Bridgevine is building the future of Home Services -- come to Atlanta, GA and join us. This is a very rare opportunity to build a meaningful consumer product from inception.

Have you ever found yourself on your wireless carrier’s “charge all you can” plan?

Ever wondered why your car depreciates and your driving record improves, but your insurance rates never change?

We have, and we’re doing something about it. Come build a big data app with us that you’d be proud for your family, friends, and millions of neighbors to use -- and save them tens of millions of dollars in the process! This is a rare opportunity to kick-off an industry-leading new product delivering real benefits to millions of US consumers.
