Our vision is to connect the world through a shared passion for tech and the human need for purpose
We Reinvent How:
Talented people find their professional purpose
Companies tell their stories (in a way no job post ever could)
Communities connect, through shared passions and values
For millions of tech professionals nationwide, Built In is the best place to learn about the industry, build connections and carve out futures at companies they believe in.
Built In was founded in 2011 on a love of Chicago, its people and tech — as a social network and blogging platform. We gave local startups a sense of community and platform on which to tell their stories.
Light Bulb Moment
We learned that startups were attracting talent just by participating in our community. Refocusing our energies, we built a new model for tech recruitment to harness the power of content and community.
A Revolution in Recruitment
Today, our content and community give tech professionals insights into hiring companies nationwide — the kind no job board could ever deliver.
As we grow, we remain committed to our origins. In everything we do, we focus on uniting tech talent and the tech industry — two forces that are powerful alone but invincible together.
