brightwheel

We’re on a mission to transform early education
for every educator, parent, and child.

About brightwheel

Founded in 2015, brightwheel’s mission is to transform early education for every educator, parent, and child — by giving teachers meaningfully more time with students each day, engaging parents in the development of their kids, and supporting the small businesses that make up the backbone of the $100 billion early education market.

Our core values

We strive to embody our values every day, cultivating a team environment that’s collaborative, fun, and impact-driven.

  • Ownership: We take pride and initiative in our work
  • Empathy: We deeply understand our customers and each other
  • Learning: We are committed to always getting better
  • Results: We set a high bar and achieve the extraordinary

The employee experience

We are a fast-growing team that is passionate about making an impact on the educators and families we serve. We love to tackle big problems, continuously learn, and celebrate wins. We’re here to do our best work – and have an awesome time doing it. And we’re looking for more talented and committed team members to build with us!

I love working with educators to adopt our app. They’re so appreciative that brightwheel connects them with families and helps their businesses thrive.

As a new working mother, I was provided incredible flexibility, benefits, and encouragement towards this new personal milestone. Brightwheel placed a whole new meaning into “working parent” for my family and me.

I joined brightwheel 4 years ago, and it’s been awesome to see the team and our impact grow! I’m also proud to grow my own career alongside brightwheel - first as a frontend engineer, and now as a manager.

It’s exciting to help build something that makes an ECE director or teacher’s job easier while also helping families stay connected to their little ones.

Why diversity, equity, and inclusion matter to us

We believe that everyone — from our employees to the students, teachers, and administrators we serve — should be given the opportunity to learn and thrive, whatever their background may be. We celebrate diversity in all forms because it allows our team and the communities we serve to reach their full potential and do their best work.

We’re intentionally listening to our employees and creating a culture that is supportive and open to different perspectives. We have employee-led initiatives like an anti-racist book club and an employee resource group that plans and leads activities to expand brightwheelers’ understanding of social inequality and allyship.

Our Offices

Brightwheel is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in Denver and Austin. We also have awesome employees who work remotely across the US.
