Who we are:
Just two years since launch, FindTheBest has grown from a small Santa Barbara garage to a 70+ employee company with 25M+ visitors a month, already a quarter the size of Yelp. Everyday, even the newest employees make a giant impact on our millions of users. If you’ve ever dreamed of being an entrepreneur—but want the security of a company built for success—there’s no better place to start your career.
FindTheBest helps people make big decisions. We collect, organize and present data in a consumer-friendly format so our users can pick the best smartphone, college, ski resort (and 800+ others) for them. Many employees specialize in one of 10 broad categories—like travel, sports, health, or education—designing smart filters, colorful visuals, and easy comparison tools to help people decide.
We're backed by two VC firms: Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers and New World Ventures. Our founder/CEO previously started DoubleClick (sold to Google for $3.1B). Located in Santa Barbara (“Silicon Beach”), we're fast-growing, and best of all, fun. Employees enjoy snacks, a game room, quick access to the beach, and daily classes with a personal trainer. Career opportunities abound for smart students from just about any background, from software engineering to sales to marketing to research and writing.
What we're looking for:
We are looking for passionate and talented programers that get excited about our huge ambitions, love tackling big real-world problems in practical ways, and view coding as fun, not work!
What we use:
While Kleiner Perkins is our venture capital firm we can't give you a private jet to fly to a private island, but you can use our comparison to FindTheBest one (fractional-aircraft.findthebest.com). We will negotiate a package that allows you to enjoy sunny Santa Barbara (Silicon Beach as we call it) and share in the future success of the company! Our fringe benefits include time-off when the surf is pumping, impromptu team outings, and ownership of your own projects.
Submit a resume with past projects, a brief bio, and relevant URLS (github, stackoverflow, personal website, etc...).
About the Company:
We've been called "a different approach to search" by the New York Times, and "the more talented offspring of Wolfram Alpha and Google Squared" by Search Engine Land. Michael Arrington (TechCrunch) even told readers to "keep an eye on this one - it's for real."
FindTheBest is an unbiased, data-driven decision engine. We collect, organize and present data in a consumer-friendly format so our users can quickly make informed decisions. Each month, 14M+ users view our content on 800+ products and services across 10 verticals.
We're backed by Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, and our founder/CEO previously started DoubleClick (sold to Google for $3.1B).

We look forward to hearing from you!
