Who is BrightBox Software
Passionate about developing the best Earthworks Estimating Software
application since 2009.
It all began in 2008 when our cofounders James (2nd generation estimating software manager;
user experience tragic and compulsive satirist) and Martin (one time engineer and project manager;
CAD engine revhead; and cycling enthusiast) were working together on a construction estimating
software project. They talked privately and debated openly about the direction of software in the
building industry; and in the process identified many small niches where there was room for great
software to make people's lives better.
The greater good can only be ignored for so long and in 2009 they founded BrightBox Software
with the goal of bringing a great user experience and innovative design to construction industry
- Software anyone can use within 1 hour.
- Powerful features implemented simply.
- Flexible workflow that works with the customer instead of against them.
- A company that we would want to do business with.
In 2010 Pat McCarthy came on board bringing his many years of experience in the construction
industry and the business of selling construction software. He brings a long track record of
prompt and helpful software support as well as cementing our policy of having an all left handed
board of directors.
BrightBox Software is a distributed team of passionate people working out of 3 different cities
across the world. After an exhaustive research and development phase as well as extensive testing
during 2011 and early 2012; MudShark was unleashed on a mostly unsuspecting building community on
the 18th May 2012. We are continuing ongoing development and support of this product and are
excited about its upcoming changes as well as future products that can keep pushing what computers
can deliver to the construction industry.
