Working at URDB:
URDB World Records is an open platform for human achievement, built
on a belief that everyone on earth can be the world’s best at something.
Based in the heart of New York City, we’re a small team with a big
idea, looking for extraordinary people to help us as we set out to
invent the future.

Why work at URDB?
Like we say, we truly believe everyone has potential to be a world
champion. That philosophy is how we run our company, too. Though our
management team has a clear vision on where URDB is heading, we
encourage employees to spread their wings and bring their own
awesomeness to the table. New ideas are always welcomed.
We just moved into a large office on Canal Street, an easy walk from
tons of subways and even better, a ridiculous number of tasty Chinatown
meals. There’s a ton of natural light, plants everywhere, a napping
room and a ping-pong table on the way. When we do segments on Late Night
With Jimmy Fallon, the whole team comes along. Yes, we work our butts
off, but we make sure to have a ton of fun along the way.
More than anything, we believe in what we’re building. We freakin’
love world records. Coming in each morning and seeing a pile of new
submissions never ceases to thrill us. People return from vacation and
say stuff like, “You know, I was actually excited to get back.”
What are the benefits?
URDB is a young company, but we’re comfortably financed and seeing
significant revenue from both brand partnerships and media deals. Beyond
fair compensation, we offer a meaningful stake in the company’s
long-term success to those who join our team and commit to helping us
grow.

To apply: If what we’re doing tickles your fancy, please do two things:

1. Set an awesome world record and submit it to our site: http://urdb.org/set-a-record

2. Send your resume, relevant social media links and a note of introduction to job[at]urdb.org
