This month we’re celebrating a huge milestone for BrightLocal: 10 years of making local marketing simple! So please allow us a little time to take stock of the last decade and cast an eye over how far we’ve come.

For a start: look how much the UK team has grown over the years!

We’re particularly proud of our brand new Brighton office, built to house the growing family of BrightLocal team members. Here are some ‘before and after’ shots of our swanky new digs!

The UK might be the hub of our operations, but we take pride in being a global company, providing excellent opportunities in multiple countries.

10 Years of Building Accurate Citations

Our Citations Team in the Philippines work tirelessly to make your citations as accurate and valuable as possible. Here they are celebrating our 10th anniversary in the glorious sunshine.

 

For the record, the UK team is not jealous of the weather. (Harumph!)

The Citations Team has seen incredible growth over the last decade, from a single man initially to 94 today (and counting)!

That man is Renier Alfeche, Head of Submissions, and he’s still with us today! He says:

I’ve worked at BrightLocal since 2010, it’s the best thing that’s happened in my career. I was afforded the opportunity to work in a company that not just looks after its customers, but above all it looks after its employees. My role at BrightLocal gave me an opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds, with different talents – we come together to work for the common good of our customers. Most of all, I was given a chance to work with a boss who mentored me in honing my skills and a boss who treated his employees as family. Long live BrightLocal!

10 Years of Building Powerful Tools

From the Philippines, we jet all the way over to Kyiv, Ukraine, where the magic happens. (Hey, it looks like magic to me!)

Kyiv-Team

Here, our team of talented and dedicated engineers write and tweak the 1,000,000+ lines of code that make up our powerful toolset, and put the customer at the heart of everything they do while they’re at it.

10 Years of Making Local Marketing Simple

Saccharine as it maybe, we truly couldn’t have done it without our customers, whose incredible feedback allows us to do better and be better, year after year.

Fancy getting us a birthday present? Well, we wouldn’t say no to you recommending our 14 day free trial to a friend! 😉
