Brainshark – Why Work For Us?

Brainshark was founded in 1999 with one vision: to transform the way businesspeople create and share content.

Over the years, Brainshark has developed and launched a comprehensive product portfolio for content authoring, formal training, sales coaching and more. Today, these capabilities form the core of our sales readiness platform, comprised of comprehensive solutions that help organizations prepare their teams to make the most of every buyer interaction.

If you're a talented, creative team player, Brainshark may be your perfect fit. Our dynamic, fast-growing company is filled with smart contributors who love rolling up their sleeves. We take pride in helping companies become more productive by delivering exceptional software and superior service.

We're out in front as a leader in the exciting, rapidly growing Sales Enablement space - and have the awards to prove it.  

We value work-life balance at Brainshark and, lucky for us, like hanging out together! Our team enjoys monthly socials, 5K relays, family outings, paid volunteer time, and a free on-site gym. 

Sound great? We'd love to hear from you!

Why join the Brainshark Sales team?

A Brainshark salesperson is passionate about helping customers define their real business challenge – and then solving it. Brainshark Sales is consultative, collaborative and, at the end of the day, a family of driven competitors that love to have fun.

Our difference is that we sell what we use every single day – an innovative solution that drives sales productivity for our very own organization! Creating a buying vision is as simple as illustrating a day in your own life. Are you ready to live it with us?




Why join the Brainshark Product team?

Our Engineering team knows how to get things done. Sure, you may occasionally see a drone flying overhead or be greeted by a full-sized Captain Kirk sticker on the bathroom door, but make no mistake – these are seriously talented people with a passion for developing award-winning products.

At Brainshark, we revel in a highly collaborative environment, and our engineers love to help one another, whether it’s a lunch-and-learn or a regular gathering to share new ideas. Our wide variety of experience, backgrounds and skill sets practically guarantee that you’ll be mentored and do the mentoring.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Brainshark.


    Phone interview, nothing in-person. Very informal and the interviewer didn't really seem to care who I was, she was just looking for a body to warm a chair that knew how to use a computer.
