An Insider's view of Prolific Interactive

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Prolific has created an environment that helps me to do my best work. My design team is supportive and genuinely driven to do first-class work. Leadership takes the time to communicate on a personal level, and our partners are engaged and they challenge us in a way that encourages us to focus on real value. I feel like I'm growing here every day.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of Prolific's core values is 'Roles aren't Boundaries'. Working for a company that values this makes it easy to promote collaboration with other teams. I work closely with our People Ops and Finance teams to build new processes, to find ways to optimize our budget, and to implement initiatives that I hope truly make a difference agency wide.

Pilar Johnson

Director of Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

When I joined Prolific, I was very green to tech and office jobs in general, but the team embraced my new-ness as a way to offer fresh eyes on their processes. Fast forward a couple of years and Prolific is helping me plan my career roadmap, pairing me with senior Product Managers, and putting me on projects that will help to broaden my skillset.

Rachel

Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

So far, Prolific has satisfied my hunger to always be learning. The engineering team is always willing to try new things, and we get to work on products that push us to give our best, which means I’m really growing as an Engineer. It’s inspiring to be able to work with a diverse group of people who are so passionate about creating great products
