Working at WGBH

When you visit our LEED-certified headquarters in Boston's Brighton neighborhood, you'll see our mission written around the outside of the building. It’s an integral part of what we do and how we live. And as an employee, you’ll feel it too.

We provide regular opportunities to learn about foundation-wide programs and participate in cohort groups to share expertise. We stay connected via our daily newsletter and casual monthly get-togethers (with free food!).

We also offer benefits that help you stay well, achieve strong work/life balance, save money and reduce stress. You can be part of the team outside of work, too, with WGBH-sponsored softball, volleyball, kickball, and 5K runs that support causes we care about.

Our Brighton Landing location is in Boston’s fastest growing neighborhood. WGBH employees have easy access to the commuter rail, new restaurants and coffeehouses, and new buildings and neighbors are going in all the time. While most employees work out of our Brighton facilities, we also have offices in Springfield, Massachusetts (WGBY), Woods Hole, Massachusetts (WCAI), and Burbank, California.
