Suggestions for improvement

They have no system to verify former or current employees are for real
Company access to learning websites like pluralsight
Honestly, there isn't much that comes to mind here. The things that don't work well (for example management communication) we actively work on. Sometimes fixes work, sometimes they don't but there always seems to be a desire to listen to input and improve.
Make the product better. Have a better go-to-market strategy. Recognize that there are a bunch of people that are not talented and hire better.
Company needs to purge their senior leadership - Company leadership starting at the top is misogynistic

We are a team of smart, fun, hard-working people who care about a greater mission: a better workplace for all.

We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of XING, the premier business networking platform in Europe, and have been the market leaders for 10+ years across the pond, which means that we have the freedom and financial support to boldly pursue our goals as we expand in the U.S., while also being able to work fast like any U.S. start-up that's ready to make big moves! The work is challenging, for sure, but we'd want it no other way.

Who we are looking for

Preferred Skills

We're looking for like-minded folks who believe in the power of transparency to build a better worklife for all. Sound lofty? We hope so.

Show us your excellence in three core skills in your field. If you’ve got more great but superheroes usually have very specific powers.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Relevant work experience. (People in your field understand your résumé.)
  • Good people skills. (Neither animals or babies are afraid of you.)
  • Our kununu culture fit. (Passionate, enthusiastic, and just plain nice.)

For Applicants

Here you can find helpful information about your applicant process at kununu US.

  • Email us at service@kununu.us

  • Learn who we are and what we stand for. Check out our competitors so you know why we're different. Come with ideas and please bring questions. The best candidates are always intellectually curious.

  • Come as you are, we're not looking to be impressed (if you've been invited to interview, we already are).

  • Online, definitely. Check the "Jobs" tab on this page for all of our open opportunities!

  • We usually start with a phone interview to get a sense of interest and fit on both sides. If that goes well, expect an in-person meeting followed by introductions to senior team leaders.

    Though we may have immediate and urgent needs, please know we care more about getting the right person in than filling a slot. We put people and culture fit above plain experience.
