What we offer

What is special about working for us?

Working at CBS Interactive offers the best of both worlds — an advancing, digitally-based environment coupled with the history of a media giant. Whether your dream job is in tech, entertainment, sports or games, build your career here and help create the content we all love.

Aside from the numerous opportunities to swap ideas and attend training sessions, employees define the office’s culture as one rooted in social happenings and out-of-office friendships. Therefore, when teams aren’t attending large industry events like E3 or CES, they head to group events like Paint Night in the Park or Third Thursdays—both of which involve good food and friends.


How would we describe the company culture?

The office’s location and bustling atmosphere help CBS Interactive combat the stigma that large companies have fragmented cultures. Employees are encouraged to create and maintain far-reaching relationships across all departments and cities—which typically start in monthly happy hours or impromptu team gatherings. The casual environment also promotes a rare form of professional camaraderie that benefits output and job satisfaction.


What else should applicants know about us?

Our CBSi Learning & Development team is here to help employees fine-tune their current skills and develop new ones. We cover all areas of development from workshops geared towards new and existing managers to courses targeted towards developing and enhancing business soft and technical skills.

We also know that not all employees learn in the same way. That is why we provide a variety of formats to address your preferred learning style including classroom-based workshops, interactive webinars and web-based training courses.


Application advice

Advice to applicants

When applying for a CBSi position, make sure that your resume and qualifications are in line with the information listed in the job description before applying. Our hiring teams are diligent about creating job descriptions that accurately and appropriately describe the requirements and qualifications necessary for the job. So, as a candidate, please update your resume to reflect your background and experience as it relates to our open jobs.


Preferred application method

We prefer all applicants to apply directly online either through a designated job board where our role is posted or on our career site at:

Selection process

We have an internal recruitment team that reviews and processes all of our candidate applications. Once you apply, our recruiters will do a first review of your application and resume to verify if you are a fit for the role. If so, they will do a first round of phone screens with you to learn a little bit more about your background and qualifications. After the initial phone screen, if the recruiter still believes you are a fit for the role, they will send your application to the Hiring Manager for review. Hiring managers typically do a second phone screen and then in-person (or video) interviews with the team before making final decisions.
