An Insider's view of Packback
What’s the vibe like in the office?
I am excited to come to work every morning, not only because my role is meaningful and dynamic, but also because my days are filled with the high energy of my coworkers and kisses from our office pooch, Pepper! The Packback office is fueled by a team of passionate, curious, and supportive individuals that both motivate and celebrate one another.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?
We are constantly trying to figure out how to ask more impactful questions. As a company focused around curiosity and discussion, we strive to understand professors' needs and help consult in the best way possible. We analyze data, find the gaps, and question our way to the root of the problem. We are fearlessly curious.
How does the company support your career growth?
Packback supports my career growth by allowing me opportunities to share my ideas and actually implement them. Instead of just feeling "heard," working at Packback makes me feel like I'm contributing to building an amazing company. The professional development opportunities at Packback make it not just a job, but a place dedicated to my growth.
How does your team reward individual success?
There are numerous avenues in which Packback rewards individual success. The options range from friends publicly sharing your success stories at the company-wide meetings to ringing a large bell bolted to the wall to celebrate your biggest steps forward. Results never go unnoticed and are ALWAYS rewarded!
