Introduction to the company

Pricefx’s main domain is development of pricing and price optimization cloud software. It is a "software as a service" company. Pricefx places a high priority on transparent and fair relationships with customers. It helps customers automate the price setting process, analyze historical data and search for patterns in data, which enables them to change their prices in real time and monitor data on sales and competitors.

Pricefx was founded in 2011 in Germany and during its first five years all 15 employees worked remotely. In 2016 the first Pricefx branch office was founded in Prague and it is still the company’s headquarters today. Gradually the company established more branch offices, in Hradec Králové, Ostrava, Chicago and Brisbane. Today Pricefx has more than 400 employees. But the company’s principles - freedom, trust, teamwork and the option of working from home at any time - remain the same. And that’s what Pricefx employees appreciate most of all about the company.

For backend the company uses open source technology, Java, Linux and on the frontend React, Redux and JavaScript. The company uses agile methodology and SCRUM.

Who Pricefx is looking for

Independent, smart people who know how to take responsibility for their work fit in well at Pricefx. People who don’t need to be micro-managed or constantly checked. Pricefx values initiative and new ideas. In exchange you’ll get real flexibility in your job – if you e.g. discover over time that you are more interested in a different area, transferring within the company is not a problem. The company also has branch offices in Australia and Chicago, not only because the company language is English.

What’s good to know

Pricefx has a horizontal organizational structure and implementing new changes does not take long in the company. Employees like to spend a lot of time together at various corporate events, such as movie nights, regular breakfasts, sporting events and office football breaks. Even the CEO sometimes helps out and spends the entire morning cooking lunch for new employees to get to know them and to properly welcome them into the company.

Every year the company holds a big party to celebrate its birthday and employees from around the world fly in to Prague to take part. Pricefx also holds regular monthly PragueJS JavaScript meetings for developers, which keeps them in constant contact with the IT community and on top of what’s going on.
