SolidFire Named a Top 100 Best Place to Work by Outside Magazine
In this month’s issue of Outside magazine, SolidFire was listed as one of the Best Places to Work in 2014. Ranking #36, SolidFire is among the top 100 companies nationwide committed to valuing productivity in combination with living bigger, better lives.
Outside gives this recognition annually to companies that help its employees strike the ideal balance between work and play. Those on the list went through a year-long vetting process overseen by Outside’s independent research partner.
Here is the exciting break-down:
- 28 of the top 100 companies are headquartered in colorful Colorado. Our state continues to dominate the best places to work results.
- While the majority of top companies are in travel, recreation and fitness industries, 23 out of 100 are in software and technology. Awesome!
To break it down even more, SolidFire nabbed the #1 spot in the Rocky Mountain Region for a medium-sized company in the software and technology sector … and is the only company headquartered out of Boulder, Colorado. Wicked cool!
At SolidFire, we aren’t just revolutionizing storage systems; we’re advancing the way the world uses the cloud. But the setting in which we do it can’t be matched. We’re lucky enough to be smackdab in downtown Boulder, Colorado, at the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills. World-famous hiking, biking and climbing routes right outside our front doors.
On top of the free perks nature herself provides, SolidFire employees benefit from bottomless healthy snacks, 100% covered health insurance, flexible paid time off, no dress code (just wear something), an Alternative Transportation Incentive Program and possibly most importantly, a culture of active lifestyles, community participation and employees who are nothing short of brilliant.
Fun facts about SolidFire:
- We are now 270 employees strong in seven countries and expanding
- Last week, SolidFire closed an $82 million Series D round of funding, bringing its total funding to $150 million. That’s more than any Colorado tech startup since 2005!
It is SolidFire’s exceptional talent that drives our game-changing storage technologies and market success. And we’re looking to add to it! SolidFire is hiring 50+ employees by year-end, and will only take on more after that. Positions range from Sales Account Executives, Systems Engineers, Software Engineers, Quality Engineers, Technical Support Engineers, Web Developers, Channel Marketing Reps, Marketing positions and more.
