Series A

Our mission is very simple: to bring you the most honest and trustworthy opinions on where to eat around the world. Utilizing our full-time staff of trained writers, we're able to cut through the noise and provide a reliable and consistent point of view.

Across the web, iOS, Android, and our messaging service, Text Rex, our goal is to build the best tools to help search for the perfect restaurant for every situation.

In March 2018, The Infatuation acquired Zagat from Google. Zagat is one of the oldest brands in this space and we have plans to relaunch it as a community-driven platform with a focus on expanding our ability to provide trustworthy and personalized restaurant intel at scale.

Together, they'll be the best restaurant discovery tools in the world.

Why join us?
  • Growth; We've grown both our users and revenue 100% year over year. We're profitable but have raised money to allow us to scale and take bigger swings.

  • Culture; We all believe in the mission and actively use our products. Between team dinners and events, we're always eating or drinking out. Lunch is provided every day and we eat as a team whenever we can.

  • Team; Our team comes from Palantir, Kickstarter, Tumblr, Vimeo, and Vine. We're committed to building great products with the best technology. Our team is small so everyone gets ownership and opportunity to dig in to what they're interested in.

  • Work-life Balance; We work hard, but we also know that time off is critical. That’s why we encourage every full time employee to take a minimum of 13 days vacation each year. We also close our offices during the last week of December to relax, recharge, and get ready for the New Year

Working at The Infatuation
Generous Vacation

We work hard, but we also know that time off is critical. That’s why we encourage every full time employee to take a minimum of 13 days vacation each year. We also close our offices during the last week of December to relax, recharge, and get ready for the New Year.

Free Food

Lunch is provided Monday through Friday in all of our offices, and for remote employees as well. We also encourage people eating away from their desks and in the company of co-workers whenever possible, such that we may interact as human beings and spend time together.

Health Insurance

Our healthcare coverage includes medical, dental, and vision insurance. We subsidize much of the costs, so each employee pays a reasonable out-of-pocket amount.

401(k) Contribution

Planning for your future is important. That’s why we offer a 401K plan to all full time employees.

Team Activities

We’re social - and not just on Instagram. We host over 50 events every year, and encourage staff to attend whenever possible. Frequent company outings and offsites are also a great way to get to know your teammates better.
