An Insider's view of Purchasing Platform

What's something quirky about your company?

One of the greatest constants that has persevered through every workplace PP has ever inhabited is that of our Yoda-shaped candy bowl holder. Yoda's outstretched hands and offerings of sweets have come to be associated with two things that have proved to be integral to the company's continued success: a sense of humor and Peanut M&M's.


Buying Desk Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The tech team is a partner to the business. We design solutions that drive the vision and have impact. In order to understand our users (internal and external), we prioritize listening. Some of our listening initiatives are: "Take a Developer to Work" shadow days, a request portal, and slack channels managed by the Tech team.
