“Passion, innovation, authenticity, generosity, respect, teamwork and the pursuit of results are the core values of our company, and according to what we have seen and heard, the majority of Lithuanian specialists also support them”, says Ryan Robinson, Human Resource Director at Bazaarvoice. – We are glad to be opening a new office in Lithuania, where we hope to entrench our cooperation-based work culture”.
Bazaarvoice has long-term plans in Lithuania – it plans to hire 60-80 new employees in the upcoming six months. Having brought together the core team, the company will continue expanding its office in Vilnius. Dub Landgrebe, Vice President for Technical Support at Bazaarvoice, will help the first employees to join the global family, which the company having offices in the US, France, England, Northern Ireland, Germany and Australia actually is.
“We invite specialists having the respective qualification to join the team of the latest technology e-trade and digital marketing whose aim is to improve the shopping experience for different brands and vendors around the world”, says Robinson. – Bazaarvoice encourages employees to harmoniously work together in pursuit of common goals and provides opportunities for career development welcoming new challenges.

The company works with more than 5 700 websites owned by well-known brands from various sectors, including apparel, automotive, consumer electronics, retail and travel businesses. Every month, more than half a billion users view and share genuine content on Bazaarvoice network, including ratings, reviews, photos and videos.
Mantas Katinas, the CEO of the foreign investment development agency “Investuok Lietuvoje” (English: Invest Lithuania) noted that Bazaarvoice is joining innovative companies already working in Vilnius, which care about their employees the way they care about their customers. – Lithuanian talents already know what the global business culture is, so they can offer much more than just boasting about formal education. We have already seen success stories in advertising technology, game development and finance technology, thus the fact that innovators in other fields are now discovering us comes as no surprise.
“The United States of America is one of the main markets wherefrom companies engaged in the development of “business-to-business” IT products come to Lithuania. On the one hand, the complexity of the product determines not only the salary paid to specialists, but also the competences acquired at work. This is especially important at the current stage of the ecosystem’s development, because we already see how young specialists having worked in international technology companies contribute their comprehensive experience in start-ups, allowing them to grow”, says Virginijus Sinkevičius, the Minister of Economy.
Bazaarvoice established in Austin, Texas, in 2005, currently employs more than 750 people in three continents.
