To enable every marketer to be brilliant at local SEO
Our People-First Philospphy
We believe the best way to enable our customers to be successful is to ensure that our team members are successful.
By providing the most positive work experience possible, each of us has the opportunity to be our best-self, at work and in life; we will be motivated, passionate, committed, and happy, and ready to help our customers in every way we can.
Perks & Benefits of working at BrightLocal
Every team member enters into our company bonus scheme (worth up to 20% of annual salary) related to targets.
We offer 25 days annual holiday (plus bank holidays) and you get a day off for your birthday, too.
Health and Wellbeing Support
We are firm believers in supporting our team members in body and mind. We provide a diverse range of health and wellbeing benefits including Vitality Private healthcare (includes dental cover, CBT support and free access to Headspace App), free flu jabs and eye-care vouchers, weekly in-office massages and a comprehensive bike-to-work scheme to get people moving!
We believe in continual learning and support every team member to gain the skills and experience for them to grow in their chosen career.
Each team member has an annual training budget to spend on external & online courses to develop their career and specialism.
We encourage teams to attend conferences together to develop a shared understanding of best practices.
We will help you gain experience & training to turn your day to day work into a skill. You will receive extensive training on SEO, marketing and the BrightLocal platform.
The office is informal and casual. We expect people to work hard but also to enjoy their time at work. We have a constantly-stocked drinks fridge and our kitchen cupboards overflow with snacks - of both the healthy and (very) unhealthy kind.
We love to celebrate all team members’ birthdays - enjoy cakes, drinks and cards!
And we also make a big deal of important work anniversaries with presents and gift cards.
The music is always on and we take time out every few weeks to do fun team activities. We tend to break early on a Friday afternoon to ‘prepare for the weekend’ - i.e. lots of food (snacks) and drinks (beer, wine, G&Ts and soft drinks - take your pick!)
Team Activities and Social
We believe that getting to know each other personally and trying new things makes work all the more enjoyable.
Team lunches and Friday beers are a regular thing.
Quarterly team building activities offer something for everyone (escape rooms, volleyball, sailing trips, go karting and more...).
We encourage work-life balance by enabling our employees to work abroad for up to 3 weeks a year – be it France, New Zealand, Costa Rica or Bali… the world is there to be explored and we want to help you explore it.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic our team have been working remotely to help keep them safe and avoid further spreading of the virus. This approach will continue until it is declared safe for us to return to the office, and we can safely work side by side again.
However, we will continue to support each individual’s choice to work for home until they personally feel safe and happy to return to the office.
We feel incredibly fortunate that BrightLocal has remained stable and profitable throughout the pandemic and we hit our revenue and growth goals for 2020. We have been able to support any struggling customers with long-term payment holidays and through additional training and support. We have had zero redundancies and have grown many of the teams across the business to ensure that we are in a strong position to help and support our growing customer base in 2021 and beyond.
