Founded in 2013 by a small group of ambitious engineers, the original PromptWorks crew came up with a plan to design its culture the same way it designed software: custom.

Having worn nearly every hat in the tech industry collectively, the team set out to create the company they’d always wanted to work for, with a culture that respected the work of each and every contributor.

Today, using techniques like pair programming, PromptWorks has enabled its highly-skilled engineers and designers to efficiently share knowledge and build high-value software products simultaneously. Combining its uniquely collaborative work style with perks such as continuous learning opportunities, catered lunches and “Talk Tuesdays,” the custom software company has struck a satisfying balance between working hard and living well.

At its core, PromptWorks specializes in turning big ideas into custom-made digital projects. Driven by a desire to see its clients succeed, the company fuses agile processes, the highest-caliber code and automated testing to put out ‘wildly successful,’ sustainable software that clients can rely on, every time.

Of course, dangling over the cutting edge of technology requires a tight grasp on the value of employee growth and learning. For that very purpose, PromptWorks employees are given non-billable time each week to learn, create or experiment with any project that will enhance their own growth or that of the entire company.

PromptWorks’ proactive, tangible efforts give back to the Philadelphia tech community, as well as diversify its applicant pool, are widely appreciated across the company and throughout the community. Its breadth of work can be seen through its organization of and participation in a vast range of conferences, Meetups, apprenticeships and community events that educate and inspire.
