Working at Perficient offers you the chance to connect with a global community of exceptional colleagues, while also empowering you to thrive in your local community.
Here are five reasons our local colleagues say they love working for Perficient in the city of Atlanta.
1. Team Culture
Our Atlanta team has a very rich culture and amazing employees. The team can be described as “down for anything”, if anyone has any ideas on unique ways to bring people together, this group is on board. Culture is important to this team; the atmosphere in the office is vibrant, and the collaborative spirit among colleagues makes every day enjoyable. The new Atlanta General Manager Joseph Willet has a rich history with Perficient and in his new capacity, he is responsible for leading Perficient’s expansion in the Atlanta market and ensuring exceptional service to our local clients. In the last year, the office has been named a top workplace by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, an award voted on by employees. Perficient was 1 of only 175 companies in Atlanta to be recognized, furthering testament to our company’s incredible culture.
2. Work on Large Clients & Projects
Atlanta has a thriving tech ecosystem, which makes it an excellent location for tech professionals. The city is home to 15+ Fortune 500 companies, most of which Perficient works with, as well as several renowned brands. You’ll get the chance to collaborate with some of Atlanta’s most prominent and forward-thinking corporations, playing a part in groundbreaking initiatives that drive progress and expansion. You will be working on technology programs with some of our biggest partners, such as Adobe, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, and many more. With both of our Atlanta offices strategically located in or near the heart of the city, you will find yourself right in the mix with clients, prospects, and competitors.
3. City Culture
Aside from its flourishing tech scene, the city of Atlanta has many other things to offer, such as music, food, and sports. The city has a rich history, with many museums and historical landmarks such as the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park. The city is also home to many beautiful parks, such as Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Botanical Garden, which can offer a great escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. Additionally, Atlanta is known for its diverse neighborhoods, each with its own unique character and vibe. From the trendy and upscale Buckhead to the artsy and eclectic Little Five Points, there is something for everyone in Atlanta. Many Perficient employees enjoy catching a live show on the weekends or catching an Atlanta United game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

As a Perficient employee, you have the unique opportunity to witness amazing partnerships firsthand, such as our partnership with the Atlanta United soccer team. One of the standouts of this partnership is the Coin Toss Kid opportunity. Atlanta United’s Coin Toss Kid provides a nominated child the chance to interact with players and flip the game coin to kick off a match. Opportunities like this give our team the chance to give back to the local Atlanta community, something we are very passionate about at Perficient.
Perficient has established many other noteworthy partnerships that colleagues enjoy, showcasing its commitment to excellence in various fields. The RioBotz team‘s collaboration with Perficient resulted in the creation of the Minotaur bot. Perficient’s partnerships with notable PGA and LPGA golfers, as well as successful teams like the St. Louis Cardinals and Dallas Mavericks, reflect the company’s dedication to fostering growth and achievement across all areas.
5. Community Engagement
Our colleagues at Perficient truly value giving back to the communities in which we live and work. When considering the number of colleagues our growing organization has, it was no surprise when we decided to develop our Perficient Giving Employee Resource Group (ERG). Earlier this year our Atlanta Giving ERG sponsored a dinner with members and staff of Extra Special People (ESP). Back in 2022, the Atlanta team partnered with CURE Childhood Cancer to give two incredible kids the chance to interact and get involved with their favorite soccer team, Atlanta United.
Most recently, our Atlanta office donated 250 pounds of food to Feeding America during Hunger Action Month (HAM), collecting the most out of any office in the country. In addition to holding a food drive, the team hosted a special event at the end of HAM to celebrate their collective efforts where colleagues who had donated at least five pounds of food got to pie a director of their choice in the face. A theme that rings true throughout all Perficient, not just our Atlanta office, is our love for giving back to our local community and getting involved.
At Perficient, we continually look for ways to champion and challenge our talented workforce with interesting projects for high-profile clients, encourage personal and professional growth through training and mentoring, and celebrate our people-oriented culture and the innovative ways they serve Perficient and the community.
