Our Mission

Our mission is to help people make more meaningful connections in the easiest way possible. We live and breathe this mission every day at Brazen HQ.

Our Team

Our team is hungry, we’re creative, we work hard, and we have fun. Together we’re changing the way people engage and we know it takes nothing short of being brilliant every day to make it a reality.

We Believe

We believe that everyone deserves a job they love. Brazen was founded under this belief, and to this day our product and our culture are defined by this core value.

Life at Brazen

Not only can you take the metro to work and see the Washington Monument from your desk, but at Brazen HQ everyone has full access to awesome snacks (beef jerky!), an open environment (no cubes!) and plenty of great lunch spots (food trucks!) just outside the door. In addition to medical, dental, commuter benefits, 401k and a generous vacation policy, we offer our team plenty of fun perks as well.
