An Insider's view of Piaggio Fast Forward

What are some social events your company does?

Given the times, most of our team is now working remotely. We’ve taken this period as an opportunity to explore and get creative with virtual events. We host informal morning coffees, and end of week happy hours. These have become a great way to reconnect with work friends, and to introduce and welcome new hires to the team.


Office Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

In order to keep everything running smoothly here at PFF, proper inter-team communication is essential. Slack is our bread and butter, and we use it for everything. Personally though, I tend to prefer a face-to-face conversation with someone in front of a whiteboard, especially when complex abstract concepts are the topic of discussion.


Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Since joining PFF, I've been able to test and development my skills as an analyst while learning new things as I go. Everyone at PFF is very helpful and shares the desire to spread their knowledge in their fields. I've been able to be very hands-on with many different cross functional partners and apply my skills to projects across the company.


Data Analyst

What is your vision for the company?

My vision is of a world in which vehicles like Piaggio Fast Forward’s gita® enable people of all ages and abilities to move further, faster, and more enjoyably. In the present era of AI, autonomy and ubiquitous networks, vehicles that promote walkability, human interaction and off-screen exploration will be fundamental to our sense of well-being.


Chief Vision Officer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've had the opportunity to grow with gita®. Early on, I applied my knowledge of design for manufacturing to facilitate the transition from concept to consumer product. By instilling manufacturability from an early stage I have worked to setup the foundation for a successful product. Now as the Lead Manufacturing Engineer I oversee production.
