Previously on the blog, we mentioned that Pixafy’s President Uri Foox spoke at Magento’s Imagine eCommerce Conference on a panel about tips for boosting revenue. Uri’s presentation is based on a blog post, “7 forgotten pages in Magento… and how to make them work for you,” which focuses on pages that are often left out of a company’s design and marketing strategy.
Pixafy always looks at various benefits that we can offer our employees. We launched a new one we can’t wait to “dish” about: Catered lunches. (more…)
Our Rewards and Recognition program has been letting peers herald the great work of their teammates for almost a year now, and it’s been inspiring to see why people get nominated over the past year. Two of our relatively new hires were honored in recent months as the program continues in the new year. (more…)
Two years ago, Pixafy launched a new site with branding and design provided by our great partner Red Antler. At the time, Pixafy was still relatively new, and we had less employees and completed projects to tout. That’s certainly changed, and with our plans to appear at the Magento Imagine eCommerce conference, it was time for a refresher. (more…)
Pixafy is a proud Diamond Sponsor at this year’s Magento Imagine eCommerce conference in Las Vegas, Nevada! You can read more about Pixafy’s sponsorship of the event and our commitment to Magento here.
Imagine, the premier global eCommerce gathering, will host an amazing gathering of developers, programmers, Magento enthusiasts, merchants, and partners from around the world. It’s bound to be an incredible, informative experience filled with great parties, delicious food, and fantastic networking opportunities. With only 10 days before Magento’s 2013 Imagine conference, the Pixafy team is gearing up for Vegas!
We’re thrilled to announce that our very own Uri Foox will be speaking at the Imagine 2013 Breakout Speakers session. If you’re interested in how you can use creative strategies to harness typically-neglected Magento pages to boost revenue, definitely stop by and join him! Pixafy will also have a booth at the event, where you can learn more about us and our hosting offering, Herculo.
One of the great things about working at Pixafy is that the environment is friendly. Despite working together all day, it’s a common sight to see staff get together for a lunch, or meet up for after-work activities such as dinners or, earlier this month, a karaoke night. (more…)
Yesterday, Pixafy launched Herculo, an exciting new hosting platform that brings you perfectly-tuned hosting for two of the web’s most exciting and popular content platforms on the web today: WordPress and Magento.
We invite you to check out Herculo and see for yourself why it’s something different in today’s marketplace. And we want to hear from you: what would make running a website easier or better? How can we make Herculo even stronger? We’ll be listening, and responding, as Herculo grows and evolves. (more…)
A photo from our October 2012 photoshoot at Grand Central. Seen from left: Christopher Deneen, Jason Alpert, Eric DiPalma, Sean Buddy, Raechel Boston, Caroline Gabriel and Tariq Chaudhry.
As part of the photoshoot we completed earlier this year, we decided to herald our New York location by bringing the staff to Grand Central Terminal to take pictures. It was a fun process, with photographer Megan McGory capturing everyone individually and in groups, as well as a few portrait-style shots of some of the team, such as president Uri Foox. It was a fun way to break up the shoot and bring a bit of New York into the company photos!
We’ve put up a Facebook album featuring a few of the shots, and we’ve updated photos here and there (including a couple of the other Grand Central shots on previous blog posts); look for an updated staff page, coming soon, which will feature the photos we took during the shoot!
Pixafy continues to celebrate the hard work and ingenuity of our staff with our monthly Rewards and Recognition honor, celebrating the efforts of employees that go above and beyond to find elegant solutions to our problems. (more…)
Pixafy staff listen to the introduction to the security lesson.
An oft-repeated statement is “trust no one.” When it comes to securing something in the world of IT, it’s especially important, and has been the subject of much discussion.
That was the subject of a session on security of web applications led by President Uri Foox. Two-thirds of the company’s staff attended the voluntary session and broke into teams to learn how one simple decision can lead to a complete breakdown in a website’s efforts to keep people out. (more…)
