Helping large companies innovate isn’t easy, but it is vital. Vital to creating new jobs. Vital to igniting growth. Vital to ensuring a safe, healthy and prosperous future of billions around the globe.

However, innovation at large companies is a mess. Employees have lots of ideas on how to improve a business, but with no formal process, their suggestions go unheard and they give up trying to make a difference. Corporate innovation labs are expected to support countless different activities to promote innovation but lack the right tools for the job. Executives are seeing disruption everywhere they look and investing millions, but still have no idea where their “next big thing” will come from, or if it will come at all.

At Brightidea, we’ve built a platform that’s solving those problems. We’ve been helping corporate R&D teams be more efficient with the 1.5 Trillion dollars invested annually.

Our Team

Brightidea’s Engineering team is a diverse group of humble people that love to work together and are constantly trying new things. The team fosters learning and experimenting in an open, collaborative environment. We continuously deliver and believe in the right tool for the job. The workload is a healthy balance of product and engineering driven projects that are usually brainstormed after a rowdy game of foosball or a mouthwatering meal together. We value teamwork and are constantly engaged with our peers within the company to learn and grow personally as well as professionally.

Brightidea will never discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation or age, marital, or disability status.

We believe that everyone has the ability to make a difference and that a diverse team generates more innovation and bigger ideas. Just as our product invites organizations to crowd source innovation across their workforce, Brightidea is inclusive and does not discriminate. We accept everybody.
