Brightcove Moving to Boston, Looks to Hire
Cambridge, MA-based Brightcove, the digital media and video hosting firm, said today it is planning to move from One Cambridge Center to Atlantic Wharf on the Boston waterfront in April 2012. The company, which was founded in 2004, has signed a 10-year lease for an 82,000-square-foot office space at 290 Congress Street. Brightcove has 280 employees and plans to hire 120 more to fill out the new space, according to a report in the Boston Globe. The firm, perhaps best known for its video-hosting Web platform, has focused more on mobile video in the past year or two. Brightcove joins Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Heartland Robotics, and other companies that recently have moved, or are in the process of moving, from Cambridge to Boston.
