Trust and Flexibility
We trust our employees to know how to execute, and we offer them the space to do so as they manage their work and personal lives. We support employees’ individualized lifestyles and needs by offering options for onsite, remote, or hybrid work. The support is tangible: for those who choose to work remotely, we offer a stipend to make sure that their home offices are set up for comfort and productivity. We also offer opportunities to unplug from work (beyond government holidays and requested vacation days) by dedicating work time for employees to go offline.
Transparency and Communication
Transparency and engagement are critical to connection and communication within the Brightcove community. Brightcove employees are highly engaged through our anonymous employee surveys, open and transparent quarterly town hall meetings, and prioritization of employee recognition. This frequent and ongoing dialogue has led to innovations like a buddy program that pairs each new employee with a peer at Brightcove and our Around the Cove and Bright Leaders programs.

Representation and Engagement
We benefit from diverse perspectives within our community: with employees in 13 countries, we are One Team, coming together as a global community. We encourage all employees to propose and implement innovative ideas that will put into practice our shared core values. Many of these ideas have enhanced our ability to develop products that enable us to connect, communicate, and collaborate in new ways. In recognition of this, we are intentional about creating opportunities for employees to share their views and to impact and influence the Brightcove experience. We have an Employee Action Committee, which is a platform for employee engagement and feedback across all departments and levels of the organization with the aim of enhancing the workplace experience. We also have active Employee Resource Groups that provide community and support for our employees. Our ERGs offer career development, cross-functional networking, speaker series, and workshops. Recent ERG events have included panel discussions featuring women from within and outside of Brightcove (including our board members), workshops on fighting bias, and a movie screening with Brightcove customer Revry, a platform for streaming LGBTQ-first videos.
Charity and Community
Community giving and corporate citizenship is firmly embedded in our company culture. We support charitable organizations that are meaningful to our employees by investing in annual employee matching for monetary donations made to charitable organizations. Brightcove leadership recognizes our global communities and offers support in response to challenging events, participating in movements like Un Dia Sin Nosotras and International Women’s Day. We also encourage our One Team to learn about each other with efforts like monthly communications describing the significance of upcoming holidays in each region where we have employees.
