At PactSafe, we have always taken company culture very seriously. You may have seen articles recently talking about how a flexible work policy is overrated and that kegerators are a sham when it comes to really building a culture. Sure, they aren't magic (though I’d never say that about free beer), but PactSafe’s flexible work policy is good for building team morale and company culture.
Contract cloning? Check. Viewing signers and activity by group? Check. Comments? Check. Gangs all here for release day! And per usual, our team has been working hard to bring you new and exciting features inside the app. Here's the scoop on each new feature:
I was selected by PactSafe to be part of the ultimate tech internship experience through Techpoint’s Xtern program this summer. I learned how to work on an agile team, build my own SDK for our API and more!
This blog has been more difficult to write than any paper I’ve been assigned at Rose-Hulman.

I hope this blog post does my time at this wonderful company justice. Well, here it goes…

It's the tension mounted between the legal team and the rest of the organization since the beginning of time -- and it'll exist long into the future. Or perhaps, it won't.
Gone are the days of mailing and remailing contracts, and we could not be more thrilled. Written contracts can often be time-consuming and complex, and honestly just a big pain. Luckily, eSignatures have come to save the day! Contracts don’t necessarily need the typical ink-to-paper form of signing anymore, yet some companies have not taken advantage of all that eSignatures and clickwraps have to offer. In this blog we will outline some contract-signing practices that have yet to completely fall to the wayside (but hopefully will soon).
Rarely do I get excited about building out a new integration. It’s not that I’m not up to the challenge, (because let’s be honest what self-respecting developer doesn’t get amped at building out a new feature!?), but the idea of having to dig through outdated documentation for an overly complex API that then requires three methods of authentication just to get in, well that just doesn’t sound like a fun afternoon.
