MMW learned ahead of the weekend that Leanplum has been recognized as a winner of the 2017 Bay Area Best Places to Work, placing third in the Small Companies category — the highest ranked technology company.
If you’re not familiar, this awards program is presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal, based on surveys of company employees.
Award applicants were evaluated and ranked across five categories, based on employee ratings of company performance for values such as fun, collaborative culture, compensation, benefits, and management practices.
A leader in mobile marketing, Leanplum’s investment in culture and focus on fun is embodied in five core values: lead humbly, skip politics, push innovation, be a doer, and show gratitude.
“In such a competitive job market, companies need to focus as much, if not more, on talent retention as they do on technology development,” said Momchil Kyurkchiev, Leanplum’s Co-Founder and CEO. “At Leanplum, being recognized as one of the Bay Area’s Best Places to Work is proof that investing in a kind and humble company culture is valued by top talent. In Silicon Valley, companies often resign themselves to having a revolving door of employees, but we are very proud to have low attrition.”
