ATLANTA, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Brightwell, Inc., a FinTech company that helps global workers get paid as well as send and spend money safely and easily worldwide, today announced it has been recognized by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as one of the city's 2019 top places to work. Published annually, the list of top workplaces is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey and measures several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution, and connection.
The award comes after Brightwell's ten year transformation from a financial service provider to an innovative FinTech company, delivering the platform of choice for global money transfer across the maritime industry and 190 countries worldwide. Since 2016, Brightwell has grown by 300 percent and is currently facilitating over two million transactions each month. In 2018 alone, Brightwell facilitated over $1.5 billion in payroll. Brightwell has created a fun and fulfilling environment that includes company social events, professional development, flexible work hours, monthly lunches, and other top-tier benefits, as well as the opportunity to travel the world to meet with end users.
"We've intentionally laid the foundation for a culture that is fast-paced, entrepreneurial and rooted in passion," said Audrey Hall, SVP of Product for Brightwell. "We place importance on a wide range of experiences and perspectives and believe magic happens when our employees feel valued. This award demonstrates that Brightwell is a place where employees are safe expressing their opinions and, at the individual level, there's a strong sense of consciousness and commitment to propelling our business forward. It's exciting to see our mission of building a company where people can work together to make a difference in the world come to fruition."
With its intense focus on end users and how the company can best serve them, Brightwell encourages employees to experience an implementation, typically overseas. This is something that has been described as "life changing" and "eye-opening," and vastly alters the way employees view their work.
"Brightwell instills purpose in our day so that we take extra pride in the work we do," added Hall. "This type of personal fulfillment and being part of a big, diverse family that's dedicated to helping others is something you can't find at just any tech startup. We're thrilled that we've built that kind of company and are being recognized for it."
