Our employees are at the heart of our success. At Eze Software, we foster career growth at all levels within the company and encourage employees to take ownership of their careers.
Every member of our management team makes it a priority to personally invest in the potential of each individual and his or her professional development. We strongly advocate upward and lateral mobility, and most of our leaders have risen to their current roles from within our ranks.

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
The Eze Software Community Service Committee (“CSC”) actively supports the EzeSoft Charity Fund Corporation (the “EzeSoft Charity Fund”) by raising money for the EzeSoft Charity Fund and administering its donations to individuals, families, and non-profit organizations in need. The CSC also promotes and develops social awareness while ensuring corporate citizenship within all EzeSoft offices. To determine needs within our communities, the CSC actively encourages our employees to submit candidates to receive donations from the EzeSoft Charity Fund which are then considered by the CSC. The EzeSoft Charity Fund was established by EzeSoft employees in 2005 as a private foundation qualified as exempt under Section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.
For a number of years, Eze Software has been recognized as an award-winning workplace by national news sources including the Boston Business Journal, Boston Globe, and Chicago Tribune. We are proud of our recognized culture, and continue to place the utmost value on our principal asset – our employees.
We recognize that benefits are an integral part of your total compensation, so we’ve designed our benefits package to provide flexible coverage options to meet both individual and family needs. We are pleased to offer one of the top benefits packages in the industry. Benefits vary across product and global locations but typically include:

I have been working at Eze Software full-time (More than 8 years)
Having worked at Eze for close to 10 years and witnessed the growth on multiple levels I have found Eze to be the most fair and rewarding places that I have worked thus far in my career. It is an organization that truly looks out for its employees both on a professional and personal basis. Eze hires highly talented people from all walks of life and is great at maximizing everyone’s potential. Eze seeks out the opinions of its employees and puts good ideas to work. Having had tremendous growth and success in a market place that presents some extreme challenges, is a true testament that Eze has built a business and a brand that is here to last.
Like any organization that grows via investment and acquisition Eze is very fast moving and does implement change where change is due. For some this does not fit the mold for what they are looking for from their employer. You need to be up for challenges and open to change but also not afraid to voice your opinion. If you sit back and don’t contribute proactively you will get passed by.
Advice to Management
Keep modernizing, keep challenging the employees that consistently show interest in the organization. Keep seeking feedback and hit the negativity straight on. Keep being transparent so everyone knows exactly where we stand. Hire more and hire faster.
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eze Software.
The interviewer called 20 minutes late and did most of the talking. He said that I was the first person they had spoken to about the position, my resume excited his manager, and was optimistic that I would advance to the next stage. He said he'd provide his email for questions and never followed through. Three weeks later I got the automated rejection email.
