Perficient promotes an inclusive culture where every employee is challenged, championed, and celebrated. I recently sat down with one of our business analysts, Matthew Sikes, to learn more about his role and the culture at Perficient. We discussed how diverse teams, career growth, and collaborative tech savvy colleagues make Perficient a great employer.

Matthew, thank you for joining me today. I’d love to hear more about your role at Perficient. What does a typical day in this role look like?

I am a business analyst in the healthcare business unit. My typical day starts with a daily team stand-up meeting. After that, my day includes the following:

  • Grooming user stories with technical requirements
  • Meeting with developers to discuss functionality
  • Testing the latest app build for defects
  • Ensuring all tickets from the current sprint are in the right stage of workflow

What excites you about working at Perficient?

I value working across Perficient business units as a utility player on projects in a client-facing role. I am privileged to work on an efficient team that released a mobile app last August and continues to get extended by the client.

As a Perficient employee, I value learning new things every day, collaborating with tech savvy and inclusive colleagues, and participating in the employee stock program.

It is an exciting time to be at Perficient as the company continues to expand. Perficient is a place where consultants at all levels can expect to learn and contribute on projects. There is an extra incentive to do your best work here through the bonus program.

How does a culture of diversity and inclusion at Perficient strengthen your team? What about this culture keeps you motivated in your daily work? 

I came to Perficient to be part of a diverse, tech-savvy team in a flexible environment with opportunities for both personal and corporate growth.

From my perspective, diversity and inclusion entails having a team of people who come from different walks of life and align around a shared process to achieve a desired result. The unique differences that distinguish everyone from one another is what helps strengthen the team.

During my time with Perficient, I have worked with hospital systems, urgent care providers, a regional bank, and a global ingredients manufacturer. All my projects have centered around helping clients achieve business goals with improvements to processes and technology.

The people and team leaders at Perficient keep me motivated to do my best work and get me excited about the future.
