When you spend so much time working, you should probably like what you do, right? That’s where Punch Through comes in. We’re a community of engineers and problem solvers that encourage each other to experiment and learn, and while sharing our collective expertise. If you pride yourself on continuous growth, are good at what you do, and have an interest in spending some time with people who feel the same way, take a look at our open positions.


We care about each other, the products we work on, and empowering ourselves and others through learning. We’re focused on humble collaboration and candor, creativity, adaptability, accountability, ethical decision-making, and most of all, teaching & learning from each other and our clients. Subscribing to these values is arguably more essential to our accomplishments than our technical proficiency alone.


With offices in Minneapolis and San Francisco, we’ve always got plenty of room for small talk about the weather. Both locations are within walking distance of phenomenal lunch choices, in the heart of thriving tech communities. Standing desks, multi-monitor setups, and all the hardware and software you need to get the job done are at your disposal. Oh yeah, there might also be a dog in the office from time to time.


We’re a multi-disciplinary team with people who have very different skill sets, but what brings us together is that we’re all tinkerers and problem solvers at heart. With so many of our projects requiring the full gamut of our services, software engineers regularly work hand in hand with hardware engineers; app development with business development. With such a considerable variation of skill sets on our team, it’s critical that we can not only work with one another but to learn from one another.


Few things are as professionally frustrating as feeling like your career is stagnating. By working with such a broad range of clients and industries, there’s a constant stream of new problems to solve, new technologies to explore, and new relationships to be made.


All of our projects start with a client relationship, and when they’re happy, we’re happy. We encourage all of our team members to be involved with our clients so that we can ask the right questions at the right time.



Do you have a real passion for engineering and product development? Do you like the idea of checking your ego at the door, the same as your teammates, then focusing on the task at hand? Are you as driven by the opportunity to create high-quality solutions as you are by completing a project?

If your answer to all of those questions is yes—without a moment of hesitation—then we are looking for an experienced individual like you to join our Minneapolis team in an embedded software engineering position.
