About Brightcove

Brightcove is a pioneering force in the world of online video.  Our cloud platform enables Brightcove customers to upload videos, process them and prepare them for delivery on multiple channels.  

Our engineering department is built on small, self-running teams, where everyone has an equal voice and decisions are made analytically.  We encourage lightweight development processes that balance craftsmanship with execution and strive to build engaging products with features that will delight our customers.

Team members double as experts in operating the systems that they build and take pride in achieving as near to 100% uptime as possible and exceptional quality-of-service.  We are continuously shipping code – several times a day. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to meeting our operational goals through robust, scalable designs, software quality, customer-facing service metrics, and devops automation.
