Come work with us.

We're looking for great people to join our growing team.

At a glance

With Prolific, we're changing how research on the internet is done. Katia and Phelim started by building a marketplace that connects researchers (from both Academia and industry) with instant, high quality, global research participants. Now, as a growing team, the bigger vision is to build the most powerful and trusted platform for behavioral research.

Our two-sided marketplace and ambitious growth plans come with many interesting challenges around how to accelerate growth, as we move from running thousands of studies a month, to tens of thousands. We hope to become the go-to infrastructure layer for "human responses" that empowers anybody – individuals, businesses, and governments – to make more evidence-based decisions.

We've been part of Y Combinator's Summer 2019 batch, raised $1.4M in seed funding, we're distributed across Europe and we're already profitable.

If you'd like to know about us and what we do, please read our Prolific blog and our Employee handbook.

Our core values

We are trustworthy.
Transparency, openness and trust are built into our company DNA. Our researchers can trust that they’ll get high quality results out of the data they collect through our platform and our participants can trust that they will be treated fairly and with respect.
We are curious.
We’re dedicated and fuelled by wanting to make the world a better place. By constantly learning and enhancing our knowledge we can gain a deeper understanding of people and the world we live in. A better understanding of people + better products = a better world.
We are focused.
We think rigorously about problems and solve them systematically, but we also move fast and with focus. Our singular goal is to build the most powerful and trusted platform for research on the internet. We love our users and we're focused on making Prolific as valuable as possible for them.
We are friendly.
From our company culture to our customer service, we’re thoughtful, helpful and warm. When things get tough, we show empathy, kindness, and support towards each other, our users, and any other stakeholders. We value diversity and always strive to be inclusive.
We are ambitious.
We have big growth ambitions, but not ruthlessly so. We want to empower research that can make actual change in the world, and we believe that the potential of people data is yet to be fully leveraged.

How we work

Prolific is a Remote-First company. We want to support people to do their best work in an environment that enables them to be their best self.

We are async by default.
We lean on asynchronous processes and communication... but we still value sync time.
We document everything.
Making documentation is everyone's responsibility. No one should be a bottleneck for information!
We focus on automation.
We automate where we can, from tasks to processes, so we don't have to rely on sync time.
We default to transparency.
We are transparent not just internally but externally too! Providing feedback and accountability wherever possible.
We provide self-serve information and encourage self-learning.
Everyone should be able to find the information they need for themselves. If it's not readily available, this gives us the opportunity to find what's missing and build our knowledge base.

How we interview & hire

We believe that interviews should be conversations where we learn more about each other. Here is a basic outline of our interview process:

  1. Initial Interview - You'll have a 30 - 45 minute interview with two members of the team where you'll have the opportunity to ask about the company and the role, and we'll ask you questions about your experiences and goals.
  2. Assignment - There will be a 2 hour assignment that evaluates skills required for the role. You'll be compensated with a £50 voucher for completing the task because we know your time is valuable!
  3. Final Interview - The final stage is a 1.5 - 2 hour interview where we'll deep dive into your past experiences, goals, motivations, and skills. You'll speak with two to three members of the team and - as always - have an opportunity to ask questions about the role and company.
