Careers At MediaAlpha

Why work with us? We embrace individualism and believe that encouraging authenticity results in happier and more productive teams.

Our Core Values

We are Curious.

We are lifelong learners, humbled by all that we don’t yet know. We believe that asking good questions is more important than having good answers. Curiosity, that leads to open-minded inquiry, is the foundation of our innovation and growth as individuals, teams, and a company.

We are Accountable.

We care enough to hold ourselves and each other accountable through feedback. With a founder’s mindset, we are hands on and fill gaps without being asked. We never pass up an opportunity to help a fellow team member. We embrace our failures as a necessary part of our growth.

We are Transparent.

When in doubt, be transparent. We are candid and impeccable with our word, with each other and with our partners. We treat others this way because this is how we expect to be treated in return.

We are Long-Term Focused.

There are no shortcuts to creating enduring value. Near-term results can be random, and true success can only be measured in years. We believe in disciplined execution, doing the right thing, and letting the results speak for themselves.

"Working on initiatives that touch many aspects of the business—from client integrations to web properties to our platform—is both interesting and rewarding."

– Yousef Noor, Front-End Software Manager
