Executive Management Team
David T. Webb
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.
