Clients such as Vizio, Oakley, Anthem Healthcare and Citizens Bank leverage our data and services improving their business performance every day. 


WhitePages PRO focuses on the needs of clients by providing best and most trusted contact information for use in anti-fraud and call center applications. For customers who need to manually access our data, we provide a high-performance web interface exposing the critical information required for business success.


If you're looking for a challenging opportunity with a great company, we're looking for you! We are looking for engineers to expose our Search APIs to our customers, to create an efficient way to support huge, on-demand batch requests and to design and build our billing system. These positions are based in Downtown Seattle office where you’ll work side by side with some of the best technical talent in the Pacific Northwest. 


Members of the WhitePages team understand how to use Java and Ruby on Rails to marshal high transaction searches on massive quantities of data. Try searching and delivering results for all of the people, locations, telephones and business in the US and Canada to 40MM unique users per month. As a software engineer on the PRO team, you’ll have a voice in product design and strategic decisions around product feature sets. You’ll design architecture, write code and get in at the ground level of the fastest growing segment of WhitePages’ business. You’ll have the ability to make a difference and reap the benefits of a company that is established and takes on huge goals, but executes in a way that every team member's contributions are visible and clearly impact each of our customers every day.


Because we hiring several engineers to build a new team we have the flexibility to hire a range of profiles from senior level engineers and those just getting started in their engineering career to focus on back-end, middle and front-end challenges. If you have a CS degree, write clean, readable and maintainable code that works (yeah, your code has to work)…you’re almost there. We’d love it if you’ve worked with Ruby and better yet with Java too. Still, if you’re fluent in more than one language (Perl, Ruby, Java, Python, C#/C++/C) and have worked with database development, algorithms, data structures, networking, database design and optimization, then you’ve got what we need. Throw in experience working in Open Source internet platforms and you’ll move to the front of the line.
