Over the past few months, a cascade of tech companies has pushed back their return to office plans because of COVID-19’s highly contagious Delta variant. These delays come from tech giants like Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Uber. Other companies, like State Street, have decided to leave NYC altogether. While these titans reconsider RTO plans, Bright Data has set up shop in the city as it plans to further grow its footprint in North America.
Bright Data’s Manhattan Hub
Bright Data, the global industry leader in making public websites available to all, is continuing its North American growth and expansion with the opening of its flagship US office in New York City. Omri Orgad, Bright Data’s North American Managing Director, will lead the company’s growth across North America and continue to expand the company’s customer base, which includes multiple Fortune 500 companies. Connecting with businesses in this region is key, and having a physical, growing presence and team on the ground allows Bright Data to support new customers as they set out on their data journey.
“Our expansion here will allow us to enhance our technology offering and continue to deliver value to our US customers, partnerships, and beyond. Our customers and partners in the region will benefit from a high level of customized and dedicated support, and the support and innovation from our team will allow businesses to reach their data-driven goals,” said.

Based in the heart of the city on West 32nd St, Bright Data has surpassed 300 global employees, including close to 30 new hires in its NYC office. The company continues to recruit both within the state and across the US, reflecting the growth in its business activity and customer base while also expanding its services towards mid-market and enterprise-focused activities.
Data-Driven Decision-Making Fueling Data Collection Market
Data creation is continuing to explode and has become the lifeblood of public and private organizations around the world. Although private and personal data is something we are all aware of and abide by global regulations (GDPR, CCPA), publicly available web data is growing rapidly and makes up the vast majority of data being generated in today’s environment. All brands and organizations, no matter their size, purpose, or scale, have realized that public web data has increasingly become critical to achieving their goals.
Whether it is used for responding to crises in real-time, maintaining a competitive edge, or reflecting consumer sentiments, public web data is flexible, sharp and reliable. Bright Data is empowering businesses to make vital strategic decisions through the delivery of publicly available data so they can win more and lose less. The company is laser-focused on working with brands across travel, e-commerce, finance, and many more sectors to provide data-driven insights.
Plans to Make a Social and Educational Impact
The move is also a boost for The Bright Initiative, which works with over 150 organizations, including 90+ academic institutions, 35+ NPOs, NGOs and other public bodies. The Bright Initiative is looking to expand even further and is committed to helping local charities, Tech for Good initiatives, and educational institutions. As such, it is issuing a rallying cry to potential local partners that would benefit from data collection capabilities and is calling on them to apply for the chance to be a part of the program via its website. Successful applications will join Princeton University, Human Trafficking Initiative Labs, and Mathison, the leading diversity hiring technology company, as members of the initiative, which is looking to expand in North America and around the world.
