TORONTO —

Bridgit, a Toronto/Waterloo-based workforce intelligence technology company that’s focused on the construction industry, is proud to announce its inclusion in the Great Place to Work® 2021 list of Best Workplaces Managed by Women, which has been compiled based on the feedback from the employees of hundreds of organizations.

Bridgit’s inclusion on the list comes as little surprise to those in the industry, as Bridgit’s founders Mallorie Brodie and Lauren Lake have worked hard to foster a close-knit, inclusive, and people-first working environment. The outcome of this is clear: In the past year, Bridgit has more than doubled its employee count, seen 140% increase in revenue, closed their $24M series B round, launched 36 new features and 16 integrations, and formed partnerships with ConTech giants Procore and Autodesk—which is made all the more impressive by the fact that they’ve done it in two male-dominated industries.   

Bridgit is hiring for at least fifteen new roles across all departments, with additional jobs being posted weekly. A Great Place to Work- Certified™ company, Bridgit offers competitive compensation and equity, a remote-first work environment, unlimited PTO, four-hour Fridays, and free health insurance for employees and their families. 

“We strive to create an environment that helps our people thrive, which means great benefits, pay and an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Lauren Lake, Co-founder and COO at Bridgit. “We want our team members to feel like they can bring their best selves to work; so we’re constantly striving to find every way to make that possible. We consider a great working experience to be one of our key competitive advantages.”

Bridgit’s flagship product, Bridgit Bench, is the only workforce management platform designed specifically for general contractors, allowing them to put the right people on the right jobs, and at the right time—eliminating cost overruns caused by improper workforce planning. Bridgit Bench also intelligently forecasts hiring needs, allowing GCs to confidently identify and bid on jobs where they’ll be most successful.
