XO Group – Why Work For Us?


Here at XO Group, we truly believe in doing work that matters. Our industry-leading brands (The Knot, The Bump, The Nest, GigMasters and How He Asked), top-ranked mobile apps and #1 bridal magazines provide the most sought-after information to millions of couples and first-time parents everywhere. But hey, who’s bragging?


Through our family of brands—The Knot, The Nest, The Bump, GigMasters and How He Asked—we inspire, inform and cheer on our community as they move through life’s most amazing (and stressful!) milestones. From the proposal, to creating a home and starting a family together, we’re there for every step of the journey.


Sure, we love love, but we also love our team. We’re kinda known for hiring the best and brightest in the business—the innovators, leaders, thinkers and hustlers. Our people believe in what they do and are a collaborative, creative group who genuinely enjoy learning from each other and spending time together. Basically, being here really is as good as they say.


You’ll hear a lot about culture and perks from other companies, but we like to think of it as the XO way of life. From unlimited vacation and generous parental leave benefits, to free snacks and Thirsty Thursdays, we believe in happiness above all else—in and out of the office. (It also doesn’t hurt that our headquarters are bright and airy with breathtaking views of the Brooklyn Bridge. That alone is a whole lot of happiness right there.)



XO Group believes in doing work that matters. Its mantra of "we love it, we own it, we do it" resonates across the organization, as everyone is empowered to own their area of expertise. Made up of smart, supportive, and dedicated individuals, the entire team gets to collaborate cross-functionally and learn about each other's fields. The team isn't all business all the time, however, as they make sure to have fun along the way and incorporate their outside interests into the workplace.
