An Insider's view of Postscript

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We are ambitious and work hard, but we truly want everyone to show up as their full selves (even if that means kids or dogs making a zoom appearance from time to time). I feel encouraged to take the time I need to rest and recover and be present for my family, so that when I am working I am able to give my best.

Amanda

Head of Talent Acquisition

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We are really good at Slack. For a fully remote organization, it’s a unique challenge to get multiple teams on the same page. Our shared channels are open for anyone to join; we use them to discuss everything from Q&A and bugs, to the roadmap. Overall, it's easy to get ahold of each other, and thanks to the quality of our team, it just works.

Vishak

Senior Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to enable seamless ecommerce experiences over SMS. Imagine being able to purchase new products, chat with customer support, or start a return, all within a text thread with your favorite brand. We achieve this by providing online brands (from small shops to brands that you would recognize) with self-serve, easy-to-use software.

Adam

CEO and Founder

What projects are you most excited about?

Postscript is becoming a front-runner in determining industry standards for optimal SMS send frequency and content, segmented by individual brand characteristics. We use quality testing protocols and are gaining exciting insights here! We're also building out ML tools to enable natural 2-way communication with subscribers.
