You’ve got mail! You probably recall that familiar quip as the signature of AOL’s early days, but it’s so far from the company it is today. For 25 years, AOL has produced high-quality web content and stayed ahead of the game by creating new and innovative products.
And with more than 250 million users, it’s clear AOL is doing something right. The brands in its family of companies and websites are well-loved. You might know a few: The Huffington Post, TechCrunch, and Moviefone, to name a few. To keep them all growing, the company drives innovation by investing in its younger employees, who always have new and exciting ideas. Jessica Kane, Director of Millennial Outreach, considers herself lucky to work for a company that puts so much of its future in the hands of young people.
“There’s a sense of growth and opportunity here—which I’ve never experienced anywhere else,” explains Ryan Sagawa, a designer for the AOL Brand and Creative team, who started as an intern and has grown with the company ever since.
Even after years with the company, each person still has the chance to innovate and grow their careers at AOL however they want.
“One of my favorite things about working at AOL for the last six years has been the different opportunities I’ve had in my career,” says Claudia Huapaya, Strategy and Operations for AOL.com and Lifestyle.
“I grew with AOL. I learned many things and many new technologies. It’s been almost 10 years, and I love it,” adds Piya Ghosh, a software engineer for the Huffington Post Media Group.
