“Working on solving big problems” is the tag-line you see when you will visit cogilent corporate site (www.cogilent.com). In the nascency of Information Technology industry, at the times of formation of cogilent solutions, back in year 2002 – we had similar dreams.
Cogilent solutions has its pride in putting up one of the very early Internet business in Pakistan. In 2002, the team had vision and launched BrightSpyre.com, one of the very early software as a service platform- helping companies to hire talent through Internet.
With the passage of time, the team found out that they are more helpful for people looking for job opportunities. This is evident from its 1.3 million registered members base – and thousands of candidates found jobs through brightspyre. This is evident that one of the leading call center hired more than 1,000 staff in Karachi by using brightspyre recruitment platform.
The journey has led the company craft a clear vision “working on solving big problems” and one of the main problem the company is working on – solving un-employment problem. One in every three person in Pakistan is between the age of 20 to 40 – youth needs to have work opportunities. Scale this problems to developing countries in Asia and Africa. More than 1.2 billion people are actively looking for work.
