Decision-makers at OfferUp focus on people by ensuring employees feel taken care of—professionally and personally. A neighborly leadership style replaces rigid hierarchies, so teams are empowered to bring ideas to the table and explore different roles. In fact, OfferUp’s general hiring philosophy is to find and onboard great talent—then get out of the way.
When employees aren’t scouring the app for the next White Elephant gift exchange, the team takes advantage of community perks—unique local lunch spots, nearby trails, and free kayak and paddleboard rentals on the campus canal. The company's Puget Sound playground also creates opportunities for unconventional team-building. Sailing, hikes, and brewery tours are just some of their favorite ways to bond.
