We’ve Got the Right Stuff

If you’re looking for an easy job, WordStream is definitely not the place for you. You need to be smart, flexible, creative, and quick on your feet if you’re going to cut it here. Our engineering team works with the Open Source stack, including Python, JavaScript, Linux, PostgreSQL, Knockout.js, Git, and more. And as a Google Premier Partner, we get to work with the latest Google APIs all day long. We spend our time solving hard technical challenges - distributed architecture, large datasets (multiple TBs of data), growing customer base, multiple vendor APIs, etc. You know you want a part of that!

Something’s Brewing.

At WordStream, we only accept the best. The best employees, the best software… and even the best beer. And what better way to ensure quality than to do it ourselves? Our software engineers not only code some sweet Python, they also brew some mean growlers. Stop by our Back Bay office and try some home-brewed beer straight from the kegerator. With a rotating selection, you’ll find something to compliment the office snacks quite nicely, we’re sure.

WordStream After Hours

Elbow room and space to grow are great, but there’s a down side to tremendous growth: we miss each other! Now that we’re spread across 3 floors of a modern Back Bay high-rise, mingling with our friends and colleagues isn’t as easy. What’s a growing, fun, and social company to do? After-hours outings, with drinks and apps on WordStream, of course! Have a few laughs with someone from another floor or chat up one of the execs or new hires. And with our central Back Bay location, we never have to go to the same place twice!

All Work and No Play? No Way.

We’re a pretty laid-back bunch, but all bets are off when it comes to office competition. We take our office sports pretty seriously! Whether it’s a dart match, a foosball game, or a heated ping pong battle, professional titles are ignored, and WordStream becomes a dog-eat-dog world. And it’s not just cutthroat office-letics that get us into a competing state of mind. We’ve never met a sports bracket we could leave blank, our sales team displays their poker faces at our card nights, and our gamers duke it out online and on boards.

Bringing Down the House with Team Building.

Who thought having a cotton candy machine on the 13th floor of the office would be a bad idea? We didn’t, but we probably won’t do it again… Whoops! Here’s a little non-PPC advice for you: make your cotton candy outside! Most of our other in-office events have been muuuuch neater. Even pumpkin carving, tree trimming, and our ice cream social combined didn’t compare to that epically messy Bring-Your-Kid-To-Work/Fenway-Opening-Day extravaganza! Every month our Fun Force brings us something new. Maybe we’ll try to top the cotton candy mayhem with a dunk tank on the 14th floor or pony rides on the 15th. Hey, Fun Force, where’s the suggestion box?

Fight for Your Right to Party.

Partying with the penguins, cruising and boozing, or a three-hour tour to a deserted island, we celebrate in style. We’ve had some pretty memorable celebrations to observe the winter holidays and summer sunshine. Some are Plus One events, some are employees only, but all of them are fabulous.

When the Bosses are Away…

Don’t get us wrong, our Exec Team is pretty cool. But we still can’t help but celebrate when they’re all off site! Yes, it’s a little juvenile, but when the cats are away, the mice will play. Every quarter when the executive team has their planning meeting to plot world domination, we max out the company credit card on pizza. Just FYI, we’ve learned that it takes more than 30 pizzas to feed our hungry bellies. That’s a lotta dough... and cheese, and sauce, and pepperoni, and artichokes, and…

Transparency Ain’t Just a River in Egypt.

Transparency isn’t just important in the windows when checking out our awesome view. It’s also fundamental to the way we run the company. Every month, we have a company meeting where all topics are openly discussed. From sales to hiring to product development to churn and everything in between, nothing is off limits. Just don’t get there late or you’ll miss the free breakfast!

Get Yer @ss Moving.

While the cutthroat office-letics may make even the finest mathlete break a sweat, we also offer up some legit physical outlets. Every year, we max out our team for the Corporate Challenge 5K and field one hell of a softball team. And unless you’re that unfortunate fielder who loses a fly ball in the sun and catches it in the face, the experience of sweating with your coworkers is a great way to bond! Not into organized athletics? No problem, since we’re on the 13-15th floors, we’ll happily time you as you race up and down the stairs to make it to your next meeting on time.

BBJ’s #5 Best Place to Work in Massachusetts!

Google Premier Partner

Locally and Nationally recognized for growth, culture, and technology

We think WordStream is a pretty great place, but we might be just a little biased. Luckily, we’ve earned the praises of some pretty cool organizations that support our opinion!

Boston Business Journal ranked WordStream as the #5 place to work in Massachusetts among other companies of its size. We are proud to be recognized for the culture and atmosphere we’ve created here at 177 Huntington.

But that’s certainly not all! In early 2015, WordStream was recognized as a Google Premier Partner, meeting Google’s highest standards for providing small businesses with the most effective AdWords advertising solutions.

WordStream is also the proud recipient of multiple awards from MITX and we’ve also been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the Fastest Growing Private Companies.
