What I like about working at FastPivot:

The variety of projects and the company culture.

My Coolest project ever:

Tough. Probaby the project with Teno – they’ve since changed platforms, but we integrated a Flash design tool with their Y! store catalog (using FLEX) to pull charm bracelet components into an interactive tool for designing custom products. This meant that the available components in the interface could be managed via their Y! store data, allowing them to add/remove charms, chains, etc. on the go without having to re-generate the flash file. There were several different pieces by different parties that all had to be pulled together to make the tool work correctly, and it was exciting to see it all come together.
