Company Culture

  • We love coming to work every day. Working with intelligent people to accomplish something globally ambitious is intrinsically satisfying.
  • We are profitable and growing. We are self-funded. We refuse VC money on a regular basis. Investors don’t make our decisions, we do.
  • Our small, cohesive team is gender balanced: 50% female, 50% male.
  • We’re often wrong (and that’s OK). Making mistakes show that we are innovating. We love to innovate.
  • We like walking. We even have a few treadmill desks.
  • Or find us working outside on a sunny California day overlooking our own organic garden, with fresh seasonal vegetables ready to be picked or taken home.
  • We all work from home once a week. We don't think working long start-up hours is productive or healthy. We work hard and productively, then go enjoy rich lives outside of work.
  • We like to share. We develop open source software and Creative Commons licensed content.
  • We pay top performers well.
  • We are better in person than on TV. We're delightfully quirky (but you probably figured that out already).

One warning

  • wikiHow is not hoping to be acquired or looking for a quick financial exit. We're already profitable, financially stable, and we all love working here, so we aren't in a rush to sell out. Selling might mean the end to a product that we all love working on. It is an amazing feeling to work on such a popular, high-impact product! That amazing feeling makes us smile when we wake up every day. If all of this sounds appealing to you, we encourage you to apply. If this is a bummer, then that’s okay too, we probably aren't the best fit for you right now, and that’s totally fine!
