2. We are the Few and the Proud
Our application process is not for the faint of heart, but don't let that scare you. We evaluate each qualified applicant in several different areas relevant to the position, including but not limited to: application of knowledge in their field, problem-solving abilities, creativity, leadership potential, interpersonal skills, and the overall belief in what we are trying to do as a company.
We want to be certain everyone who joins our team is not only the best in what they do, but also believes in our goal and is dedicated to growing with us. This isn't a one-way assessment process; we want to make sure that applicants want to be here, are fully informed of expectations, and will thrive in our environment.
This process has helped us assemble a diverse and motivated team with a variety of backgrounds who are in this for more than just a paycheck – we are united to help people find jobs!

3. What is a TPS Report? Who cares... We keep things simple!
To us, communication and transparency are must-haves in any environment. As a fast-paced company, we can't afford to be bogged down with useless procedures. Employees work with one direct team lead, not eight different ones!
Bright's management team makes a point to ensure that there are no unanswered questions and keeps everyone in the loop about upcoming company plans and how each person contributes to our overall success. With frequent and open feedback between teams, everyone has a solid grasp on where they succeed and where they could use some improvement.
There are many ways to solve a problem, which is why we fully rely on our team's expertise and creativity to find the best solutions. We all know what our goals are and when they need to be accomplished. How we go about tackling them is up to us!
5. We Believe in What We Do
We have a product that helps people find jobs by making it easy for recruiters, hiring managers, and small business owners to find the most Active, Interested, and Qualified candidates. Everyone on our team truly believes in what we are doing and the difference we will make. We ensure that each person we hire is just as excited and passionate as we are about making hiring better!
6. You'll Get the Tools You Need to Succeed
When it comes to different software, hardware, and other resources a person needs, there is no “one-size fits all.” We work with each new employee, as soon as they accept our job offer, to make sure they have the right tools to succeed at Bright. Whether it's a new MacBook, Windows desktop, or an obscure custom-built Linux machine, we'll make it happen so you can be on top of your game from day one!
7. We Prosper as a Team
We are always looking for new ways to have fun bonding as a team – ways that don't involve trust-falls. Whether we're chowing down on the daily family-style lunches, blasting the office goal horn to celebrate a new sale, heading out for an impromptu happy hour after work, or go-karting at a company event, we keep things fun for our team of top-notch job connection wizards. Our philosophy is that if you're passionate about what you do, and have fun while you are doing it, everyone will benefit!
8. Open to Creativity
We're creating something that no one else in the job search and recruiting space has done before. Creativity, innovation, and out-of-the-box thinking are qualities we value. No matter if you are an intern, a marketing analyst, or an engineer – you will always be building something new rather than maintaining something that already exists. Our team is passionate about what they do and frequently think up new (and crazy) ideas to make our product even better. Not every idea can make it onto the production schedule, but we encourage our employees to work on any Bright side-projects they like with 20% of their time. Some of the best ideas have come from the most unlikely sources!
9. Location, Location, Location
Bright's office is located in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood, two blocks from AT&T Park, home of the Giants. With great weather year 'round, it isn't unusual for our employees to take impromptu walks down to the bay or nearby park, or grab coffee at one of the many local eateries.
Plan on commuting? Not only are we conveniently located a block away from CalTrain, as well as the N, K/T, and several other Muni routes, we can also help with travel expenses. Many of our employees also take advantage of the complimentary valet service in the building's parking garage.
10. We Make Work Comfortable for You
Dreary office cubicles aren't exactly our thing. That's why we spare no expense when it comes to keeping our team comfortable. Our open workspace environment promotes collaboration between all of the teams and is complemented by wall-to-wall windows – ample sunlight and fantastic bay view included!
Whether you prefer to sit or stand, we provide top of the line ergonomic chairs and can even custom tailor a desk to fit your height. And of course, if you need a break between coding sessions, grab a cup of coffee or tea from our Keurig brewing system, put your feet up in a massage chair, or start a Guitar Hero jam session on our Xbox. Whatever you need to make you more productive and comfortable, we can provide!
