    Approves of CEO

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


    There has been constant change since I joined Brightcove, however, it is all for the best. The new CEO and executive team have a clear vision for the future and path to success which they are transparent about it with employees. There is no guessing what our focus is anymore, we are one (global) team that is focused on delivering the best for our customers.

    Marketing has seen the biggest change. There are no more favorites, everyone is treated with respect and opinions are valued. The silos have been removed and the team is working together better than it ever has and that is largely due to our new CMO. All marketing departments (product, revenue, & comms) reporting into one leader has made us more efficient with less frustration. The VPs have been invaluable in setting expectations and ushering their teams through the reorg with a positive attitude.

    While its not perfect (yet), it is above and beyond what it was 6 months ago, and still trending in the right direction.


    With any big reorg there are still a lot of moving pieces and work to be done but the right team and people are in place to make this successful for everyone at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, the company seems to be moving in the right direction, and it's definitely helping increase employee morale again.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brightcove (Cambridge, MA) in July 2009.


    Met with 3 people, 2 developers and 1 tester. All friendly people, young vibrant atmosphere. Questions were on algorithms, design patterns and some brain teasers.
