Come to Pega to challenge yourself on projects that touch millions of people every day. You’ll collaborate with some of the smartest people you’ll ever meet, both globally and sitting at the desk next to you.

We're passionate, fast-moving and completely committed to building the best product for our users. If you're energized by powerful technology, have a love of innovation, and want to make a profound impact on the future of how organizations use technology, give us a call.


Business rules are the practices, processes, and procedures that define how a company does business; they are an important asset that differentiates enterprises in the marketplace. Pegasystems' patented rules technology allows companies to aggregate their diverse business practices and lets business managers rapidly implement change across the enterprise and over the Web.

Blue-chip companies in financial services, healthcare, insurance, communications, and many other industries, turn to Pegasystems to streamline business processes, to quickly and easily adapt to changing market conditions, and to realize significant ROI.

Alan Trefler, Pegasystems' Founder, Chairman, and CEO, has guided the Company's technology vision. This vision has repeatedly positioned Pegasystems on the forefront of industry trends — often well before these trends have become widely accepted in the marketplace. Mr. Trefler's early experiences teaching computers how to play chess provide the intellectual foundation for his thinking on the importance of rules and automated decisioning. 

From best-of-breed rules-based exception-processing solutions in the 1980s to enterprise rules-based customer-service solutions for call centers in the 1990s to today's rules-based Pega BPM solutions for the extended enterprise, Pegasystems empowers the aggressive business strategies of many of the world's most dynamic organizations.

    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time (less than an year)


    I've only been at Pega for a few months, but I've already felt firsthand how much the company invests in its employees. Hard work pays off and is rewarded.

    Solid group of diverse, hardworking individuals. I love the fact that I get to work with teams from around the world.

    Good perks too. I get free parking near downtown Boston and on top of my regular vacation package I get 2 days off to use for voluteering/charity work.


    Growing pains here and there as we're expanding, but nothing out of the normal.

    I was contacted after giving them my resume a career fair. Had a 30 minute phone interview with a senior engineering manager. She gave me an overview of the program and the workplace environment, and then asked me some questions about Java (this was my language of choice), such as the difference between an abstract class and interface, what is a JVM.
