WordStream – Why Work For Us?


Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

As one of the fastest-growing companies in Massachusetts, our growth goals are ambitious, and we want the brightest, most talented people to join us to help us meet and exceed our goals.

Our offices at Boston’s 101 Huntington Avenue tower not only feature stunning views of the city, we also have:

  • Fridges stocked with free drinks and snacks
  • Open-plan collaborative spaces that foster teamwork and community
  • Two kegerators and cold-brew iced coffee on tap
  • Darts, ping-pong, and foosball
  • And all of the other bells and whistles you’d expect at a growing start up!

Because we believe in complete transparency, every employee has direct access to our executive team. Best of all, our CEO, a former engineer himself, knows us all by name.

We’ve Got the Right Stuff

If you’re looking for an easy job, WordStream is definitely not the place for you. You need to be smart, flexible, creative, and quick on your feet if you’re going to cut it here. Our engineering team works with the Open Source stack, including Python, JavaScript, Linux, PostgreSQL, Knockout.js, Git, and more. And as a Google Premier Partner, we get to work with the latest Google APIs all day long. We spend our time solving hard technical challenges - distributed architecture, large datasets (multiple TBs of data), growing customer base, multiple vendor APIs, etc. You know you want a part of that!

Something’s Brewing.

At WordStream, we only accept the best. The best employees, the best software… and even the best beer. And what better way to ensure quality than to do it ourselves? Our software engineers not only code some sweet Python, they also brew some mean growlers. Stop by our Back Bay office and try some home-brewed beer straight from the kegerator. With a rotating selection, you’ll find something to compliment the office snacks quite nicely, we’re sure.

WordStream After Hours

Elbow room and space to grow are great, but there’s a down side to tremendous growth: we miss each other! Now that we’re spread across 3 floors of a modern Back Bay high-rise, mingling with our friends and colleagues isn’t as easy. What’s a growing, fun, and social company to do? After-hours outings, with drinks and apps on WordStream, of course! Have a few laughs with someone from another floor or chat up one of the execs or new hires. And with our central Back Bay location, we never have to go to the same place twice!

All Work and No Play? No Way.

We’re a pretty laid-back bunch, but all bets are off when it comes to office competition. We take our office sports pretty seriously! Whether it’s a dart match, a foosball game, or a heated ping pong battle, professional titles are ignored, and WordStream becomes a dog-eat-dog world. And it’s not just cutthroat office-letics that get us into a competing state of mind. We’ve never met a sports bracket we could leave blank, our sales team displays their poker faces at our card nights, and our gamers duke it out online and on boards.

Big Company Benefits with Small Company Perks

We offer the best combination of big- and small-company benefits.

  • Stock options
  • Comprehensive health and dental
  • 401K plan
  • Paid maternity/paternity leave
  • Unlimited vacation time – that you can really use!
  • Ping pong, foosball, darts
  • Free snacks and drinks

When you pair our vibrant culture with our commitment to employee satisfaction, the result is a dynamic and productive work environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WordStream (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple, but highly unorganized. Phone screen (~35 minutes) which was great, followed by a week of silence, contact from another random person, who then got switched to another person, and another week of delays to be brought in for a very brief (2 hour) onsite. This is when things get good- after the onsite.... nothing. No follow up. No call, no e-mail. There doesn't seem to be an actual hiring manager or team, just someone on the team looking to fill a spot appointed to taking care of it. No wonder the role is still open, poor lady is drowning in work.
