Company Updates

  • Austin was recently named the best city in the world for tech, according to the World Economic Forum. We love it- it's our HQ's home and our engineering hub. Read more about why Austin beat out San Francisco below.

    Step aside San Francisco: the best cities in the world for tech

    When it comes to tech, San Francisco on the west coast of the US has a well established reputation as being the world's number one city. But San Francisco's crazy living costs led real estate firm Savills to choose another US city as its number one tech hub in its Tech Cities 2017 report, which ranks 22 cities across the world "at the forefront of the global tech industry."

  • Our game room (with adjacent secret room!) was featured by Built in Austin. It's one of many spots to work or relax in our Austin HQ. Read more below!

    5 Austin companies pick the coolest spot in their tech offices

    Austin tech offices are often designed to reflect the culture, people and style of the teams who inhabit them. For some lucky spots, that means commissioned artwork, a unique aesthetic and vibe, and a layout that cultivates both collaboration and transparency.

    I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been a BV'er for over two years now and I love working here just as much as I did on my first day. Like every company, we are constantly going through change. The Execs are transparent about what the company is trying to do and I appreciate that. Love my team. I have the best VPs, managers and teammates I could ask for. My ideas and opinion are respected. As for the company itself, great culture, we celebrate our achievements, BV offers a competitive salary with room for growth, excellent benefits, flexible hours with work from home options. BV truly understands the importance of work-life balance. I could never go back to the old school management style of the corporate world.

    Cons

    We all work hard and play hard. When it's time to work, we get it done, even if that means working on the weekends or in the late evening sometimes. This doesn't happen often, but it's a trade off for having so much flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Thank you for keeping all of us moving forward. #OTOD

    Engagement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bazaarvoice (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The interview is a four step process. You start with a quick phone interview with a recruiter, followed by a phone interview with the person that would be your manager. Next is an on-site interview where you have one-on-one interviews with multiple people from the department you are interviewing in. The final step is a presentation round with the team you had the one-on-one interviews with.
