We know that choosing your first job is an important and difficult decision. Since our founding in 2008, we have worked to make Perfect Sense a great place for new graduates to start their careers by empowering them to contribute on day one, providing them with dedicated mentors to help them learn, and challenging them with different problems to expand their skill set. We hope that you will join our team!
In a little over a year, I have already had the opportunity to be the lead developer on two projects. These experiences allowed me to learn a lot about project management—monitoring developers and their workload, planning releases, and reviewing code. It's a challenge and a lot of responsibility but its very satisfying to point at a website and know that I played an integral part in its development.
From our CEO, David Gang
In my opinion, college recruiting is the foundation of building an excellent company. At Perfect Sense, we rely on young, smart individuals to inject new viewpoints, curious intellect, and boundless energy to keep us competitive in the ever-changing technology landscape. Through our college recruiting efforts, we have expanded both our diversity and our capabilities by welcoming and cultivating the next generation of top-tier engineering, product, and design talent.
We want you to join Perfect Sense and know that you will play a vital role in helping us fulfill our potential in the years to come.
By starting your career at Perfect Sense, you will be joining a rotational assignment environment where, within your first two years, you will be assigned to no less than four different client-facing project teams. With dedicated mentors, you will be exposed to a variety of disciplines that enrich your capabilities and push you to fulfill your potential.
Culture of Excellence
By coming to Perfect Sense, you will be joining a uniquely talented team of developers, designers, and product managers committed to crafting innovative solutions for our partners.
I've found the environment to be more of a meritocracy. The talented developers here are allowed the freedom to thrive, driving product direction, and even developing their own new products. It is a refreshing environment, and the primary reason why I have found myself here for over 5 years now.
Here, you will be surrounded by talented mentors eager to help you grow in your career. We believe that collaborative teams of smart and interesting individuals from a variety of backgrounds enable us to provide the highest quality product.
We hold each other to the highest standards to produce the best quality work. Our delivery teams run lean, which allows you to voice your opinions, grow more quickly, and have a greater impact on the final product. There is no hiding in the corner at Perfect Sense. When your product launches, you can be proud knowing that you made significant contributions in its delivery.
One vs. Many
At Perfect Sense, you will have the opportunity to work on projects for some of the most well-recognized global corporations and brands. Within your first two years, you will work on at least four different client-facing project teams.
Perfect Sense provides a unique experience that will allow you to work not just for one company, but for many. As a result, our work never grows stale. Every day presents new challenges that require thoughtful problem solving. This exposure provides you with a rich portfolio to showcase your work and a proud sense of accomplishment.
Make a Difference
Perfect Sense was founded with giving back to its community core to its mission. Through ongoing, concrete actions our mission aims at getting our employees off the sidelines to join hand-in-hand in bringing joy to the lives of others, while gaining a greater understanding of our community. Our efforts focus on three populations—indidivuals with intellectual disabilities, at-risk youth, and wounded veterans.
Over the years, Perfect Sense employees have had the opportunity to volunteer at Special Olympics World Games in Pyeongchang, Los Angeles, and Austria; snowboard with Special Olympics athletes in Aspen; build bicycles that are distributed through the YMCA to at-risk youth during the holidays; and golf alongside wounded veterans. Additionally, Perfect Sense celebrates every employee's 5-year anniversary with a $1,000 contribution to a charity of his/her choice.
My favorite project so far has been Johnson & Johnson. Only being six months out of college, it was a really cool opportunity to be a part of a from-scratch redesign of their main corporate website. Both my time management and technical skills were challenged as we only had 8 weeks to complete the project!
