How we work

We work in small Scrum teams who have the freedom to improve and create big things. Your success is measured on the quality of each sprint’s outcome.


We know that “slow is fast” when it comes to delivering quality: code reviews, automated testing and continuous integration are essential to our development process.

We partner directly with our clients and get to know their business and pain points before architecting a solution. You will be “client facing” in various capacities throughout a project.

At Praxent, colleagues are more than coworkers. They are teachers, mentors, public speakers and lifelong students. Praxent’s culture is built upon recognizing the knowledge and vision of each team member. We interact regularly to share ideas big and small, recount lessons learned and keep each other on our toes.
