I started as a contractor to create Pingboard iPhone MVP. I enjoyed the whole process so much that I decided to come on board as mobile developer in 2014.
In past I have worked with startups where everything is a closed book and no one but the upper management knows what is happening. This company, on the other hand, is completely opposite. We get to geek out on all the growth metrics, funding terms and product strategy.
Also, the best part and this is a crucial one, if it hadn't been for Pingboard I would not have the chance to do parkour. I call this a win-win.
At Pingboard, I get to spend the day making work better for people at organizations everywhere. It’s inspiring to help companies and their employees thrive by bringing a modern approach to how information is shared inside the workplace. Plus, I get to work with a focused, talented team of people who genuinely care about the experience of each person who interacts with Pingboard. We have high standards for the work we do and the way we do it. At the core is trust, transparency, and respect. We’re tackling difficult problems together and constantly learning how to make Pingboard the product and Pingboard the company even better.
It’s rare to find such a young company with so much talent and expertise. I was drawn to Pingboard because of the team here and the opportunity to build something new from the ground up. I joined at the end of 2014 and now with a few years under my belt, I can tell you that joining Pingboard has been the best decision of my professional career.
We have a diverse team with different perspectives, experiences and most importantly – opinions. We don’t always agree, but we always respect each other’s opinions.
I find it invigorating to be able to have the ability to offer my opinions to all aspects of the business and for those opinions to be valued by the rest of the team. From sales to marketing to product to design to culture – literally I feel comfortable to add my perspective to any aspect of the business.
I joined Pingboard in May of 2015, and the first thing that struck me was how focused and sharp the entire team was. From Product to Development to Sales, it’s definitely a more experienced crew than most startups, and it gives you the sense that it’s a company firing on all cylinders. It’s also a weirdly transparent company; ever since I joined, I’ve learned more about the intricacies of sales numbers, marketing strategies, cryptic fundraising acronyms, and our present financials than I thought could be possible. Which is a great thing, by the way—I never feel like my intelligence is questioned or that I’m being kept in the dark. Bill is the rare CEO that has one foot in the trenches of product development, one foot in the future of business development, one foot in VC-world, and pretty much every other part of the company where we’re growing. Bill has many feet.
As for the day-to-day workplace culture kind of stuff, it’s pretty hard to complain. We have our own house-like office in a cool part of town, no vacation policy, a coffee shop tab, and it’s just lovely, in general, working with the people here. We love to laugh!!! HAHAHAHA!
Every day I feel like I am part of a team. A team that is eager to learn from each other, challenge one another, understand problems, and find solutions. I was hired at Pingboard in October of 2015. Since then, we have dramatically changed every aspect of our business from sales and marketing to the product itself. I have been apart of every one of those changes in some way. Enough can't be said about amazing teamwork and transparency over here. It's truly a world-class culture and I'm proud to be a part of it.
I first heard of Pingboard as a customer, so I knew its value firsthand. It has been an awesome opportunity to make that transition and work on improving a product that I already enjoyed. Everyone here has the same positive outlook and wants to cooperate to make the best product we possibly can. Working together like that, with members from other teams, keeps things interesting. I get to hear the latest updates on funding and share victories with sales, and it's been great to feel like I have a real impact on the company. I can see how the code I commit makes a difference for our customers and how it contributes to their—and our—success. There's a great balance of helping one another out but still having the freedom to dive in and get things done, and this combination of collaboration and independence makes for an exciting, dynamic work environment, and guarantees that every day is interesting.
One of the things I appreciate most about Pingboard is how, as both the company and the product, it regularly presents me with-- I hesitate to say "challenges" because that word often implies arrogance or hostility, and you'll find neither of those attitudes here-- opportunities, then, for improvement and growth. Learning at Pingboard is not mandated or demanded; rather, it's encouraged and fostered, and it tends to happen organically as the people who work here have a natural curiosity. And in the pursuit of learning, as the line goes-- questions, comments and concerns are always welcomed. (Especially concerns. Our app is full of concerns! </bad Rails joke>)
The leadership at Pingboard is another huge draw for me. Decisions about our roadmap and priorities are well-thought out from multiple perspectives. It's extremely rewarding to get to work on projects that not only expand my technical skillset but also fulfill a demonstrated customer need.
As a software developer, it was a breath of fresh air going from a 5000+ person company, where I have been the past 10 years, back to a startup.
There's no 6+ levels of hierarchy with VPs and managers of managers, superfluous meetings, or roles that become out-of-touch with the product or people. Here, everyone is passionate about the quality and craftsmanship of the product, the experiences our customers have, and how the company is doing. We celebrate each new customer win and each code deploy. It is very exciting to travel this path together with everyone at Pingboard.
Your work and decisions matters here, and everyone know each other individually, from other developers to the funny sales guys and gals, to the visionary designer and product manager, and our intelligent and friendly CEO Bill, who is a technologist at heart and knows the startup landscape well, but also understand the importance of individuals and building a great team that will do great things.
Pingboard will feel like your extended family, including a few crazy but cool uncles and aunts ;)
After making a recent career change, I joined the Pingboard sales team in January 2017. I can honestly say it’s the best decision I’ve made for my career so far!
Working for Pingboard is incredibly rewarding because you are exposed to constant growth and you can see how your small part continuously makes a huge impact for both the business and the clients we serve. From day one, I have felt nothing but supported and valued in my current role with the Sales team.
My favorite part about working for Pingboard has to be the talented, brilliant, hard-working team we have. Every single person goes to great lengths to help one another and consistently pull together to hit our goals. Bottom line, if you have the opportunity to join our team - take it! We’ve got a special thing going on here, that’s for sure!
