Mission: To empower small businesses and nonprofits to grow customer relationships and their business.
“To be successful, you have to make sure people are hearing your voice.”
These were some of the words of advice from Constant Contact's Chief Transformation Officer, Kim Simone, who spoke to hundreds of our employees this afternoon who tuned in for a special 'Women in Tech' event.
The session, titled 'Being a Leader in Your Own Skin,' was moderated by Ann-Marie McCarthy, Endurance International Group’s Vice President of Procurement, and also included opportunities for employees to ask career-growth questions to both Kim and Ann-Marie.
Recently, we set up a Marketing Helpline Booth in New York’s Grand Central Terminal to offer free marketing advice to anyone who stopped by. Here's what our Director of Content, Dave Charest, learned after two days of conversations (plus, his advice for small business owners): http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMvad
What we do
We create great, easy-to-use tools that help small businesses and nonprofits do online marketing—and get amazing results. But we don’t just offer tools to help them create email newsletters, surveys, events, Facebook promotions, online listings, and more. We also provide the award-winning support and free marketing resources to help them use them effectively and successfully.
Where it all started
Constant Contact was founded as “Roving Software” in 1995, in a cramped attic in Brookline, Massachusetts. Back then, email was just a way for friends to communicate online. But our founders saw what it could be: a valuable marketing tool that would help small businesses level the playing field in the battle against big business.
But we didn’t just stop at email. We added online surveys, event management, social campaigns, local deals, and online listings management.
It probably goes without saying, but we left that attic a long time ago. Headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, we also call Colorado, Florida, New York City, San Francisco, and London home as well.
To support it all, we ramped up our coaching and support operations, adding online chat, email, and tons of local classes and seminars for face-to-face local learning. It’s what sets us apart from our competition in a really major way.
Through it all, we kept to our mission: to empower small businesses and nonprofits to grow customer relationships and succeed.
Every day we find new ways to build on our commitment to small businesses. That doesn’t just mean more powerful tools and new services; it’s initiatives like our Small Business Innovation Loft. It’s a free program designed to support startups and help them bring ideas that could benefit small businesses and nonprofits to market. That’s the vision for Constant Contact’s future; more opportunities to revolutionize the formula for small business success.
At Constant Contact, we build software products and provide marketing services to make small businesses and nonprofits more successful. So you could say we have an immediate impact on our neighbors, small business owners, and community. When you work at Constant Contact, you’ll always feel good about what you do, and you’ll see those positive impacts right away! We love what we do, and we're good at it, too. We earn a lot of recognition, like Stevie Awards and Deloitte's Technology Fast 500. Our people are a critical part of our success, and we celebrate our employees with service awards, monthly "Wow" awards to recognize great accomplishments, and sometimes at the spur of the moment, just because.
We hire seriously awesome people who are able to lead change and focus on results. We tend to be a collaborative, smart, friendly, and innovative bunch. We're big on social responsibility, and have volunteer time, an annual charity auction, local scholarships, and more.
We like to say we have the entrepreneurial culture of a start up, with the resources of a big company. And we put our money where our mouth is with regular Innovation Jams, our amazing InnoLoft), collaborative workspaces, informative Lunch + Learns, and more. We like to get cool stuff done, fast. So if you want a once-in-lifetime opportunity to put your career in the fast lane, we want to talk to you.
Benefits and Perks
We've got the stuff you'd expect from a great company, like a competitive salary, unlimited vacation time, and standing desk options. But we've also got some fun perks like big parties for milestones, free soda and coffee, and occasional lunches—and don’t forget to ask us about Beer Cart Fridays. Here's a list:

I have been working at Constant Contact full-time (More than a year)
Its incredible in this day an age a company, that cares about their employees esp in the sense of realizing that while work is important there are other factors that make employees the best that they can be. Constant Contact does this in a number of ways. In addition, this is a great company if you want to learn new skills which could lead to other opportunities.
Innovation is an important factor but wish there was more of an emphasis.
Very friendly team - welcoming and open. Met with a few people from different departments. Everyone provided a unique perspective and was helpful. Seems like the company is in a period of transition - but the culture seems positive and people motivated.
