Growing With Perficient: 4 Employees Share Their Success Stories

In today’s working world, many employees are seeking much more than just a steady paycheck. They are looking for opportunities to advance their careers and grow as professionals, no matter their level of experience or seniority.

Perficient’s dynamic and ongoing growth provides our colleagues with opportunities for success and advancement that aren’t found elsewhere. Unlike other firms, we don’t have an outdated promotion system based solely on years with the company.

Our success as an organization provides opportunities to heighten your skills and rapidly accelerate career advancement. We are a firm with an entrepreneurial mindset that hires self-motivated people who have a drive and desire for success.

But don’t just take our word for it. Hear firsthand from four employees how they have shaped their career paths at Perficient:


“Since joining Perficient I have had the opportunity to engage with many of the company’s business units. My prior role in the IBM Business Analytics group was to build relationships with customers and prospects. I’d been doing this for several years and was looking for different opportunities to continue my career growth, so I reached out to one of our leaders to discuss the possibility of creating a new role focused on selling solutions to finance departments. With the support of my managers, I was able to help create a role that leveraged some of my existing skills and opened the door to new challenges.”

Bob Hardin, Director, Company Wide Practices, has been with Perficient for 2 1/2 years

Perficient has been a great resource for my growth and development. After building some strong customer relationships on a national level, I was asked to lead our west coast Microsoft partner alliance. I relocated from Seattle to southern California, where I now build and maintain our relationship with Microsoft. Perficient has offered opportunities I never dreamed of and I’m just at the beginning of my adventure.”

Christopher Wagner, Alliance Manager, has been with Perficient for 2 years

“Perficient has elevated my career to a stage where I am able to sell the complete Oracle portfolio of solutions. In addition, as a business development executive, I have had the opportunity to sell larger, more sophisticated solutions, partner with other business units and leverage our Global Delivery Center. Perficient strikes an ideal balance of providing the growth opportunity and stability an established publicly traded company with the personalized attention and teamwork of a small boutique.”

Steven Bricker, Business Development Executive, has been with Perficient for 8 years


“Perficient has exposed me to a larger world and the chance to make a much bigger impact. Prior to being acquired by Perficient, our UX team was less than 10 people. Now, we are six times that and part of a national practice. I have been able to share my experiences to help make Perficient XD better, and my colleagues have helped better me with knowledge, expertise, and processes that I had not been exposed to before. I now get to work on projects utilizing many different technologies, and larger projects for more recognized brands. It has been a great learning and growing experience, and I feel that it’s just beginning.”

Tor Gundersen, Creative Director, Perficient XD, has been with Perficient for 1½ years
