Mission: Everbridge was founded in 2002, catalyzed by the Sept. 11 attacks, with the goal of improving the way organizations communicate and locate their people in critical situations. Everbridge is also committed to the success of its team members.
Why did you decide to join Everbridge?
Kerry McDonough: The energy everyone has about what they are doing. Everyone knows they are making a tangible difference, no matter their role. No matter where people are in the world, we help keep them safe. We are showing people, “Here’s how you can prevent a dangerous situation,” and “Here’s how you can quickly respond to an emergency.” That impact is powerful.

How would you describe the culture at Everbridge?
MJ McCarthy: Everyone here really cares about what we do. That drives our culture, whether it’s volunteering at events or celebrating feel-good stories, like how a missing child was found because the police used our solution to help alert the public. Our culture is different from anywhere else I’ve worked, and it comes from being proud of our mission. Going from a tiny little company to public in 14 years, being among really good people, selling a really good product. I don’t know if any company will compare to the fulfillment we all feel here. I think I’m here for the long run.

Organizations using Everbridge include:
Mobility, the rise of the anytime/anywhere workforce, and global unpredictability continue to converge at an unprecedented scale. Since 2001, Everbridge has been there for clients across all industries and government sectors, redefining the market for unified critical communications. During critical events, Everbridge removes global, regional, and technology barriers, enabling organizations to quickly communicate and collaborate with the right context.
The company’s inception in 2001 was no coincidence—our co-founders created Everbridge with a vision to help people communicate more effectively, following the tragic events of 9/11. The painful lessons learned during that day can easily be applied to other emergencies and critical events. Governments need to more effectively balance communication with response and action; hospitals, universities, and other public institutions need to bridge technology gaps to improve communication; and businesses have to deploy safeguards to keep their mobile, global workforce safe, secure, and productive.
Everbridge is now the leader in unified critical communications, with more than 2,500 clients around the world relying on us every day to be better prepared, to make better decisions, and to communicate and collaborate quickly and confidently during emergencies, operational incidents, and continuity events.
Working at Everbridge
As Everbridge continues to solidify its place as the leader in unified critical communications, we continually seek talented and experiencedengineering, sales, and business professionals to join our growing team. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about technology, communications, and the opportunity to transform an industry. If this sounds like you, we want to talk to you.
We are as dedicated to the success of our team members, as the success of our product. Here are few reasons people say they love working at Everbridge:
BENEFITS AT EVERBRIDGE
We recognize how important your peace of mind is. That’s why we provide you and your dependents with access to a quality employee benefits program to support your long-term health and wellness. We offer exceptional benefits including:
Stock-market investors welcomed Friday’s debut of Everbridge Inc., boosting shares of the Burlington-based emergency communications software company 27 percent in its first day of trading.
More than 900 counties, cities, businesses, transportation authorities and hospitals — including the state of Florida — used Everbridge to send millions of messages to keep people in the storm’s path informed, connected, and safe.
Fifteen minutes after the Oak Ridge Police department used Nixle to send a local alert about a missing boy, it announced that the boy had been found, and Oak Ridge Police Chief James Akagi updated the community, again using Nixle.
Everbridge has added six solutions to its platform since 2012 — two in 2016 alone — and we expect that pace to continue. Each solution is built independently with its own distinct code base. A few examples:
Enables organizations to notify millions of residents and employees in an emergency, automatically varying contact paths — from text, to email, to phone — until the person responds they are safe.
Allows organizations to quickly send targeted messages to different populations (e.g. a city could create template alerts for those affected, those in surrounding areas, and police or fire departments).
Pulls location data from multiple sources to automate communications to the right people, at the right time. For instance, helping organizations quickly identify and confirm the safety of employees near a terrorist attack.

Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Everbridge (Lansing, MI) in February 2018.
It was a half-day interview with various members of software development team. Much easier than I was expecting so I thought it was entry level- mid-level position; however, I was told they wanted someone with lots more development experience.
