WordPress migration to Jamstack

6x faster than WordPress with Gatsby.js and Sanity

We migrated Brightway's site from WordPress to Jamstack and saw an astonishing increase in Google Lighthouse's performance score. We also provided guidance and help regarding UI/UX when working with Brightway's designers to create a refreshed style for the brand.

The site is multilingual and features a fully customizable page structure with modular components and content for each locale. The content is managed with Sanity - an excellent Headless CMS for Brightway's use case.


Increase in performance

We achieved an incredible 6 times better performance on Google's audits when we migrated Brightway's website from a bloated WordPress installation to Gatsby.js and Netlify.


Multilingual & modular content

We crafted a customized setup for a multilingual site with Sanity.io. Ideally, each locale had to be fully customizable and not just translatable. This was achieved by building a custom, 100% modular setup with Sanity's Studio editor where content managers can manage each locale separate from each other.


(applicant tracking system) integration

Vincere ATS was integrated with the Gatsby.js front-end and Netlify serverless functions to fetch new jobs and post them on the site when added in the ATS. 


Content operations

Before migrating to Jamstack, Brightway's site was running on a poorly configured WordPress site. Each time content was updated, there was a risk something was to break. With Jamstack the site is more reliable than before and content managers can update the site without the fear of breaking it.
