If the life of a Quality Assurance Analyst could be summed up in one song, it might be Limp Bizkit’s Y2K classic “Break Stuff” (to refresh your memory, the very ’complex’ chorus is “give me something to break”… over and over). The song is quite fitting for QA, but here at Pixafy, we’re pushed to look beyond the standard job requirements and to dive deeper into the ways in which we test our products. (more…)
I’ve always had an affinity for mass transit, an affinity that has been strengthened since taking my current job with Pixafy. Coming from Connecticut, using Metro-North, which allows me to take a train into the city instead of drive, is a must. I got to know the subway, for both getting to the office and to other clients. And more recently, after moving to Stamford, I started using buses occasionally, as I live more than a mile from the train station and when bad weather hits, walking isn’t always feasible. (more…)
Q: Where are you originally from? Do you still have family there? Do you have any siblings? If so, what do they do? Any significant/insignificant others? Children? Pets?
Josh: I was born in Virginia; my parents were in the Air Force at the time, so I was born on Langley Air Force Base in Hampton. We lived in Virginia until I was done with elementary school, then we moved to Connecticut, which brought us closer to a lot of my family, especially on my dad’s side (pretty much all of mom’s side of the family live in New Mexico). I have an adopted younger sister who’s still in college. I’m in a long-term relationship; no marriage, no children, and other than the family dogs that I had to leave behind when I went to college, no pets. (more…)

Raechel: I originally grew up on a farm in Illinois. Yep, horses, cows, billy goats, you name it! Then my mom got re-married when I was 8 and we ended up living right outside of Chicago, where I lived from ages 8-19. I was out on my own living downtown Chicago, and yes, all of my immediate family is still near Chicago.
Yes. I have three older brothers. It was a rough childhood.
I have a boyfriend who’s from Long Island; we met about four months after I moved here, and we’re still going strong! (more…)
