Hello, we're Proof
Our purpose at Proof is to make the internet delightfully human. Our platform harnesses the power of social proof that you often see offline and helps bring it online. Over 15,000 websites trust our software to increase conversions.
Why Work with Us?
We're a mission driven company that likes to think of our business in the long-term. Our team is customer obsessed, honest, data-driven, and full of employees that share the same values. In the tech world, there's often a focus on short-term growth. At Proof, our leadership is laser-focused on building a company that will be around for 100+ years.
An Insider's view of Proof
How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?
Proof has the best work-life balance of any company where I've worked. I especially appreciate how leadership values work quality over time spent at a desk. For instance, we have unlimed PTO, a flexible schedule, and a weekly remote day. Plus, all 3 founders have young families, so they are very understanding of commitments outside of the office.
How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?
We're a product and design-led company, which is unique for a startup of our size in Austin. As a designer here, I get to work with nearly every person in the company on different projects — from building design systems to reworking the UX for our app. It makes every day different, and I'm genuinely excited to get the office every morning.
How has your career grown since starting at the company?
This is my first time working at a startup. And at times, it has been a little difficult adjusting to the uncertainty and lack of clear role definition that comes with that. But I've grown more in this role than any point in my career — it's been challenging, extremely motivating, and unbelievably fun. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
Head of Finance
What is your vision for the company?
My vision for Proof is to build a long-term business that helps our customers grow using honest methods. We started with Social Proof Notifications, and now we're building a robust Customer Powered Marketing platform for SAAS companies. As I build Proof, I'm focused on creating a company that leads the industry in customer focus and great culture.
Founder & CEO
What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?
One challenge (albeit a fun one) is that we stay up to date with the most recent versions of frameworks and languages, and we apply them to everything build. Honestly, it's a developer's dream. Another technical challenge that I enjoy working on is getting to help with devops and project planning projects.
