Hello, We’re Built In

Built In is on a mission to unite technology professionals with their purpose.  We do that through the power of content.  Today, over one million registered users and 4.5 million technology professionals use our platform every year to learn about innovative companies, new technologies and further their careers.

The caliber of audience we’ve cultivated means that over 1800 companies--from the hottest tech startups to Fortune 500 companies undergoing digital transformation-- trust us to share their employer brand story and fill the technology roles that drive their strategy.  

Because we can help employers find hard to recruit talent, our B2B side is thriving.  In addition our users are finding great jobs and advancing their careers and knowledge of the tech world with Built In. That means we are rapidly growing our product and technology footprint as we are committed to building the leading SaaS product for employer branding and talent activation.

With venture funding of $30M to date with a $22M Series C raise in 2019, we are poised to disrupt recruiting for hard-to-fill roles and help technologists find their dream jobs--in their city, around the country or completely remote. If you are looking for an award-winning culture, have a desire to help people find their calling  and want to be part of building best-in-class technology, Built In might fulfill your purpose.

We're Looking for a News Reporter

We’re expanding our team of reporters to write news for a sophisticated, national audience in the tech sector and beyond. News reporters are responsible for writing two-plus short to medium-length (300 to 500 words) news stories covering the communities tech professionals live and work in each day, in addition to occasional coverage on trends and broad topics playing out in the technology industry, and contributions to other news editorial projects as needed. This person will need to be skilled in research, interviewing and writing clean journalistic copy. Additionally, this person should be endlessly curious about tech innovations and what they say about the future. They should also have an interest in cultivating relationships with sources and owning a coverage area, or beat.

You’d be joining a growing team responsible for telling bold and original stories that help an audience of tech professionals learn and build new things. You’ll collaborate closely with other members of the team to discover new approaches, formats and perspectives. Additionally, you'll be joining a company that enthusiastically invests in office culture, even with our current, remote-only workforce.
