    I have been working at Brightcove full-time (Less than a year)


    Brightcove is actively making changes to grow the business. While there are always points of contention at any company, in my opinion, I feel as though 2020 is the year Brightcove makes a big jump. If you are looking to make career move, now is the time apply!

    It has all of the snacks, ping pong, open concept, etc. etc. that every tech company has, which is nice. The view of the harbor and seaport are a plus, and the location is great.

    Leadership also wants you to grow your career. Whether it's all of the technology being invested to make jobs more efficient, flexibility when it comes to what hours you work, or taking part in new initiatives, there are ways to be a better professional. Furthermore, the customer base this company has is absolutely incredible. Getting to work with household names, and learn about the next hit companies makes it even more fun and rewarding.


    There are clearly growing pains, especially if someone has been here for years and years. If you're relatively new, or join in 2020, you need to be comfortable with change while new processes are being implemented. That can be frustrating for some people, but also can be a positive for others.

    There's not as much cross functional collaboration. I'd like to see more of this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open to change, and the feedback employees are providing. This is what will make this place better every day.
