“The people are tremendous and eager to win. The technology is top notch. A very team oriented atmosphere with plenty of room to grow your career. After going public, the buzz has been loud internally. The company has taken many steps forward in terms of putting people in places where they can reach their potential.
“Absolute rock solid product. Very friendly and fun people to work with, everyone helps out everyone else. Still a small startup feel even though the company has been around over 10 years.
