Why do we work for Pragmateam?

What’s it like to work for Pragmateam? Who better to hear from than some of our awesome Pragmatists…

If we had to summarise Pragmateam, it would be “a bunch of talented software engineers that love helping clients deliver and learn while being a tight-knit family that is always supportive of one another
