    Our Employee Value Proposition:

    BV’s Impact on the Market:

    We are shaping the way people shop, putting the shopper experience at the heart of everything we do.  We partner with the world’s largest brands and our network’s impact is comparable to Facebook, LinkedIn and Google.  If you shop or research online, it’s very likely that you’ve already interacted with Bazaarvoice. With market leading technology, shopper data that spans over a million shoppers and a billion shopper interactions a month, our future is limitless.

    What this means in R&D:

    Working on something real that people use on a daily basis in an environment that celebrates engineering, has been and continues to be a key factor in the success of Bazaarvoice. There are very few opportunities in the market that allow you be part of a company that delivers products that are used by millions of people every day.

    Professional Learning, Growth and Impact:

    You can grow your career, your skills and professional experiences by working across a breadth of business initiatives, different global regions and innovative solutions. You have the opportunity to see tangible results from your direct contributions and build your own brand at Bazaarvoice.  With new products and markets on the horizon, there has never been a more exciting time to be at Bazaarvoice.

    What this means in R&D:

    It is clear that managers want what’s best for both the company and people. Here in Bazaarvoice there is a wealth of knowledge among the teams that is shared in a collaborative, productive way. Getting to work at our scale with the level of autonomy given, is rare. You are encouraged regularly to be the best version of your professional self at work. You are in charge of your own learning but given the space and time to own it completely. We don’t just say it- we mean it!

    Great People:

    You will work with and help recruit bright, experienced, passionate and humble colleagues that bring diverse perspectives on a daily basis.  We are open minded, respectful and transparent.

    What this means in R&D:

    There are no ego’s here in R&D. You are surrounded by smart people who build world class software but who never forget to have fun whilst they do it. Working in an environment where you work together to share knowledge and skills is vital in helping you within your career as an engineer. Both colleagues and managers don’t just give support but focus on listening.  


    You will be part of a vibrant culture where we celebrate, we collaborate, and we come together generously to elevate one another & our community. We promote open dialogue at all levels and are generous with our time and ideas.

    What this means in R&D:

    In R&D, we don’t look for a culture ‘fit’ but for a culture add! The atmosphere, not only among teammates, but across the wider engineering department (and beyond!) makes coming to work a pleasure. Working as part of engineering, you are guaranteed to work with bright, smart people who will always have something else to bring to the table.
