Pesto Press Kit
Pesto is the digitally native, authentically human workplace.
At Pesto, we envision a world where remote work is more effective and less lonely than the office, where interacting in a digital workplace is more powerful and convenient even when people happen to be physically collocated.
Today in Pesto, co-workers build a digital workplace together that’s authentically human. They customize their avatar in the workplace, which takes the place of video to be less fatiguing and more personable. Then, they create a variety of rooms – organized spaces for audio-first collaboration that include screenshare, video, games, or spatial features. Together, avatars and rooms empower teams to work together in ways that are more organic and immersive.

Peter Verillo, CEO @ Enhatch
During the pandemic, Pesto connected our team in a way that forever changed how we work together. This allowed us to almost triple in size this year, with team members across several time zones.
Katie Robinson, General Manager @ Sortify
Pesto IS our office. Our daily standups, development team meetings, and casual chats are here. We have Friday drinks here! We couldn’t operate without it.
James Deacon, Sales @ HiHello
Pesto allows me to connect with my colleagues in a fun environment that is far less draining (and far more fun) than video calls. My favourite feature is the LoFi room... tune in, zone out, and get s**t done!
Arber Muharemi, Full Stack Engineer @ FullStory
FullStory's Workflows team uses Pesto daily for collaborating on code. The platform serves as a way for the team to casually communicate like they're in the office, all from the comfort of their homes.
Shintaro Tsuji, CEO & Founder @ aiPass
Pesto not only builds our virtual office, but also supports communication for better team building.
Philip Rees, CTO @ Tidal Migrations
Pesto is great for connecting with teammates throughout the work day. We use it to easily start ad hoc discussions (or scheduled ones). It's personable and fun; everyone has their own custom avatar.
