An Insider's view of Brigit

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is unique. However, it is not simply the walls of the office that make it so. Every Brigiteer helps construct a fantastic workplace. Whether it be a co-founder taking time to teach us how to make an espresso, or collaborating across teams to add that special touch to our app. We see each other not just as coworkers, but as a family.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

You can write anywhere in the office. Walls, desks, windows…..really wherever you come up with an idea, there's always a marker close by to jot your best ideas down. It’s a very collaborative group and we work best when we can express ourselves visually.

Shruti
