About Pivvit:

Pivvit’s SaaS platform is changing e-commerce and business automation.  Compared to other platforms, Pivvit enables customers to increase sales — usually by 40% or more.

Pivvit is led by experienced Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.  Prior to being an Associate Partner with McKinsey & Company, our CEO worked as the first employee at Xtime, a Silicon Valley enterprise software company acquired for $300M.  Our CTO coded the real-time dispatch system for Uber and served as their de facto CTO until they grew to 400 employees.  Our advisory board comprises former executives from Google, Yahoo, AOL, early advisors to PayPal, eLance, Google, a former Venture Capitalist, and a Professor of Entrepreneurship at Stanford.

Pivvit is uniquely organized in small cross-functional teams giving our developers direct access to senior leaders and client champions with very little time lost in meetings or administrative red tape.  We use an agile development process that combines Lean operations, Kanban, and Lean Startup methodologies to push code to production daily while avoiding rework.
