Virool helps clients easily and affordably spread video content around the web. With video being so hot these days, the company is seriously growing—it already has offices in three cities worldwide—and is sure to continue to do so. If you want to join this fun-loving team (and work in its stunning offices), check out open roles in sales, finance, marketing, recruiting, product, and engineering.
You probably already know LivingSocial for its amazing daily deals on things to do in your city, getaways, and shopping. But did you also know it’s a pretty amazing place to work? The vibrant team has taken over three beautiful offices in the heart of Washington, DC, and when they’re not working hard to change the way local businesses connect with customers, they’re using deals to take advantage of their own city together. Find your spot on this adventurous team with plenty of roles open in DC, as well as some in offices around the world.
The nice thing about getting a job at a place like Dell is that everyone will actually know about the company you work for when you tell them you got a new job. But that’s only the beginning of the perks. You’ll also get to work for a company that seriously invests in the professional development of its employees, that cares about their health and work-life balance, and that always appreciates their hard work.
Hudl is bringing sports coaching into the tech age. The company’s web-based platform gives coaches and athletes a place to collaborate to dominate the competition: Coaches can upload game videos, make comments, and break down data for their athletes, while players can make highlight reels and learn new techniques—improving team performance both on and off the field. Join this sports-loving team with a job in engineering, design, project management, or recruiting.
ZeroTurnaround wants to defeat the downtime in software development, leading to better code, happy devs, and more reliable releases. While the team takes its products seriously (as do the company’s 35,000 users, which include 25% of the Fortune 100), they like to have a little fun, too, enjoying regular happy hours and catered lunches, and the occasional team trip to the likes of Greece or Mexico. Want to join the team but don’t have engineering chops? No worries: There are plenty of non-tech jobs (sales, marketing, HR, BD) available both in the company’s main Boston office and in remote offices in Estonia and Prauge.
iCracked is making repairing, selling, and protecting iDevices as easy as calling up one of the company’s mobile, on-demand iTechs who will come and fix your device wherever you are. Think of it as the AAA of phones. The team works hard, but they also make sure to take advantage of their beautiful Redwood Shores, CA location, enjoying their office dock and boat or team house in Tahoe (no, we’re not joking), or just tapping into a keg at the end of a long day and enjoying the view and company. We recommend finding your place on this team ASAP.
We probably don’t need to explain what GEICO does (we’ll leave that to the gecko). Instead we’ll tell you how a job at this tech-company-at-heart will give you the opportunity to constantly grow fast, to be creative, to work on building awesome, cutting-edge technologies, and to really make a statement in your career. Sound exciting? GEICO is hiring for tons of engineering roles, along with plenty of opportunities in other departments.
We want to work at Uber just to get to sit in the company’s sleek, high-tech San Francisco office. But don’t worry, there are other benefits to working for this on-demand car service (and other job opportunities in offices worldwide). You’ll also work for a company that’s growing fast and will give you the opportunity to do the same with your career—with a job at Uber, you’ll really have the chance to take your role and run with it, getting to experiment with a lot, being exposed to all sorts of different experiences, and making things happen without a lot of hand holding.
HERE is a business unit of Nokia that focuses on making mapping technology way, way better. Through HERE’s platform and apps, users can access beautiful and organized maps, services, and location data from any device, around the world. The company takes maps seriously, even decorating the office with antique maps and naming conference rooms after cartographers. And don’t worry: Employees aren’t stuck just looking at maps; they’re given plenty of opportunities to travel around the world, too.
