DENVER, Colo. – A leading software company for the waste and recycling industry, Starlight Software Solutions (Starlight) recently welcomed Michael Mackey as Chief Technology Officer. Mike’s addition to the team comes at the threshold of Starlight’s next generation product release.

Starlight provides robust software solutions for haulers and facility managers of solid waste and recycling materials, helping improve profitability and overall business growth through live monitoring and analysis of key metrics, and the ability to make real-time functional and operational changes that dynamically improve efficiencies. Mike’s role at Starlight is instrumental in leading the company’s product evolution and expansion which will specifically address the needs of companies operating in the roll off, commercial, residential, recycling, and portable toilet spaces. All solutions expedite the daily functions associated with dispatch, inventory management, route optimization, material profiling, facility management and more.

Mike brings nearly 20 years of deep experience in software developing and engineering leadership to Starlight Software Solutions, most recently serving AgilePQ, an IoT security software system. As CTO for AgilePQ, he successfully redesigned and launched the firm’s core product to streamline integration and user experiences. Other positions prior to joining the Starlight team include engineering, architecture, and implementation responsibilities for software start-up companies in the Seattle area which were acquired by NUANCE, AMDOCS and ADP. At Starlight, Mike will be responsible for leading a team of software engineers through a robust product roadmap and enhancing the current software system’s ability to integrate with other, third-party applications in the cloud.

“We are excited to have Mike join our team and lead the development of what we know is a game changing solution for our industry,” said Marty Kilmer, Chief Operating Officer of Starlight Software Solutions. “Mike has the precise experience and skills needed to continue adapting our proven software system for current and changing market needs, and give businesses the tools they want and need to reach their goals.”

Joining Starlight in November 2021, Mackey’s team will soon be releasing a new generation of Starlight’s top-rated solutions which are designed for the specific needs of companies in the Roll-Off, Commercial, Recycling, and Portable Toilet sectors of the waste management industry.


The driving goal of the entire Starlight team is to help waste management businesses optimize profitability through live monitoring of key business metrics, real-time analysis of operational performance, and the ability to dynamically make changes to instantly improve efficiencies. Starlight differs from other software solutions for the waste management industry because of its consistent Five-Star customer service, online and smart phone order taking apps for contractors and residential customers, and a suite of features designed by clients, assuring its user-influenced system delivers what matters most for improving everyday processes and eliminating wasted time, wasted payroll, and wasted inventory opportunities.

Starlight Software Solutions was started in 2015 by Bill Bradley, owner of 5280 Waste Solutions, to initially serve the roll-off sector of waste management. Since it has grown to serve businesses across the commercial, residential, recycling, portable toilet and facility management sectors. Headquartered in Denver, CO, Starlight employees several waste management experts nationwide.
