A Handy Guide To Working At Bright Bright Great

Deathly Hallows

Bright Bright Great is an amazing place to work, period. We are always learning and pushing each other to grow personally and as a collective team.

Think you’d make a good addition? Use this post as a guide to help you understand what it takes to be a part and if you are a fit.

We are damn good at what we do.

You can tell by our work that we “get it.” We are a digitally and UX-driven brand development company helping clients create stunning experiences that solve goals.

We build from the ground up and see projects through from start through finish. We continue on helping our clients after a launch with technology, content creation, strategy & social media marketing.

You can learn about the services we offer clients on our Studio page. There’s quite a few.

We are always curious.

This is our entire team’s passion and lifestyle. We look for people to join our team who can inspire us and our community.

We look for people who are naturally curious. You should be active on social media and up on the newest technology and trends. Your personal brand is confident, creative and has some grit. People believe in you.

Our skills are undeniable. Yours should be as well.

Bright Bright Great is a small team with no weak links. Every single day, we rely on each other to stay focused. During a normal day, we design, develop, shoot photography, create presentations, write strategy, post social media and a million other things. We run smoothly by each of us being able to adapt quickly and through intelligent processes.

We look for the best designers/photographers/strategists out there. We call those who fit best with BBG a “1+1.” You happen to be incredibly gifted in the role you are applying for as well as one additional creative skill IE photography, illustration, copywriting, social media, etc.

We’re small. We win and lose as a team.

You’d join us to help build something bigger. We win as a team. We also lose as a team. You’ll feel both.

We believe that performance-based incentives, like bonuses and extra time off, help to foster a feeling of community and ownership. We set annual goals and we fuel each other to achieve them.

How do I engage with you? BBG Apprenticeship & Full-Time positions

Most everyone who works at BBG engages with us through a 6-month apprenticeship position. That gives us the opportunity to fully vet your skills and for you to prove to us that you should be a part of our team.

Updates on open opportunities will also be posted on BBG’s Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn.
