An Insider's view of Punchkick Interactive

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

As a new mom, juggling being a parent and my career, seemed intimidating. But I was wrong. Punchkick is supportive of my new schedule and encourages me to focus on my family. Their support not only motivates me to work harder, but gives me confidence that I’ve chosen the right place to call my work home.

Sarah Hertzberg

Director of Client Success, TUX

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The best ideas at Punchkick come from within our team, and one of the best things I can do to foster creativity is to actively help Punchkickers surface their ideas and run them through our internal advice channel. Getting feedback and support for big ideas or sweeping change can seem intimidating to some, but it definitely doesn’t have to be.

Zak Dabbas

Co-Founder

What are some things you learned at the company?

Punchkick offers the opportunity to work with so many different technologies. No one project or client is the same. As a result, you get to work with numerous frameworks, languages, and tools throughout the year. I really enjoy the fact that I get to learn something new every day I come into work.
