Member spotlight: PGA of America
PGA of America is 105 years old, yet its approach to technology and digital products is progressive. The company operates 100% in the cloud (AWS and Google), zero trust, Yubikeys, no corporate network, no data centers, no VPNs, and no Active Directory across its 50 office locations. Even its use of Workday is unconventional. Tech at major golf tournaments only lasts a few weeks before moving on to the next event, but includes scoring, data feeds for TV / digital, public wifi, miles of fiber, private LTE, digital ticketing, spectator apps, IPTV, scoreboards, hospitality CRM, and more. Consumer digital products on pga.com and mobile are cloud native, leveraging the latest open source technologies and infrastructure as code.
PGA welcomes software engineers, designers, and product managers who want to build impactful products at scale with a beloved brand and passionate customers. It's an elite team that's always on the lookout for fun people who love to play. https://careers.pgahq.com
