Venture-backed technology company partners with Bridge to keep a globally distributed workforce feeling local

High-growth Technology Company

Challenge

The CEO of a high-growth technology company in San Francisco is a firm believer that great talent can come from any corner of the globe, and that geography is no reason to miss out on an amazing hire. Accordingly, they built a consciously “remote-friendly” company culture - with over 70% of employees happily based outside the CA headquarters as far as Brazil and Poland. 

Along with this innovative approach to hiring, however, they soon realized existing immigration processes were failing to keep up with her rapidly scaling and global workforce - both operationally and strategically. If a current employee wanted to transfer to the US from a remote position abroad, for example, it could take months to get that visa approved, which made project forecasting nearly impossible.

Additionally, since many of the company's remote employees had never worked in the US before - visa options for these folks were limited, and significantly more complex - particularly if the goal was to bring them onboard fast.

This CEO saw an opportunity to level up her immigration function with a legal team well-versed in the nuances of a remote workforce, empowered by the speed and transparency of Bridge’s technology.

Granted international employees real-time, autonomous access to their own case status, and the ability to provide key data directly to the Bridge legal team
Empowered HR team to procure digital visa assessments for candidates via the Bridge platform

"An agile, flexible workforce requires an equally agile and flexible immigration provider. Working with Bridge, the real-time visibility across time zones provided by the platform, and the reliable expertise from the legal team when we needed, has been instrumental in streamlining our mobility needs."
-CEO
