What does WhitePages do?
Simply put, WhitePages is the leading provider of contact information for people and businesses in the U.S. We are a top 40 web property and a top 50 mobile property with over 40 million unique monthly users and a suite of popular mobile apps that have been downloaded more than 25 million times. At our core, we are a data company with a proven track record of building unique and useful consumer and enterprise applications on top of North America’s most comprehensive set of contact information.
What’s unique about your company culture?
WhitePages’ technology culture is driven by developers passionate about their craft. We have super smart engineers working on solving problems that involve massive amounts of data. We run our teams lean, everyone’s input AND output truly makes a difference. The best part? People and businesses actually use the products we create—at 44mm monthly unique users and with just 36 engineers, we have 1.22 million unique users per engineer. (Take that Facebook!)
On Fridays, we celebrate the hard work we’ve put in during the week by organizing a company lunch or company happy hour! In late January 2013, we will be joined by our friends and families and hitting the slopes at a company retreat in Whistler, BC! And this is on top of unlimited time off…
Where’s your office?
We are located in the heart of downtown Seattle in the Rainier Square building. We have an open working environment that inspires collaboration. This Spring, our offices will be going through a MAJOR redesign and we are looking forward to having state-of-the-art office furnishings and equipment.
