There is one problem with the advancing world of technology. It seems as though the technological experts are very familiar with things such as nodes, and then, on the other hand, there are people who have no idea what a node is. In the end, there is a major miscommunication. Well, BrightWork, a TechStars Chicago company, has an answer for this problem. Founded by former Twilio engineer Josh Carter and Nike developer Phil Taylor, the company has generated $200,000 so far to make it easier to deploy back-end technology instantly.
“This was something both Phil, and I struggled with in our own projects. We had been building applications for companies like Disney, Taco Bell, and Pabst Blue Ribbon. The issue was having to build the backend and microservices for every one of those solutions which ate away at our bottom line,” Carter stated. “Phil had a very similar problem where he was having issues finding the best way to build a solution or infrastructure for a client that was much more agile. This problem resonated with both of us, so we felt this was the right time to build Brightwork.”
Consider Brightwork as a series of scripts very closely related to the old Cpanel days. When you need a specific API or service, you just click on a button and everything is done for you. You then manage it from your front end and design your interface around the little chunks you have developed. Albeit it is very geeky, as some would say, it is also useful. Brightwork already has around three hundred people on its waitlist, and it has just launched.
“The product has been in the hands of a small select group of people who have been providing great feedback, but we knew we had to get this out to a broader audience if we were going to grow,” Carter added.
