Brandwatch is much more than just a social technology company.

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.

Magnetic

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.

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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Brandwatch in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very quick phone interview with a young lady on the phone. Unfrofessional, random questions were asked with a main purpose to establish my accent. If you are foreigner and applied for a job with an English recruiter and an English manager means you will never successed in gaining employment, simply because they are looking to hire the English because he or she the English. Guys, just put a title with capital letters "Foreigners must not apply" in the job spec and it saves your and foreign candidates time.
