Today, we consider our move to have been very successful – the transfer of responsibilities has been smooth, we have achieved excellent results and we are now ready for further development,” Dub Landgrebe, Vice President for Client Deployment & Support Services at Bazaarvoice.
A tenth of its employees in Lithuania

In Vilnius, Bazaarvoice is creating high added-value jobs such as, technical support analysts, service operators, finance and technical deployment engineers.
