We’re not exactly counting, but it’s only the second week of the new year, and we’ve already won two awards. That’s right, Built In Boston put together a list of the 50 best small companies to work for in Boston. We’re proud to be second on that list! And the excitement doesn’t stop there. We’re number 14 on Built In’s list of 100 overall best places to work in Boston 2019.  (Ok, I guess we are counting – but wouldn’t you?)

Who We Are and What We Do

video cameraAt 3Play Media, our goal is to make accessible video easy. We provide closed captioning, transcription, translation, and audio description to more than 2,500 customers in higher education, media & entertainment, enterprise, and government. We strive to simplify the process of making videos accessible and do so through features such as flexible APIs, video platform integrations, and a user-friendly account system. Our process relies on a combination of humans and technology in order to provide cost-effective and high-quality results.


Why We Are Awesome

We’re awesome for a number of reasons! The mission behind our product – to make video content accessible – is at the heart of everything we do as a company. The passion for creating a more accessible web makes the work exciting and gratifying and propels the team to constantly strive for more.

Working for a purpose

It’s important to us at 3Play to keep accessibility top of mind. Recently we got together one afternoon and spent our lunchtime doing hands-on activities to remind us why we do what we do. We tried on vision simulation goggles to learn more about various degrees of vision loss, learned some new words in American Sign Language, and shared stories of some of the incredible people we have interviewed through our Faces Behind the Screen storytelling project.

Teamwork makes the dream work

At 3Play Media, we really value collaboration and innovation. We are a dynamic start-up company, where everyone brings something unique and valuable to the table. The environment affords individuals opportunities to learn, develop, and grow.


Location, location, location

The 3Play office is located in a fun and up-and-coming area of Boston’s Seaport (and right next door to Flour Bakery!) Fort Point has a lot to offer. There are plenty of nearby coffee shops to get a caffeine boost or pastry, lots of options for going out to lunch or grabbing a drink with colleagues after work. In the warmer months, it’s perfect to take a lunchtime walk around the harbor or just enjoy people (and dog) watching. Fort Point also lends itself nicely to our company social outings, with a new King’s bowling nearby, and new spots are constantly popping up to discover during our annual scavenger hunt around the Seaport.
"I love working at 3Play Media because of the people, the flexibility, and the interesting work I do every day. It’s very rewarding to know that each day I will work with intelligent and capable coworkers to solve challenging problems."
