Mission: We’re on a mission to evolve the ways brands engage consumers through creativity and technology.

PlayNetwork – Why Work For Us?


PlayNetwork is a consumer engagement company that helps brands use entertainment media to connect with customers, in-store and beyond.

Entertainment media (music, video, and other content formats) is a powerful brand component that adds what other things can’t: emotion. Using emotional content as part of a customer experience – from campaign, to store environments, to web, to mobile – heightens the feeling and connection consumers have with a brand.

By combining creative insights, branded content, delivery platforms, and behavioral data, PlayNetwork creates entertainment media experiences for over 400 brands spanning 100,000 locations in over 120 countries, our work touching more than 100 million people every day.

In 1996 we began with custom in-store music for businesses. Today, PlayNetwork is a leading global consumer engagement company providing creative strategy, original and curated content, distribution platforms, and consumer insights—all under one roof.

The result? Experiences that engage consumers around the globe, connecting them with brands through emotional content.

    I have been working at PlayNetwork full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are great with a fun company culture. Creative environment with music and video professionals. Live concerts every month, happy hour and off site company parties.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and ownership and cross departmental communication. Wage is not commensurate to the high cost of living in the area. Departments are very siloed. Pay is low range for market. Many layoffs after corporate merger.

    Advice to Management

    Provide professional managerial training and development classes. Improve cross department communication. Merit increases should be be commensurate with the cost of living increases in the area.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at PlayNetwork (Redmond, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Three back to back 45 min interviews with developers and hiring manger. Technical questions and understanding a must. Agile SDLC experience preferred. Phone screen with HR, then 1:1 interviews in same day. Business casual environment. Very cool laid back offices in Redmond. No opinion on overall experience. The hiring manager changed his/her mind regarding what role they wanted to fill and altered the job description.
