An Insider's view of Prove (Formerly Payfone)

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. It makes it easy to work hard when you know everyone else in the office is equally motivated and working to make the company more successful. Payfone also does a great job hosting events that get everyone together outside of work.

Easton

Implementation Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

The biggest problem our team is trying to solve is how to serve our current clients while also transitioning them to a more cutting edge tech stack in order to create new innovative products.

Elijah

Director of Software Engineer

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.

Moses

Product Owner

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I provide direction when needed, instill self-direction, and team collaboration. If the team identifies a gap in our product I ask the team how they would solve the problem. This enables them to take the initiative and brainstorm. However at the end of the day, we are a team, and team culture and innovation is what drives creativity.

Crystal

Director of Product Management

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful on our team you have to be willing to learn, have passion, and be a team player. I'm never afraid of asking questions because my teammates are so supportive and willing to help. We are all working towards a common goal, helping provide the best security and authentication for our clients!
