Working at Red Ventures

Hiring in: Detroit, Remote

Red Ventures is a portfolio of digital companies, made up of hundreds of nimble teams spanning multiple industries and geographies - all working together to help people make life’s most important decisions. We have more than 4,500 employees across 5 continents.

You've likely heard of several of our brands including: Bankrate, BestColleges, CNET, Gamespot, Healthline Media, Healthgrades, Lonely Planet, MyMove, NextAdvisor, Reviews.com, Sage Mortgage, and The Points Guy (among others!). 

We believe in making every second count.

We capitalize on momentum. We know that the world is changing quickly and we act deliberately and urgently, like we’re running out of time. We value constant innovation and have a bias to action in order to get important things done.

We believe in getting better every day.

We embrace a growth mindset and focus maniacally on making our teams better – not just at review time, but every day. We value coachability, passion, and an intrinsic drive to improve. We challenge people to stay uncomfortable. We promote the spirit of debate.

We believe in winning the right way.

We stand up for what’s right. We provide outstanding experiences for our employees, customers, and partners. We invest in the communities we operate in and use our expertise to improve the world around us.

We believe everything is written in pencil.

Adaptability is our secret weapon. The bigger we get, the smaller we act, so we constantly change the way we organize our work. Flat, small teams allow us to move quickly when we can and should. We value fresh perspective and constantly challenge our own assumptions.

We believe in being great people to work with.

We hold ourselves and our teammates accountable. We take time to coach others and invest heavily in strong performers and culture carriers. We have fun, and take our work seriously – but not ourselves.

We believe in leaving the woodpile higher than we found it.

We believe that if someday you feel like it’s time to give back, then you probably took too much along the way. Our true purpose is to do all we can to positively change the trajectory of the people and communities that we touch. As long as we are clear and focused on this, our journey and our impact will be like no other.

We believe in being the change we wish to see in the world.

We believe that action expresses priorities, and we have a responsibility – as individuals and as an organization – to interrupt injustice and indifference whenever we see it. By holding ourselves accountable to being open and inclusive teammates, community members, and leaders inside the walls of RV, we aspire to set an example for others in the world to follow.
