What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is great! Payfone's done a good job hiring people who really fit the company culture, so everyone gets along.

Implementation Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I'm constantly challenged to think outside the box. The complexity of our products creates an environment where the projects I'm working on require that I switch between several skills from documentation to data analysis and research. It couldn't get any better! I have a wider and deeper understanding of how a tech company operates.
