Our History


The software we were using didn’t provide us with the solutions we needed.We looked throughout the Applicant Tracking System marketplace and we were still left without the necessary tools we required.

We wanted speed, simplicity, and functionality. We saw the opportunity to create new tools that would help us optimally manage the business, and a chance to become pioneers in recruiting, helping our clients find candidates easier and more efficiently.We built our own ATS tools that resulted in better-informed business decisions for us and our clients. This was the start of what would become BrightMove. We began to grow and hired some bright minded people who loved to work and live on the beautiful northeastern coast of Florida. We wanted to keep our development local, made right here in Florida, for recruiters by recruiters.Everyone at BrightMove works hard to fulfill a promise we make to you each and every day.

Our Promise is to stay ahead of industry advancement and lead innovation in applicant tracking systems.We aim to give you the best experience possible utilizing BrightMove’s platform.

Founder and CEO Of BrightMove, Inc.

David Webb is Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of BrightMove, Inc. – pioneers of ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems) – and now one of the fastest growing global providers of hiring and recruiting software within the HR Technology industry.

Prior to completing a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of North Florida in Computer Science, David’s first job turned out to be at one of the very first digital job boards at the dawn of the Internet.

While working in the evolving digital economy, David and his colleagues discovered a market opportunity in recruiting and staffing highly specialized information technology professionals for large scale projects. They also decided to build their own ATS solution with the granular-reporting and data-analytic features that would result in better- informed business decisions – for themselves and their clients. Thus, licensing the ATS software, which they called BrightMove, became a business of the same name in 2005.

David’s expertise in Big Data led him to initiate the team and co-author the Spring-Data- Cassandra module, enabling the use of the Spring (spring.io) framework with Cassandra (a Big Data database) and new capabilities to manage high velocity, high volume and variable data flows.

BrightMove is headquartered in St. Augustine Beach, Florida - not far from where David grew up, decided to raise his family, continues to surf, volunteer with the America Red Cross Volunteer Lifesaving Corps and continue his lifelong passion for developing innovative technologies for the dynamic human resource industry.
