Life at Perficient

Love Learning? Come to Perficient!

Globally, Perficient is always seeking innovation — not just for our clients, but also how can we elevate and optimize our internal processes and experience for our colleagues. A passion for learning is a trait that unites people across our company. 

There is no shortage of educational opportunity at Perficient, whether it be virtually on Microsoft Teams in the Perficient Book Club chat, collectively at the Career Growth Panels hosted by our Women in Tech ERG, or within Perficient Academy, our internal learning platform which offers thousands of free training to our employees to help level up their skills. We pride ourselves on offering a continuous learning environment; after all, that’s how we deliver innovative excellence to the world’s biggest brands. 

It comes as no surprise that our Bright Paths students, a select group of women chosen to participate in a 10-week, Perficient-sponsored bootcamp to learn how to code, would share that same scholastic enthusiasm. 

Marjana Sarker

“Before Bright Paths, I was a research fellow studying mechanisms of aging in different animal models, I also worked with large datasets with clinical studies. I would describe myself as endlessly curious and I really enjoy problem-solving. Innovation is something I love talking about and I really enjoy having discussions on the long-term and short-term impacts of science and technology.”

Nicole Dreon

Before Bright Paths, this nonprofit director and yoga and meditation instructor began dabbling in coding when creating a website for her yoga business. “I am a friendly person who genuinely cares for others. It is important for me to contribute to the collective while always learning. Life is for learning and growing.”

Joy Erdenemandakh

As a self-described INTJ, this data and policy analyst with the State of Minnesota turned coder shares that her favorite saying is “Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.”

Kioshi Neal

This former technical support specialist on her path to being a QA and software developer identifies as kind, energetic, and always ready to learn.”

Kelsey Ravin

“I was a social worker for seven years and have most of my masters in that field. I’m inherently calm and level, with a thirst for knowledge and drive toward growth.”

Rosemond Ho

A former student in Mechanical Engineering is now a student with Bright Paths on her way to becoming a software engineer or developer! She is “collaborative, willing to learn, and excited!”

Noelle Notermann

“Right now, I’m a musician by training/education, and also studied languages and math. Currently, I work in higher education supporting student success. Overall, I’m deeply curious about the world and about people (I ask a ton of questions!), and also somewhat playful/humorous. After all, nothing is impossible. The word itself says ‘I’m possible!’”
