    At This Seattle Company, Your Pup Gets Benefits, Too

    Back To Career News Although RealSelf is a company that specializes in helping people research doctors and cosmetic procedures, don't be surprised when you're greeted at their Seattle office by 15 to 20 dogs. You see, RealSelf (like many other Seattle-based companies) is a pet-friendly office.

  • “We are a company for women, by women, so this recognition means the world to us,” said VP of People Lauren Sato.

About RealSelf

You deserve the real story — no airbrushing, no editing. RealSelf delivers it.

At RealSelf, you'll discover the treatments, products, and clinicians that real people say live up to the promise of delivering effective cosmetic and wellness results. Since our founding in 2006, we've grown into a trusted resource for tens of millions around the world.

Insights and support from real people. RealSelf members share their treatment experiences and photos, along with doctor reviews, costs, and candid opinions on what's worth it (or not).

Answers from highly trained experts. Our doctor community has answered over a million questions from RealSelf members.


As stewards of our community, we live by values that align each of us with our members' interests and enable us to deliver on our mission: to bring confidence to every important health and beauty decision.

Customer Centered

Always strive to keep the customer top of mind in the work we do.

One Team

We before me.

Real Time

Work to be most effective in the shortest amount of time.


At RealSelf we believe in extending the life-changing power of confidence to people across the globe. To support that belief, we support and bring attention to global and local needs. For us, giving back is not something that happens just once a year. It’s at the core of who we are.

Global Access to Medical Care

We want to make a real impact on global access to necessary reconstructive surgery and medical treatments. Worldwide, more than five billion people lack the ability to get the basic surgical care they need, leaving them living with reparable birth defects, burns, or other injuries. RealSelf funded surgical trips to India and Vietnam, and in 2016 we launched the RealSelf Fellowship program.


The RealSelf Fellowship program provides financial support to doctors who donate their time to provide care and training to underserved communities around the world.


The program was inspired by our participation and support of surgical teams that provided life-transforming care for those who lacked financial access. Learn more about our efforts in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, andDehradun, India.

    I have been working at RealSelf full-time


    Over the many years I've been here, I could go on forever on the pros in working at RealSelf.

    What I want to call out is the investment we make in our people.
    For the last few years, we continue to raise the bar in what employees are offered in training and support.

    Aside from our awesome team and company events that contribute to an incredible culture & reinforce our strong core values, we are also offered training & support in a variety of personal & professional topics:

    Self Defense Classes
    Improv Class - To help increase communication both in sales calls & cross functional collaboration
    Mindfullness - Teaching what it means and how to incorporate
    Financial Planning support - What is it and where do we start? (outside of 401k)
    Volunteering - We do something almost quarterly to help both locally & globally
    Yoga - we used to offer yoga in house weekly, though I don't think we do anymore?
    Health coach - On top of our health fair, we've had coaches come in to teach us about health & fitness.
    We even had Spa day where you could sign up for a massage, facial, or manicure.
    Leadership Training: Managers are offered multiple courses in leadership best practices.
    Public Speaking - We had a course on relieving anxiety when speaking in groups (available to anyone in the company, these aren't just offered to sales)

    This is just to name a few, but I couldn't be happier to see this investment in people on all levels, on all teams.


    At the rate we're growing I no longer know everyone's name, let alone what everyone does. The good news is, we hire smart people and building big teams to support our aggressive initiatives!

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever stop investing in people.

    I am so proud to work here and can't tell you how valuable the training has been in my growth. Thank you!

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at RealSelf (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.


    Applied online, 2 days after got a recruiter email, then she emailed me a case study to be finished within 5 days after I opened it. After I submitted it, I was notified that I passed the round and could speak with an analyst in the team. After the phone call we scheduled an onsite interview two weeks later.
    Since I was not a local candidate, Realself generously covered all my airfare, food, transportation and hotel to fly me in and interview me. The interview was a full afternoon including 5 interviews with 5 different people. After all the interviews, my recruiter came in and introduced the benefits (which are pretty decent). 3 business days later I got the email of interview result.

    Overall, Realself interview process is my favorite among all my other interviews. Recruiter professionalism is a top-notch. (God I wish more companies could hire recruiters like Realself!) Interviewers were so friendly and welcoming that it makes my other interviews with other companies a bit harsh (not blaming Realself here). They even prepared a goodie bag for interviewees including a tumbler, a notebook, peppermint ,a Starbucks gift card and a donation to charity in the name of the candidate!
