Brightway Careers

Website development for a staffing agency

We developed a modern website for Brightway to help them manage multiple locales and to optimize their front-end performance.

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.

Contributions

  • Rebuilt Brightway's dated WordPress site with a new modernized tech stack.

  • Application Tracking System (ATS) integration for applicant tracking processes.

  • Device testing and quality assurance

  • Localized content management for multiple business regions and locales. 

  • Implemented a new brand design

Highlights

Simplified content management

Before our work, 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 our new website architecture the site is more reliable than before and content managers can update the site without the fear of breaking it.

ATS (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 to the ATS.

6 x performance increase

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

    Cooperation

    I'm very happy with how our new company site turned out. The site's performance is absolutely impressive, and we've been able to manage our regional content more efficiently with our new Headless CMS. Thank you, team Ikius.

    How we enabled increased performance and simplified content management

    We created simplified content management and
    optimized page speed for multiple regions by using a modern Headless CMS and front-end framework. In addition to making content management easier we optimized the site for 6x performance.

    Localized content

    After modeling the content on Sanity CMS, the second step was to add new content, such as translations and image assets. We worked with Brightway's designer and content manager to add this content to the site.

    Model content in Sanity

    The first step was to model content in Sanity.io Headless CMS based on the previous site structure. We did this by going through all the pages and recreating them as modular content models in Sanity.

    This includes customized content models for multi-regional and localized content and composable page structure per locale.

    Front-end development

    After modeling and populating content on Sanity, we began working on the front-end software code with Gatsby.js
