Bright – Why Work For Us?


Bright People

Asset Bank is a Digital Asset Management System first launched in 2005 by UK software development consultancy, Bright.

Bright was founded in 1999 by our directors Eric and Martin who originally met in 1991 whilst studying Computer Science at Warwick University. They went on to work together at an innovative London-based software development consultancy, Quidnunc, before starting their own company.

Their mission was to provide the high levels of professional service, technical ability and experience normally associated with much larger, industry-leading software development companies, but for a more reasonable price. Success and growth soon followed and today Bright has over 19 years’ experience developing highly usable and robust web applications for a wide range of clients all over the world.

Eric & Martin were inspired to enter the world of Digital Asset Management (DAM) after developing a bespoke image management solution for client GKN Driveline. They quickly realised that the management of digital assets was becoming an important issue for marketing and brand teams; however, at that time, the majority of DAM solutions available came with exorbitant price tags. Their founding vision for Asset Bank was to provide high-quality DAM software at a great price.

The sentiment of that vision remains true today and is still at the heart of everything we do. Inspiring and supportive software solutions that save time, are a delight to use and deliver measurable value to all of our customers.

We employ and invest in the best people so we can deliver exceptional service - from client onboarding through to aftercare. We are dedicated to providing intelligent solutions and supportive service, enabling you to achieve much more at work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bright (Brighton, England) in August 2018.

    Interview

    I emailed my interest in a role with a covering letter and CV. I received a prompt reply from the business support team inviting me for an interview that Friday. We ran out of time on that Friday so followed up with a call the following Monday. I was offered the job later that day.
