An Insider's view of Pushnami

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is open, communicative, relaxing, committed, and motivating all at once! Sounds unrealistic? It really isn’t. We all work together, with an open-door policy, while completing projects, and playing some music in the background. The “go-getter,” “let’s crush this!” music. It’s enthralling!


Client Success Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I am very excited for the future development Pushnomics! It gets better and better every day and each major update seems like a game-changer for both us and our clients. It will be fun to see how ML (machine learning) continues to reshape our business!

Of the broad range of technical challenges we face, as the backend team at Pushnami, the scale we operate at and the pace of the market are the biggest obstacles. We employ agile and extreme programming to overcome these challenges and deliver quality work in a timely manner.
