SmartBear was voted #2 by Glassdoor Employee's Choice Best Places to Work for medium sized companies in 2014 and #11 in the Boston Globe's Best Places to Work for small-to-medium sized businesses in 2013.
We're pretty proud of that!

With our tools, testers and developers can automate mundane tasks, easily track and report the success of their efforts, and build the best-performing products possible.
We ranked first overall in high tech, so if you're looking for a fast-paced, high growth company to call home, SmartBear is a great fit.

Think for a moment about the best job you ever had. What made it great? If you’re like us, you’ll say it was the people you worked with that made you enjoy coming to work every day.
Our SmartBears come to work to be with the best and brightest people in the software industry, but they stay because it is a great fit. In addition to working hard, we like to play hard… it’s not uncommon to find our SmartBears chilling in our rec room eating popcorn fresh from the Popcorn cart, sparring a game of foosball, shooting hoops or teeing up on the ”in-house” green.
Are you ready for a new “best job you ever had”?

I have been working at SmartBear Software full-time (more than an year)Pros
After seen many changes in the company, today SmartBear is still a strong company and still definitely a great place to work:
- There are some great people working here. Ones that know what work requires but also they have fun and know that regular interactions do not require memos or red tape
- Some tough new management came in this year. But they've positioned the company for growth and through the tough questioning they set some very realistic goals
- SmartBear is about to move much closer to Boston, so (at least for me) the commute is going to improve
- There's still a ton of opportunity for growth. And in my years here I've always been encouraged and supported to take on anything that benefits the product I am working forCons
