Before joining Pixafy my résumé consisted of jobs and internships at various large corporations. After interviewing and agreeing to join a startup like Pixafy, I wondered about how working for a company with 15 employees would differ from my past experiences of working with companies with 10,000 or more employees. I’ve worked in Scrum/Agile Project Management environments in the past; however, at Pixafy I am entrusted with managing large projects whose outcome can greatly affect Pixafy’s long-term sustainability.
That being said, I am certainly happy that I made the transition from becoming employee #28303 to someone whose ideas and suggestions are not only taken into consideration, but are also encouraged. At Pixafy I have the privilege of working with an extremely talented group of designers and engineers to create websites that are not only easy on the eyes, but are also easy to navigate and maintain. I could not be prouder of the work we produce.
Every day at Pixafy is unique and brings new challenges to meet. Whether it’s keeping up with the ever-changing technology industry or learning how to get the most out of each team member, working at Pixafy certainly keeps you on your toes and has taught me a small company doesn’t necessarily have to have small dreams.
