WeWork – Why Work For Us?

Who We Are

WeWork was founded by Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey in 2010 because they believed they could change the world by helping people work better together.

Headquartered in New York City, we operate globally in more than 30 cities and 12 countries. We’re a group of risk-taking, entrepreneurial spirits who believe deeply in collaboration. From the design and construction of our workspaces to the development of supportive technology to our onsite customer service, we take pride in everything that we do. Above all, we are members of the WeWork community, and we spend countless hours connecting with the people around us to better understand how we can build the absolute best place to work.

What is WeWork

WeWork is a workspace where companies grow together. Teams of any size can find beautifully designed conference rooms, coworking space, and private offices in more than 100 locations around the world. Beyond space, WeWork provides its members the community, services, events, and technology to support their big ideas.


Month-to-month commitments and flexible membership plans mean teams can get the space they need as they need it, whether booking a screening room once a quarter or setting up a satellite office in a new city. With one inclusive rate, members get not just inspiring space, but also furniture, cleaning, Internet, printing, and more.


We create environments where individual pursuit and collaboration collide. These collisions happen at weekly networking events, happy hours, mentoring sessions, inside our mobile app, and through serendipitous encounters in our halls and lounges. Our community managers help facilitate these interactions each and every day.


As a member, you’ll enjoy a ton of perks from our flexible month-to-month membership plan to special deals on healthcare, payroll, hosting, legal services, travel, fitness, you name it. One of our primary goals is to help you achieve your goals and we work relentlessly to make this happen for you.

At WeWork, we’re united by a desire to create meaningful work and lead meaningful lives. Through employee and member events like Summer Camp and our annual Halloween Party, we work hard and play hard.

Join the team! 

WeWork is more than just a place to work. It’s a community, a movement, a shift toward a new way of working and living. We hope you’ll join us.

    Community Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WeWork (Boston, MA) in January 2018.


    The process consisted of a screening call via video with a recruiter at the central office in NYC. Second step was a video interview with a local area manager.

    I the experience was overall very easy and positive. I liked the individuals I spoke with and was a little bummed when they decided to not move forward with my candidacy. I might recommend to interviewees that you lead with your experience- or at least make a strong attempt to make sure it gets woven into the conversation. It happened that majority of the conversations were about me or about why I was interested in the company, and I wish I had thought to push and give greater context to my relevant experience.
