An Insider's view of Productive Edge

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I started out as a consultant with Productive Edge in April 2015, so it feels like my second home. The project I work on requires me to be at the client's office from Monday to Thursday., so it always feels like I'm home when I come to the PE office on Friday!


Senior Quality Assurance Engineer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

There is a very special atmosphere for developers at Productive Edge. Technology is constantly changing and in every project, I am challenged to do something – big or small – that I’ve never done before. That atmosphere keeps me motivated in constant learning, which is essential for a good software developer.


Senior Architect

What does career growth look like on your team?

From our interns up through our managing partners, we believe everyone has the opportunity to learn from each other. We run flat where our directors and partners are the front-line working with our team to ensure they are heard and have a clear growth plan in place. Yes, the door is always open.


Solutions Director - Mobile, Cloud & IoT

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Productive Edge takes a realistic and practical approach to innovation and growth. This approach makes complex ideas and technology trends accessible and understandable across the organization. PE really inspires our people to push their skills and grow in new ways. It is an exciting organization to be a part of.


Delivery Director

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned the importance of teamwork and communication. At PE, all projects are team-based with a lot of things in motion during each step of the process: from the sales team to the delivery teams to the finance and leadership teams. Having that camaraderie and communication makes a smooth process that works internally as well as for clients.
