An Insider's view of HPR

What’s the vibe like in the office?

HPR strikes a great team vibe in the office. Everyone gets along, is super helpful, friendly, and hard-working. I haven't experienced a more comfortable work setting than at HPR. To top it off, we like to balance the hard work with plenty of fun activities like ping pong or board games. I couldn't be happier with my decision to join the team!


Software Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

HPR has a very collaborative environment, so I always spend at least a bit of time everyday working with the more junior engineers and our clients. Typically there are a few daily meetings, and in the afternoons I almost always have time to focus on my projects and coding.
