Hard, novel and interesting problems to solve; great people, cool robots and a handful of dogs -- it's all good stuff.

My favorite part about working at Piaggio Fast Forward is the people. They create an environment at PFF that makes it a place I enjoy spending time. After all, PFF internally stands for Pretty Fun Friends. That’s what you’ll get working at PFF.
