Hello, we're Sittercity

Sittercity’s mission is to make child care finally work. As the company that pioneered tech-enabled child care, we've come a long way since 2001. We've connected millions of families and sitters, and now we’re reinventing the category we created, with technology that radically simplifies the way families and sitters connect.

Why Work with Us?

We’re engineers and designers. Operators and thinkers. Customer experts and parents who are customers ourselves. But our most important traits are the ones we share: we’re as curious about human behavior as we are about new technology, and we’re natural collaborators who push — and help — one another to make a real dent in a big problem.
We are

Passionate,

Collaborative &

Ambitious

An Insider's view of Sittercity

What are some social events your company does?

During the work day, break time can equal Mario Kart, coffee runs or ping pong. After work, we have had fun activities including Trivia Night and happy hour. For food lovers, we've had potlucks, a chili cook off, and cookie contest!

Josh

Operations Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Analytics is core to what we're building here. By leveraging data from social networks, family demographics, and existing users, we're creating a smarter matching experience for families and sitters. My team is making these data sources accessible to every team member, so we can make smarter business decisions and improve the user experience.

Director of Analytics

How does the company support your career growth?

Sittercity has allowed me to take on different projects and claim ownership in order to grow. They've supported my career decisions, like moving from operations to customer success. Every project I do matters and contributes to our overall success. Not only has Sittercity helped my career growth, they've helped me grow outside of work as well.

Customer Success Advocate

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I like to build relationships with my colleagues. Something as simple as a morning hello or a walk to grab coffee helps break down silos. I also champion diversity + inclusion efforts and facilitate company events to help build a strong culture. It's important to collaborate cross-departmentally to advance our product and best serve our families.
