About Our Team
We’ve learned from firsthand experience that the most effective teams are composed of highly diverse individuals from all walks of life. It’s in those pivotal moments when a situation is dire that we’ve been consistently surprised by the ingenuity and unexpected skills our teammates bring to the table. At Brightflow, we all play a key role and encourage crossover into all areas of the business that interest you. This is a set of values that lies at our very core as individuals and if you share the same desire for a warm, welcoming environment surrounded by awesome, talented people we encourage you to apply! We’re constantly learning and doing what we can to support and assist each other in growing both personally and professionally.
We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin/ethnicity, citizenship status, veteran status, disability status, marital status, medical condition, or any other legally protected status.
Managing a company’s finances is hard. A company can go from selling $4 million dollars of makeup online to $9 million dollars in a single year. It’s going great, but there is a problem: it seems like the company’s cash may be running out.
We are helping people with simple solutions that impact their understanding and enable actions. It’s the 3-30 person companies who have a great product but don’t have a whole finance team. They’re growing and want to stay focused on delighting their customers.
We help them do that by providing insights into their business in ways they can quickly understand. Join us to build the tools that make it happen.
We’ve experienced the pain of getting good financial data easily – that drove creating Brightflow. We’ve raised money to build the product and already have our first two customers that provide us with valuable insights.
We have backgrounds that include several previous VC-backed startups (founding, running, being first engineers at), private-equity and venture finance, banking, and running our own software companies. We have a mix of countries we’ve lived and worked in, languages spoken, and cultures we’ve experienced.
We’re growth-minded learners, inspired to understand our customers and pragmatically deliver solutions that solve real problems.
