. You chat. You eat. You have ideas—and you see them through. Working at Jobvite means being part of a family and part of a team, and all of the growth and discussion and progress that those things entail.


Wondering how we compare when it comes to perks? Here’s the rundown:

  • We’ve got all the standard (well, above standard) medical, dental, and vision benefits. We do all the life insurance and disability coverage, too. And flexible spending accounts—because those are just plain smart.
  • We really like it when our employees are healthy and stress-free, so we offer gym reimbursements and generous holidays/paid time off.
  • We don’t want you struggling to get here or hassled by transportation costs, so we have a flex spending discount for commuters, free parking, and company-paid Uber rides between the office and Caltrain.
  • We like our employees to feel at home, so we have a pretty awesome kitchen, lounge, and game room. And we use them a lot.
  • Dull is not something we do well. Instead, we keep things creative with frequent social events, team activities, and happy hours.
  • Fuel your engine. We offer a fully stocked kitchen with breakfast, snacks, refreshments and fresh fruit. Lunch is served every Monday & Wednesday during our exciting and motivating All Hands Meetings.
  • Did we mention we love awards? We like getting them, and we like giving them. Our employees earn recognition for their noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding performance.

There’s no place like Jobvite.

The Jobvite culture is about achieving balance for the sake of delivering results. In other words, we believe work matters—but we also believe that rest sparks creativity. When it counts, we throw ourselves full-force into the projects at hand. And when we need it, we take a breather and reflect on all we’ve accomplished. We work hard, play hard, and succeed big.

    I have been working at Jobvite full-time (Less than a year)


    Onboarding - very involved onboarding process! Before I joined, I was invited to an office outing where I was able to get to know everyone before starting. Everyone was very welcoming. This continued into my first few weeks on the job. The team has been very hands on in my onboarding/training and everyone in the office is warm, inviting and open to questions.

    Environment - the environment is very positive. Again, everyone is very open to questions and more than happy to help. Everyone is very excited about the work they are doing and energized coming into the work day. There are a few challenges in terms of system and process, but there is a great mindset when it comes to tackling these challenges as a team.

    Benefits - the benefits are very competitive for the midwest employees since this company is based in CA. Benefits are extremely well priced with good coverage and you can be reimbursed monthly for a gym membership.


    Benefits - while most of the benefits are competitive, there is no 401k match currently. This isn't a huge deal breaker since I haven't had a match above 6%, but still something to consider.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burlingame, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Jobvite (Burlingame, CA).


    Received a brief programming test and filled it out. Solutions were a bit of a challenge, but relatively straightforward. Was brought in for on-site interviews, met with many members of the team who talked about, variously, software development principles, current frameworks, my experience, their work environment, my goals & career plan. Took ~4 hours in all. Was brought in to meet CEO as final step. Time-to-offer, ~3 weeks.
