Rustici Staff dressed smartly for Fancy Friday

Suit Up! Fancy Fridays are Here

Corporate America looks forward to Friday because it’s close to the weekend and they usually get to dress casually. Not us. We love every day at work, and we get to wear what we want all the time. But we also like to have fun,…

The Final Spot

I’m thrilled that, for the sixth year in a row, we have been recognized as one of Nashville’s Best Places to Work. We’ve received a lot of awards over the years, but this is the one that I care most about, that award that recognizes…

Who are you people?

Last week we had our first quarterly quell of 2014. It was one of the most interesting weeks I’ve had in a very long time––and that’s saying a lot (I live an eccentric life). Generally when people think of company-wide meetings, their first instinct is…

Who we are, not what we make…

I believe that we create such great products because we have an amazing company, not the other way around. We talk a lot about SCORM, the Tin Can API, and the products that we make. We know these things well, and we enjoy talking to…

A virtual tour of the office kitchen

An office says a lot about a company.

We don’t get a lot of visitors around the office. Our family members come by, and occasionally a customer will fly in to meet us in person, but that’s about it. This is mostly due to the nature of our business. Most of our customers…

Rustici Software Welcomes Stephanie Fletcher and Zach Lowry

Take that, TLC!

When I was growing up, I had a friend who had a HUGE family. She was 1 of 12 brothers and sisters and I was super jealous of her. You see, I was stuck smack dab in the middle of two brothers, and having more…

Jena Garrett as a unit of measurement on the delight-o-meter

My love letter to our support team…

If you’ve been keeping up with us over the years, you know we don’t take ourselves too seriously. For example, we have a running contest I’ll call “who can spit this (insert fruit pit/seed) the farthest”. Yep, we do a lot of silly things around…

It’s official…Jenafits are here.

I like to take care of people. It's in my blood. I like to think that being "southern" has a lot to do with it, but most likely it comes from watching my mom take care of everyone I knew growing up. It just comes…
