Guided by our vision
We build user-first products that securely connect people around the globe to financial services. We believe in a future where payments are simple, secure, and accessible for everyone — this is the Brightwell vision and our driving force behind everything we do. And that belief isn’t just reflected in the work we do — it’s in the people we hire and the culture we build together. We value passion, innovation, and thoughtfulness, knowing that the best way to serve our users is through diversity of thought and origin. This spirit of serving our users and doing good is core to who we are and how we operate every single day, giving more meaning to the work we do than any metric possibly could.
Serving communities at home and abroad
We make service a part of our ethos, providing donations for global disaster relief, helping local causes in our community, as well as weaving that philanthropic spirit into our daily lives. Each Wednesday, employees are encouraged to wear pink, and when they do, we donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We also set aside time for employees to spend one workday each quarter volunteering their time to a cause they care about, with opportunities everywhere from the Humane Society to the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta. It all adds up, contributing to our culture of supporting people, both locally and globally.
Working for the future
Brightwell launched an internship program to invest in the next generation of innovative payment thinkers. Each summer, we offer a small cohort of rising college juniors and seniors the opportunity to help us solve real-world business challenges. Interns work within their department of interest, anything from marketing to product development to finance. Working with their team leader, each intern delivers a presentation of their work at the end of their term. Executives from within the company also work directly with the students, hosting workshops on everything from what a 401k is to how to be a better public speaker. Our program opens in early spring, so check back then to apply!
Making time for connection
When you join Brightwell you become part of a vibrant and passionate team that values all perspectives and enjoys learning and spending time together. Great culture doesn’t just come from formal initiatives or mission statements — it’s also fostered organically. That’s why we leave room for connective moments in everyday life at Brightwell in the form of smaller, lighthearted events like happy hours, baseball games, holiday parties, weekend 5K runs, and Hawaiian shirt day, just to name a few. We believe that time spent together can make all the difference when you're solving hard problems. One event we look forward to each year is the Brightwell Olympics, a friendly, day-long competition in which employees compete in everything from holding the longest plank to speed-finishing fifth grade math homework.
Love what you do
Brightwell is made up of passionate people who see an opportunity to do good in the world, and feel called upon to step up to the plate to do it. We chose Brightwell because of the immediate and direct impact we can have on those who need our advocacy.
