Brandwatch – Why Work For Us?


Brandwatch is much more than just a social technology company.

It’s also home to over 300 people, from over 30 different nations, each nestled in one of six culturally diverse cities across the globe.

What binds us is our passion and our ambition to make the world a better place.


A lens of transparency permeates everything we do. We share revenue figures monthly and incorporate a business-wide approach of honesty with each other and our customers.


We attract the right kind of thing. Seriously good stuff happens here, and it captivates the minds of brilliant people, passionate admirers and inspiring companies around the world.


Yes, we work with data, but we place a high value on creativity. Our large in-house design team inspire original, inventive thought across the company in all that we do.


We share a common goal – we want to do something amazing. We’re always striving for better, for more. We know what we can achieve, and we collectively want to make it happen faster and better than anyone else.


“I’ve been working full-time at Brandwatch since 2012 and not a day goes by that I don’t look forward to work. I love the excitement that comes with rapid growth and a creative environment. Every single day offers something different.”


“The company’s mantra is to be bold, be brilliant. My experience of the office culture, the evolution of the business and our working environment absolutely exude that philosophy and I’m grateful to be part of that growth.”


“Within a few days of starting, it soon became clear that there was a real enthusiasm and energy for creating fantastic things here. It’s been an absolute pleasure working together with people with such obvious talent.”



“I’ve been given bundles of support towards my career goals, and have had the privilege of working with an abundance of skilled and diverse people. I’m truly proud to work for a company that feels like it actually cares about me.”



Be Bold. Be Brilliant. This is our mantra.

As a rapidly growing company, we’re always on the lookout for the very best people to join our team. Even if you don’t see a role you think you’d be perfect for, send us a CV or a note on why you think you’d be a valuable contributor to the incredible things we’re doing here. We never miss an opportunity, so why should you?

We’re a company like no other. Nowhere else will you find such a thriving hotbed of talent, as our flat hierarchy of PhDs, budding geniuses and rising stars all contribute to a rich and rewarding environment that you can be part of.

We pride ourselves on making sure every employee is both happy and inspired, and we ensure that each is best positioned to excel, even if it means creating new roles for them or mixing things up. There are no egos here, as the goals and aspirations we’re working towards are shared by all of us, for every individual to contribute towards.

If you’re talented and enthusiastic, we don’t care what your background is. We’d love to welcome you to the team so you can join us as we expand across the globe and explore incredible new lands together.

A word from the CEO

I’ve been involved with Brandwatch from the start and we have always been serious about creating something bold and brilliant. We are pioneering an exciting new area of cutting edge technology, in the fast-moving world of social media monitoring, and strive to bring our best effort and thinking into the building every single day. It’s great to run a company with so many employees burning with ideas and I love nothing more than to give them the room to explore them. Apply for a role; let’s do something amazing together.

    I have been working at Brandwatch full-time (More than a year)


    - Great work / life balance; arrive on-time in the morning, leave on time at the end of the day.
    - Great company culture; games and other fun stuff to do whilst at and out of work.
    - Amazing place to develop your skills in whatever discipline you work in.
    - Possibility of progression seems healthy.
    - Salary is reasonable
    - Some lovely perks; free food, massages, juicebar and pastries.

    Whilst I could not say the job is perfect, in the real world this seems about as good as it gets. It's a genuinely fun and stimulating place to be, as well as a good place to develop a career.


    With that said, the product is not as polished as it could be which can cause frustrations to filter down.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on making a brilliant product that is consistently reliable and works as it should - new features are great but the basics need to be sorted and kept nailed down. People will feel really good working on something they really believe in.

    In terms of the general culture at the company though, that's great so keep doing what you're doing.

    Graduate Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience


    I applied online. I interviewed at Brandwatch.


    Following submitting the initial application form I was offered a telephone interview. After exchanging a number of emails with the interviewer this interview was scheduled in. However I never received the call, or any responses to my emails trying to determine why the interview hadn't taken place. I then contacted the general jobs email contact to ask if the role is still open, to which I also received no response. This has been a disappointing experience as I was really excited about the company and the role, and also slightly bewildering in a sense that it appears that I have been ignored by more than one person at Brandwatch.
