Raincity Studios acquires Bryght

Two of Vancouver’s best known web service companies have formally joined forces with Raincity Studios buying Bryght, their long-time partner. The merger began when Robert Scales, CEO and founder of Raincity, and Kris Krug, former president of Bryght (and new president of Raincity), travelled together to Shanghai to scout out new offices and decided their companies ideally complemented each other. In addition to being able to “outsource to ourselves,” according to Krug, Raincity Studios Shanghai will also be able to work on internal projects in China, and added that Raincity is also providing some employees with Mandarin lessons. The company is on the lookout for sysadmins and PHP developers locally, and needs developers and project managers in Shanghai, and Scales will be moving to China to run the new office.
