     “There’s something amazing when you’re working for a great team with great people. You inspire each other. When I see someone doing something awesome, I’m going to put my best foot forward.” ~Abel Mathew, CEO/Co-Founder

At Backtrace, our team matters to us. We’re working to create an environment that enables each person to grow with our company and bring their best selves to work every… most days (we’re human, bad days happen). We’re proud of the community we’ve built, and the quirky culture that’s been spawned. In our offices, we take puns, food critique, coffee, and custom emojis very seriously. If working hard and wordplaying hard is your jam, we’d love it if you’d come along on our adventure.
