Transparency builds trust, and trust propels teams. We're open with our strategy, plans, risks, progress, and setbacks. We share information across teams clearly and consistently through the good times and the bad. Everyone freely asks questions and shares ideas or concerns.
Underdogs win because they think different and have something to prove. We look for opportunities to challenge established ideas, try new things, and take risks. We make decisions, act with urgency, and know how to do more with less.
We’re here to grow
Growing our business fuels our personal and professional growth. We build strong feedback loops to continuously learn and improve. We deliver direct and kind feedback, ask for help, and always lend a hand. We value potential over experience.
Our differences are our strengths

Why We Work Here
“I worked at a company that was using Pingboard! I saw firsthand how much it helped create a culture of transparency, trust and fun. I'm passionate about the psychology of workplace culture and have really enjoyed helping companies create an experience their people love.”
“I’ve been working at Pingboard as a Product Manager for almost a year now, and I can honestly say that it is by far the best place I’ve worked. They provide a lot of great benefits including solid medical, dental, and vision insurance, unlimited PTO, a yearly work stipend to build your home office, and a yearly $150 to donate to any charity of your choice. I also would be remiss to mention that my coworkers are incredible! Pingboard takes its hiring process very seriously, and only brings on team members who they believe will work hard and get along well with everyone. This has created a great work atmosphere where I feel comfortable talking to and learning from everyone, even if it’s only virtually! The last thing I’ll say is that the product we’re building here at Pingboard is incredible. We are truly working to build better work lives for our customers, and I love working at a place where I can be proud of the product we produce.”
“I work at Pingboard to help growing companies connect and empower their teams! I know how important a simple tool such as Pingboard is, especially in a remote world! Pingboard truly has a measurable impact on how employees work and interact with each other and it's very rewarding to help contribute to this. Not only do we have a great product (which we all use internally!), but also a very positive work culture which helps facilitate social interaction, teamwork and open communication.”
“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.”
“Having worked in the HR space for the better part of a decade, I’ve seen it all - the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. So I was initially drawn to Pingboard because the product was solving a very real problem. But working here has opened my eyes to what a real healthy working environment is. I get to do meaningful work, with genuine people for a company that sees me as a whole person.”
“Pingboard is an excellent place for an engineer to level up. The engineering leadership has the winning combination of high standards and high confidence in their team. I added features into production on my first week here which is a lot different from my previous jobs where it would be weeks or even months before anything was deployed to a testing environment. This makes my work feel meaningful and I'm more thoughtful and careful to make sure that my code is production ready. I also like the fact that Pingboard doesn't conform to an enterprise Agile style of software development. Instead of trying to estimate work at the beginning of the sprint, developers are given 6 weeks to work on a project and scope is re-evaluated as we get closer to the end of the 6 weeks. This results in a healthier developer-product owner relationship because it removes the feeling that developers are not delivering on promised features. I feel like I can really focus on improving as an engineer and I'm happy that I work at Pingboard.”
“I work at Pingboard because our team is supportive and wants to help me grow into a career that I am proud of. Because of the nature of our product, our managers spend a lot of time thinking about the best way to keep employees engaged, excited and successful in their work life. I love working at Pingboard because they value potential over experience and are willing to invest in my future.”
“Pingboard is definitely a people-first company. I joined the team in April of 2020 and time and time again I'm amazed by how Pingboard leadership stands behind the company values with actions, not just words. I'm surrounded by people who care about the product and our customers. My colleagues are respectful, kind, and friendly to one another. We celebrate being unique, asking questions, and being our authentic selves. We have clear goals, we communicate well and encourage insights, so we can continue to grow individually and as an organization. I found a gem with this organization and I feel very lucky to not only enjoy the work that I do and to have super smart and kind coworkers, but also enjoy using the product I help support.”
“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 ;)”
“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!””
