Working In Boston Tech: Constant Contact

Did you know that 30% of all Google searches are employment related? That's a staggering number, but the reality is, people are always looking to better their career.

The job search process can be overwhelming and stressful. Where do I find job postings?  How do I get information about companies?  If I land an interview, how do I ensure success? The list of questions goes on and on...

Our BIZZpages are aimed at helping people find and explore great companies in the Boston tech scene.  We recently launched (see Blueport CommerceCarGurus & Vistaprint) a new series that will give you an even deeper look inside the company.  We'll explore some of the key aspects of the company, plus how to even possibly land a job there.

Today, we hear from the team at Constant Contact in Waltham, who is "revolutionizing the success formula for small organizations through affordable, easy-to-use Engagement Marketing™ tools that help create and grow customer relationships."  You can check out their BIZZpage here.

What is it like to work at your company in terms of your culture? 

People are free to be themselves – be creative, think outside the box, wear what they want, be passionate about what they do!


What’s the best way to get a job at Constant Contact?  

All of our open roles are always posted on our career site but we get about 45% of our hires from employee referrals, so if you know someone here, ask them to refer you!

What can someone expect during the interview process?

We usually start with a recruiter phone screen and then, depending on the role, an interview with the hiring manager and a few key folks on the team.  That typically means two on-site interviews.

What can people expect over the course of their career at Constant Contact? 

There is always room to learn and grow within your current role or expand into something new altogether.

Are there any favorite activities that the employees do outside of the office?

The number of employees who support our corporate giving events is something we’re particularly proud of. There are some youth and entrepreneurship-focused charities that we support on an ongoing basis  throughout the year, such as our involvement with More Than Words.  Other employee volunteer initiatives involve a one-day commitment, such as our annual participation in the TUGG Tech Gives Back volunteer day. The spirit of volunteerism is a key element of our  company culture.


What is in your fridge or on tap?

We always have free soda, flavored waters, and juice, along with some beer and wine.  And it seems like every week there’s a free lunch delivered for a team or two in the company.

Do you have any unique benefits or perks? 

We have outstanding benefits for health, wellness and vacation.  Seriously, we do! Fitness Reimbursements, Pet Insurance, Matching gift donations, and tuition reimbursement just to name a few.

Do you have names for your conference rooms?  Is there a theme or explanation behind the names? 

All of our conference rooms are named after local locations or landmarks like Castle Island and Fenway Park in our Waltham office, Estes Park and Pikes Peak in Loveland, Donkey Kong and Mario Bros in SF and Wall Street and Times Square in NYC.
