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.

    Pros

    - People & culture - unusually talented and nice groups of humans
    - Ambition to really do something special
    - Market leaders - great tech
    - Lots of people move up, across functions and to new countries in their roles and learn by doing/taking opportunities on, inc to C-suite

    Cons

    - Management and cultures vary by leader/manager and office
    - Culture can be a bit entitled/indulgent at times
    - Pressure, constant change, transparency, ambiguity that come with scaling this kind of company mean you see that this isn't the environment for everyone - some people struggle, some thrive

    Advice to Management

    Another big year ahead. We need better coordination across teams and more communication at the company level of key themes. We will only succeed if we focus and tough decisions are made.
