I would describe the vibe in the office as both fun as well as people getting things done. Another strong aspect of the vibe is collaboration. All of the engineering team's desks are on wheels. When people need to work together, they simply move their desks. It's very exciting what gets created when people collaborate together.
Director of Software Engineering
What projects are you most excited about?
Automation projects are what excites me the most. As a QA Engineer, this has helped sharpen my skills and prepare me for what automation testing brings. I believe automation is the way of the future. I’m eager to continue and learn how automation will improve Pax8’s ability to efficiently deliver the highest quality products in the fastest way.
What are some things you learned at the company?
Pax8 has taught me what the power of a solid and positive work culture can do for my motivation, confidence, personal growth and career growth. Being part of such a rapidly evolving environment has shown me how to be agile while remaining grounded, open minded while staying focused and has given me the opportunity to learn from some of the best.

What is your vision for the company?
My vision is that all employees at Pax8 feel tied to our values, to the work we do holistically, and to their fellow employees. I want everyone here to feel that their contributions are valued. I want our people to feel they have challenging work each day, and at the same time have the resources they need to meet those challenges successfully.
Director of People Operations
How does the company support your career growth?
From the recruiting process until now I feel that Pax8 has supported me. Everyone, from executives down to entry level, is there to help and aid you in your growth. Pax8 is a family and they care about you and your growth within the company. Even now there is so much education, resources, people, and so much more here ready and willing to help.
