Working at WGBH

When you visit our headquarters, you'll see our mission written around the outside of our building. It’s an integral part of what we do and how we live. And, as an employee, you’ll come in each day knowing that you’re having a positive influence in the world.

We offer many opportunities for you to learn about the broad spectrum of work produced at WGBH and to participate in cohort groups to share expertise. We stay connected through a daily e-news bulletin and casual monthly get-togethers.

But we also know that people’s lives don’t start and end here at work. That’s why we offer ample vacation time, and wellbeing benefits that help you achieve strong work/life balance, stay well, save money and reduce stress. You can be part of the team outside of work too, with WGBH-sponsored softball, volleyball, and kickball, as well as an annual 5K run that supports public media.

WGBH is one of many businesses located in Boston Landing one of Boston’s fastest-growing neighborhoods. WGBH employees have easy access to public transportation, shuttle service, restaurants, and coffeehouses, and even a bowling alley. While most WGBH employees work out of our headquarters, we also have offices in Springfield, Massachusetts (WGBY), Woods Hole, Massachusetts (WCAI), and Burbank, California.
