Today was a very historic day for Pinger.
It was the first ever PJ (that’s “pajama”) Day for our headquarters in San Jose, CA!

Things started out great:

But after lunch…

Must have been all those late nights making apps!

Yesterday, employees at Pinger Headquarters headed outside with some handy dandy Eclipse Shades to watch the transit of Venus.

 

 

 

 

 

Venus passed in front of the sun and said “hi!”  We all shouted back “hello!”  She’ll be back again in December 2117.

 

 

 

In retrospect, we should have let her know about our apps. Woulda made her think twice about taking that long trip again just to say “Hi”…

Today in the San Jose Mercury News:

Interview with Greg Woock, co-founder/CEO, Pinger

“Woock reckons Pinger is the seventh-largest data carrier in the country. And now he’s expanding into Europe, where a fragmented telecom industry has him predicting a dramatic ramp-up of last year’s $20 million in revenue.

In an interview, Woock — who was previously a top lieutenant to Sir Richard Branson — held forth on the future of his 60-person company and of the broader telecommunications industry…”

Today our Pinger employees from San Jose, CA are headed down to our Santa Barbara office for a meeting of the minds!

Wave if you see their bus pass you!

Pinger employees like to work hard and play hard, and this Friday was no exception. Everyone in the office took a break after work (and overcame their friggatriskaidekaphobia) to play some bocce!

Teams were selected at random from our prized Sharks hat, and competition was fierce. When inches count, tape measures were unholstered to see who was closest to the pallino (the little metal ball … it’s complicated.)

We’re pretty serious about our bocce, apparently.

Winners got trophies plus bragging rights, and everyone had a great (perhaps a bit rowdy) time.

Want to be part of our next adventure? We are hiring!
