    What We Do

    Vurb is a search app that lets you easily find, share, and do the best things by connecting community insights, rich content, and useful services—in one simple app.

    Find and explore anything from sights to see, restaurants to try, books to read, events, music, and more. Get results in the form of easy-to-use Vurb Cards, then take action right from the Card—access reviews, make reservations, book tickets, stream TV and music, and even hire a ride.

    How We Interview & Hire

    Our interview process begins with an introduction call to help you learn more about the role, learn more about your interests, and help decide if Vurb is a mutual fit. If we move forward, we'll send out a take home exercise or move to an onsite technical screen (dependent on role). Finally, the onsite interview is usually a half day or more where you meet several key stakeholders on the team, as well as our Founder & CEO.
