Why you’ll love working here:

On October 22, 2021, LivePerson was named in Newsweek's 100 Most Loved Workplaces list coming in at #46. Per the Best Practices Institute (the conductor of the research), the rankings were determined after surveying more than 800,000 employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000. The list pays tribute to companies that put respect, caring and appreciation for their employees at the center of their business model and, in doing so, have earned the loyalty and respect of the people who work for them.

Five key areas were measured to gauge employee sentiment:

  • the level of collaboration at the company;
  • how positive workers are about their future at the company;
  • how much employer values align with employee values;
  • respect at all levels; and
  • career achievement.

Given the many challenges that arose from COVID-19, the survey also included company responses and adaptability to the pandemic, like return-to-office rules; workplace diversity, equity and inclusion as well as compensation and benefits policies and practices. Additionally, LivePerson was also named as one of FastCompany’s World’s most innovative companies of 2020 list for the Artificial Intelligence category. It offers amazing colleagues along with opportunities to push your own limits to grow. It embraces invention and experimentation. You’ll have great benefits plus flexible time off. Most importantly, you’ll have an ability to make an impact at work and at brands across the globe as we build the future with trusted Conversational AI together.


On November 2, 2021, Live Person has also been named to the list of best led companies in 2021 by INC. The data-driven list recognizes 250 “ remarkable companies run by remarkable leadership teams” selected from a total of 10,000 evaluated firms.  Companies were analyzed via an algorithm that identified the best companies according to their leadership teams’ accomplishments in four areas: performance and value creation, market penetration and customer engagement, talent and leadership team.  All 250 companies named to the list have a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers, and more.

At LivePerson, people from diverse backgrounds come together to do their best work and be their authentic selves. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
