Our Culture

Our Culture & Core Principles

At LendingTree, we work hard and we have fun doing it! We have a commitment to invest in our employees and to nurture an entrepreneurial, fun and dynamic work environment.

  • Build truly outstanding products Build truly outstanding products for consumers and customers. We help people at incredibly important and complex times in their lives. Find breakthrough ways to surprise and delight them with insight and clarity.
  • Be open and candid Be open and candid about our successes and our shortfalls. Mistakes are fine, as long as they’re small, quick, not repeated, and we learn from them. When we celebrate wins, try to also point out why something succeeded so we can learn from that too. Be candid and honest about our business, our products, our processes, and our people.
  • Act with urgency and creativity Search for ideas everywhere, inside and outside the company. Test, debate, and develop ideas until you quickly find the best answer. Then, execute with urgency and a sense of purpose.
  • Take charge Take charge. Ask for the ball. Make a decision and stand by it. Or at least step up and propose a clear course of action, and if you can’t get an answer quickly, move out.
  • Set goals and be accountable There is never a dull moment! Sometimes your head spins and sometimes there are bumps in the road, but it is all worth it. You work with amazing people, in a dynamic environment, where good things are happening, and you have the chance to dive in to help make them happen.
  • Commit to excellence Have big ambitions. Live up to your full potential. Keep learning, and don’t be afraid to take on more responsibility and tackle larger challenges. And, to live up to your full potential as a leader, it’s critical that you empower, encourage, help, and teach others so they can reach their full potential too.

Work Environment

A little more about us

Our commitment to innovation relies on everyone being comfortable sharing ideas and opinions. Every employee is a hands-on contributor, and everyone wears several hats. Because we believe that every person is an equally important part of our success, no one hesitates to pose questions directly to Doug (our CEO!) or any of the leaders at LendingTree. We may even give you a microphone to be heard, although that’s typically just for the karaoke contests.

  • We are a company that values ability just as much as experience.
  • We create leading-edge products and services that you can be proud to help develop.
  • You will see a casual setting infused with entrepreneurial spirit.
  • You will find a terrific opportunity to learn from and grow with some of the brightest people in your field
  • Become an “expert” on a subject for the company, let your ideas be heard and then help them be implemented. The best way to become a leader is to act as if you already are one!
