An Insider's view of project44

What’s the vibe like in the office?

When I interviewed, I was instantly attracted by the company culture, its ambiance, liveliness, and healthy vibe. I was impressed with the charisma and enthusiasm of every person I met. Our teams are highly motivated and diverse talent bringing unique experiences and knowledge with them. The vibe is upbeat driven collaboration!

Ravneet Sidhu

Senior Software Engineer in Test

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

From the start, I could tell that project44 was special; we're a group of really smart people who come together with the ability to experiment, try new things, and collaborate.

Portia LaMotte

Digital Marketing Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

There is no set track for career growth so you can take advantage of a lot very quickly. You can work on different projects and teams, develop new processes, build and improve something internally - you are able to advance and get real hands on experience.

Nate Puskaric

Strategic Account Executive

What is your vision for the company?

We are ultimately building a world supply-chain network that fits within a much broader vision of applying modern technology, data science, and data flow technologies to an industry that's as old as time.

Will Hansmann

CTO

What are some social events your company does?

I love being apart of our Culture Committee. If you have an idea, you're encouraged to share! The committee includes team members across the company and we regularly host events like potlucks, lunch and learns, company outings, volunteer events, intramural sports, & happy hours. The people that I work with are the best- never a dull moment.
