MediaAlpha is Seattle’s Top-Ranked Small Workplace in 2020

Built In Seattle also ranked MediaAlpha as No. 2 in the overall list of Top Places to Work in Seattle



SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)MediaAlpha, the leading real-time programmatic technology platform specializing in vertical search and metasearch, tops the list of Best Small Companies to work for in Seattle, according to the recently released Built In Seattle 2020 rankings.

In addition, the company placed second on the overall Top 100 list of best Seattle workplaces. MediaAlpha was also ranked sixth of 50 on the Best Perks and Benefits list.

Built In, an online resource and community for technology employers and professionals, annually ranks the top workplaces in eight major U.S. tech hub cities, including Seattle. Companies are algorithmically ranked based on compensation and employer benefits identified in the Built In database.

MediaAlpha was chosen from among thousands of Seattle-based companies in part for its extensive benefits list. Built In weighted the following categories of employer perks and benefits in order of importance to job seekers on its platform:

  • Health & Wellness
  • Financial Planning & Stability
  • Flexible Work Environment
  • Diversity & Culture
  • Professional & Social Impact
  • Perks & Discounts

MediaAlpha offers more than 42 of Built In Seattle’s recognized benefits across these areas. The company is proud to provide comprehensive insurance and wellness offerings, paid volunteer time, 401(k) matching, performance bonuses, flexible and remote work options, generous parental leave, and more.

However, it’s the collaborative, communicative company culture at MediaAlpha’s Redmond, WA, office that keeps its 17 local team members happy.

“The vibe in the office is friendly and open,” shared one MediaAlpha team member with Built In Seattle. “We’re straightforward about the problems we’re tackling and asking questions is highly encouraged. Being clear saves us development frustration and ensures we meet our timelines consistently.”

As MediaAlpha’s Built In Seattle profile states, “we are focused on continuous improvement of our Diversity and Inclusion initiatives.”
