Providence Business News and the Providence Journal (print only) just wrote articles about our new digs. We think it’s cool that they appreciate our love for a dog-friendly office.

Dog-friendliness is just one of the perks of working at the software design and development company that Nick started – and funded – as a one-man business that’s growing but still in what he calls its “by the bootstraps” phase.

Kishfy attracts talent with a simple philosophy – he cares about the “things that matter” to the business and not the things that don’t – i.e., not what hours his employees work or how they dress. Perks at the new 3,000-square-foot space at 127 Dorrance St. include a ping-pong table, espresso machine, catered lunches, copy room-turned-bike garage and a type of beer-of-the-month club.

Everyone likes to focus on the ping-pong tables and the beer, but the truth is that when you work as long and as hard as this team does, you need some outlets!
