Great Teams & Culture Build Exceptional Connected Products

It is our mission to help engineering leaders through the complex journey of building connected products while cultivating and sharing our company culture.

Why Culture Matters

The journey of product development is a road filled with technical and cultural hurdles that teams and organizations will face. Having the right company culture will drive a team of engineers to challenge the status quo and ignite the passion to rise up to the challenge. This drives us to intentionally build our culture to be the case study of successful engineering culture and share it with the world.

Empowering Leaders

Punch Through started in 2009 with the belief that we aren’t defined by our title or education and with the right motivation and environment, we can make anything happen. Our founder lived this value when he left the passion-stifling classrooms of his formal education to build an organization that fosters the joy of engineering, a place where we can relive that feeling of sitting in front of a pile of Legos on our living room floor.

Through the lens of engineering, Punch Through has set out to promote curiosity, creativity, empathy, and positive change in the world by un-blocking potential in the engineering leaders of today and tomorrow. We are intentionally building a culture that is for engineers, by engineers. 

We are building the leaders of tomorrow, who measure their success by those that they lead, not by their title or status. We are a community of people that are connected around what that pile of legos represents. We are building leaders who will move on from Punch Through to have a greater impact in the world by carrying out our vision.

We would love to work together to build a better world.

Team

We’re just a group of people brought together by our love of tinkering and problem-solving. We all come from different backgrounds and have different skillsets. Since so many of our projects require the full gamut of our services, we work hand-in-hand across all channels to accomplish goals. Collaboration, listening, learning, and teaching are a common thread throughout all of our projects, and when we work together, we win together.
