About Us:

At Brightloom, we are working to create meaningful relationships between people and the brands they love. Our Customer Growth Platform (CGP) offers a first-of-its-kind SaaS approach to automated AI-driven, predictive personalization. Previously, these types of capabilities were exclusive to larger brands who have entire teams of people focused on marketing and customer analytics. The CGP is built upon proprietary models that show and tell brands what to do next, so they don’t have to hire teams to build models, guess at rules, run experiments, and then interpret the results. The CGP models do this work, so the marketer doesn’t have to. We’re obsessed with taking something that’s really hard, complicated, and expensive and turning it into a service that’s simple and affordable for all consumer brands, not just industry leaders.

What We Offer:

  • Salary of $125,000

  • Fun, creative and collaborative remote work environment 

  • Wellness Wednesday- weekly afternoon of flex time to be offline/meeting free

  • Health, Dental & Vision Insurance Coverage

  • Life Insurance, Short-Term Disability, Long-Term Disability

  • Flexible Spending Account & Health Savings Account

  • Unlimited PTO

Building a diverse and inclusive workplace is a core tenet of our culture. Brightloom is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability and protected veterans status or any other characteristic protected by law.
