    Kiabi Reinvents Employee Communication and Collaboration with Jive

    However, it is a real challenge for Kiabi to keep all of its employees informed and connected, especially since about 80% of them work in deskless roles. As part of the company's recent transformation initiative, it is adopting a Jive Interactive Intranet to give workers a delightful digital environment for use cases like collaboration, communication, information sharing and enterprise search.

    Fragmentation Plagues Modern Businesses, But There's a Cure

    Remember when your workplace was an actual "place," and everybody and everything you needed was right there, within easy reach? Probably not-unless you worked for a very small business, or in another century. These days, you're more likely to be working with colleagues scattered across dozens of locations, and with information and processes similarly scattered across dozens of systems and apps.

Jive Software – Why Work For Us?


Jive isn’t like most companies. We’re serious about changing the world. Making a difference. And having a lot of fun in the process. If you just want a job, Jive is not for you. But if you want your next career move to be a life-defining experience, then Jive will feel like home. We’re looking for people who are wicked smart, passionate, fun, innovative, collaborative, courageous, social results producers and rainmakers.


To empower people and organizations to work better together. 


Collaboration: We support and inspire each other to do the best work of our lives.

Innovation: We tirelessly explore new ideas. We refuse to accept the status quo. We are creating the future. 

Results: We help our customers and their communities achieve results that exceed their expectations.

Integrity: We are honest and transparent in all we do.

Fun: We are transforming an industry and having a great time doing it. 


We enable organizations to advance their mission by capturing the best of what every person has to offer. We enable people to do the best work of their lives with technology that adapts to their way - not the other way.



Jive Pride: We are passionate about our vision, our product, and changing the way people work. 

Customers First: Our best days are when we help our customers be successful and open up new possibilities for companies to work better together. 

Jivers Rock: We are gritty GNAKS (Good Natured A** Kickers) who take on big challenges and are relentless in our commitment to help each other be successful. 

Push the Boundaries: We are constantly curious, always striving to innovate and deliver exceptional outcomes. 

One Jive: Our values of community, teamwork and diversity are unwavering. 


Work Hard. Have Fun. Give Back.

We work hard. We're years ahead of the competition and we like keeping it that way. And we don't just make and sell our solutions, we use them. Every day. To collaborate, ideate, imagine, argue, rescue, solve and create.

We have fun. We don't take ourselves too seriously. And we like to celebrate. There's always a happy hour, Green Machine Race or holiday gathering to take our minds off work.

And we give back. No matter how busy we are, we make time to contribute through volunteering and fundraising. Some of the causes we support include Adopt a Family, Walk for the cure, food drives and more. We even give you paid time-off to volunteer for your favorite cause.



Below are some of the benefits we offer to all Jivers in the US, but it doesn’t stop there. We have employees around the world, and and we strive to offer competitive rewards programs and benefits everywhere.

Programs for Students

Jive offers a world-class summer Intern Program for top students at our offices in Campbell, San Francisco, Portland, UK and Israel. It’s a great opportunity to work with some really smart, experienced and knowledgeable professionals tackling some of the most important challenges in technology and business today. We have openings in all departments, from marketing to engineering to product development. We’re also a co-founding member of the Portland/PSU Collaborative Education Program (PCEP), connecting Computer Science majors with downtown Portland tech companies for 2-year rotational internships.

Real Work, Real Accomplishments

Many of us got our start as interns, so we know how life-changing great internships can be. We treat interns like full-fledged employees, working on projects that really matter to our business and to the marketplace. You’ll have access to senior management and a chance to learn from and collaborate with some of the best in the business – in an environment that’s supportive and fun. You’ll come away with the kind of hands-on experience and real-world accomplishments that can launch a successful career.

What our Interns have to say

"Throughout the summer I was doing meaningful, impactful work for the company that truly was making a difference––not just the typical 'intern' work one may expect. I was able to learn from my mentors and improve my own communication capabilities, as well as grow as an overall person." - Kaitlyn Hopkins, 2016 Summer Intern

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Jive Software.


    Spoke to three different people, all super nice, but no follow up. Once i reached out I got rejected with no reasoning, after a week of silence. Wasn't sure who the right person to get in touch with was, had emailed a recruiter and had phone calls with a hiring manager and head of department I think. Was really excited about Jive and the feedback I got honestly made me think I got the offer, but no :(
