Work Here and "Flip the Internet Upside Down"
We’ll let you in on a secret: AddThis is going to flip the internet upside down.
The company’s tools take “flat” websites, which show all visitors the same basic page, and customizes them, so everyone gets a site uniquely tailored to their preferences and interests.
In an age where everything is about personalization, it’s not surprising AddThis already has 1.8 billion users per month.
“As we continue to evolve, we’re really set to position AddThis as the global leader in marketing personalization,” says Stephanie, marketing communications manager.
You’d imagine a company with such big goals would have a fast-paced, dynamic office—and you’d be right. AddThis headquarters are a hub of activity. From the 24-hour hackathons (which employees say give them a great opportunity to bring to life the “crazy ideas” they’ve been pondering) to the many meetups AddThis hosts (like Big Data DC, Nova UX, and Nova Tech Women), working here means you’ll always be inspired.
“Everyone cares about the outcome, everyone cares about how our products are doing,” says Charlie Reverte, general manager and VP. “That sense of ownership really changes the culture and what it’s like to work here every day.”
When you do need some R&R, AddThis offers a quiet room, where team members frequently nap, a game room, where people frequently, well, play games, company-paid holidays, group outings, and what it calls “a grown-up approach to time off.”
One of the favorite perks is the food. Every day, employees enjoy a catered lunch and an unlimited supply of drinks and snacks. During the speaker series—oh yeah, did we mention the speaker series?—there’s even more dining options. AddThis wants to make sure its team has ample energy for flipping the internet upside down.
