The Brillient Story

Brillient Corporation started operations in 2006 in a small closet sized “office” in our founder Sukumar Iyer’s home. Driven by the entrepreneurial urge, he had just given up a promising career at a global consulting firm to pursue his dream to build an extraordinary business. This desire is reflected in our name. As Sukumar often says, “we hire brilliant people and then get out of their way so they can show their brilliance. Together, we are a mosaic of extraordinary people who can do amazing things and exceed our client’s expectations.” 

A key part of our story is our focus on two of our main stakeholders – our clients and our employees. We define success, and growth, as having not just happy clients but delighted clients and delighted employees who derive personal as well as career fulfillment from their jobs. 

We are proud of the spectrum of diversity across our workforce. Our employees come from across the world, with different cultures, racial/ethnic backgrounds, languages, and cuisines (often reflected in our potluck lunches), symbolizing all that is best about America.  

A key element of Brillient’s culture is innovation. We define innovation as going beyond the status quo, questioning why things are done a certain way, and looking for incremental and exponential improvements. Innovation goes hand in hand with taking risks, and, sometimes, failure, which is encouraged as a necessary step along the way to success.  

Our story is well on its way, with stupendous growth over the last 6 years, and the best yet to come. If you are up to a challenge, willing to roll up your sleeves and be part of a dynamic, fast paced and fun team, we welcome you to become a part of our story. 

Our Name

Our logo symbolizes a radiant brilliance, green as a positive color exemplifying our focus on being an environmentally conscious company and all lower case letters to show humility and the urge to learn. What about the spelling? The domain names for brilliant spelled correctly were not available when we were founded. In those days, companies ending in ent (for enterprise) were popular, so Brillient we became.

"You and your team members always do an outstanding job! However, your performance in the last several weeks with the IVR down, limited resources and the increased call volume has been exceptional. I want you to know that Center Management appreciates all of your hard work and your immense contribution to the efficient and smooth running of this center. Your team is invaluable, and we truly appreciate you."
