BlackBerry – Why Work With Us?


Why BlackBerry?

The Time is Right 

What we once did for smartphones is what we’re now doing for EoT – envisioning, enabling and securing new forms of communication that are connecting the business world in phenomenal new ways. We have the most complete and advanced end-to-send solutions to enable EoT, and our ideas lead the way in the hottest markets like cybersecurity, SaaS, neural networks and autonomous vehicles.

Legacy of Security 

We underwent a profound business transformation to get into our current leadership position, but the one thing that will never change is the key ingredient on which we built our business more than 30 years ago: secure software. Legendarily secure software.

Targeted Innovation

In the next couple of years, the cost of cybercrime will rocket past $2 trillion USD. Who can enterprises trust to keep their assets and endpoints safe from attack? With over 39,000 patents and 80 certifications on our resume, BlackBerry has an unparalleled track record of security innovations that are now driving triple-digit adoption rates for our EoT software.

Here's what our employees have to say:


Our Determination is Second to None

Companies do not undergo successful transformations without smart, dedicated, creative employees who are driven to succeed. That’s how we win awards like these:

Our Workplace

BlackBerry has offices in more than 30 countries, each one well-equipped for convenience, safety, comfort and productivity. When it’s time to take a break, our campuses offer a range of on-site amenities and proximity to local communities.
 

 

Giving Back

We think an active lifestyle is one of the keys to success and happiness. That includes being active in the community.

BlackBerry is a proud and determined civic leader. Our employees are passionate, mobilized and empowered to actively participate in volunteer activities and environmentally friendly initiatives everywhere we live and work.


 

Realize Your Potential

We have immense pride in our Apprentice, Co-op and intern students. In you, we see the next amazing generation of BlackBerry®.

It’s our pleasure to see young talent grow and develop, both personally and professionally. And it’s also our specialty, as demonstrated by award-winning student programs that are designed with the same level of thought, innovation and investment we’ve always put into our legendary products.

Take the first steps of your career journey with BlackBerry and you will be find an exhilarating world filled with enlightening experiences, the top minds in their fields and endless opportunities limited only by your desire to explore new things.


The Chance of a Lifetime

We have a wide variety of openings for candidates across all business areas. This is not a “summer job” kind of place. You will work hard, you will be challenged and you will gain invaluable experience with other super smart, highly motivated classmates. All at a cutting-edge software company that has one of the world’s most respected brands and innovations that are changing the world.

If you’re looking for the next great thing and aren’t afraid to be put to the test, you will have an incredibly rich and rewarding experience at BlackBerry.
