About us

BlackBerry is a transformed company. We’re no longer about the smartphone, but the smart in the phone… and in cars and containers, medical devices and wearables, consumer appliances, industrial machinery, and ultimately the entire Internet of Things. BlackBerry invented much of what the smartphone is today and built one of the world’s most recognized and trusted brands. We’re fiercely proud of our iconic heritage, but our focus is now on something even bigger. Today, BlackBerry provides intelligent security software and services to enterprises and governments around the world. Our company secures more than 500 million endpoints including 175 million cars on the road today. BlackBerry leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver innovative solutions in the areas of cybersecurity, safety, and data privacy solutions, and is a leader in the areas of endpoint security management, encryption, and embedded systems. BlackBerry’s vision is clear – to secure a connected future you can trust.

What defines us

BlackBerry’s global culture is a key piece of our success. It brings together our people, our business, and our organization into one vision. This is emphasized throughout our employee communications and during our global onboarding training. For example, our regional BlackBerry newsletters are sent out to employees quarterly and highlight BlackBerry events, donation campaigns, and spotlights employees around the world. This initiative has helped employees build a stronger understanding of their regional BlackBerry community.

Employees are also encouraged to join BlackBerry sports teams, groups, and social committees. Teams use our corporate intranet site and BBM communication channel to facilitate virtual gatherings. These social events encourage cross-team participation and allow employees to meet new people while developing their network.
