    About Bazaarvoice
    At Bazaarvoice, we create smart shopping experiences. Through our expansive global network, product-passionate community & enterprise technology, we connect thousands of brands and retailers with billions of consumers. Our solutions enable brands to connect with consumers and collect valuable user-generated content, at an unprecedented scale. This content achieves global reach by leveraging our extensive and ever-expanding retail, social & search syndication network. And we make it easy for brands & retailers to gain valuable business insights from real-time consumer feedback with intuitive tools and dashboards. The result is smarter shopping: loyal customers, increased sales, and improved products.
    The problem we are trying to solve : Brands and retailers struggle to make real connections with consumers. It's a challenge to deliver trustworthy and inspiring content in the moments that matter most during the discovery and purchase cycle. The result? Time and money spent on content that doesn't attract new consumers, convert them, or earn their long-term loyalty.
    Our brand promise : closing the gap between brands and consumers.
    Founded in 2005, Bazaarvoice is headquartered in Austin, Texas with offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. For more information, visit

    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 worlds 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 People & Talent:
    Once you learn about the product it becomes very easy to understand how it impacts our clients and just how widespread usage is on a personal level and among people you know. Internally at Bazaarvoice within People and Talent this understanding and enthusiasm for what we do helps us build credibility in our conversations at work whether it be partnering with an internal manager or working to explain Bazaarvoice to an external candidate. It feels great to believe in what we do.
    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 People & Talent:
    Supporting and helping to grow the people at Bazaarvoice becomes easy when you realize how much we really look to grow from within. The majority of our managers are promoted into their role and so they see first hand the benefit of growth and pass that onto their own teams. We are the market leader in what we do but comparative to large software companies we are still relatively small meaning your work has real impact and you are recognized accordingly.
    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 People & Talent:
    ‘The people’ is probably the most common response to what people enjoy about Bazaarvoice. In the People and Talent team we feel we are center of that and to be honest we are pretty proud of that! The pedigree of the people here also makes you raise your game - you want to impress, you strive to give the best service and your efforts are always well received. It does not feel hierarchical and you’ll find people mixing from all different teams and regions from our offices across the world.
    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 People & Talent:
    As the ‘people’ part of the organisation you may assume that a lot of initiatives are driven by us. We certainly play our part but the beauty of the culture is that it is generated organically across the entire team. Culture takes many forms but all contribute together to make this a great place to work - examples include generous work in the community, mid and end of year regional get-togethers, regular investment in the best facilities and social calendars to keep us mixing (with often as much food as you can eat!). Performance is the key element within our culture. As a team we support the business in ensuring this is front and center of our efforts - beyond conversations with your manager we even have a software platform internally dedicated to sharing success and recognizing your colleagues.
