    I worked at BrightWave full-time (More than a year)


    Passionate, smart people. With every new round of hires, the quality of people increases exponentially. They all bring new ideas and a diverse set of experiences that make the work better. They are clear leaders in their industry as noted by several third-party media sources and by the collection of well-known, long-term clients. It’s been amazing to watch the company evolve and receive so much industry recognition. I’m proud to have been a part of it all.


    As with any rapidly growing business, it’s not a fit for those with overly conservative/cautious mindsets. Those with drive and the ability to play well with others will thrive. Those more accustomed to territorial politics from the corporate world will have a hard time making friends.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on innovation. Keep up the fun culture.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BrightWave in May 2018.


    Throughout the phone screen it seemed like the internal recruiter was trying to minimize my experience. He asked multiple times how I got in the field, but I have a Masters in an adjacent field, so I felt I answered it adequately the first time. All of this manipulation seemed ultimately to decrease my salary expectation ($50,000/annually), because near the end of the call he implied that my salary request may not be attainable. This seemed strange for a position requiring extensive design and computer programming experience, so I removed myself from the selections process.
