Databento named an Inc. Magazine Best Workplace 2023
Inc. Magazine is a well-established publication that delivers practical knowledge and resources to entrepreneurs. Each year they recognize companies from over 30 different industries that excel in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or a virtual facility.
After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 591 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization's benefits were also audited to determine the overall score and ranking.
"Being named to Best Workplaces is an honor that only a small fraction of companies have been able to claim," says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. "Proving to the world that you're a magnet for talent and have a culture that keeps teams engaged, productive, and proud to come to work is a truly remarkable achievement."
What makes Databento the best workplace?
Creating a work environment that's engaging and productive—while being fully remote and globally distributed—can be challenging. But to us, it's worth it. By fostering an empowering (and challenging) environment that puts our employees first, we've attracted extraordinary talent from around the world.
We value transparency throughout the company and take a bottom-up approach, empowering our employees to share their thoughts and opinions on any and all decisions.
Jack Culhane, senior software engineer at Databento, speaks to the unique culture of openness and inclusion, "Everyone on the team has a voice, and everyone’s opinion is heard. Regardless of whether the decision is big or small or is in one’s area of expertise if someone has something to contribute, they're encouraged to do so. Information is widely shared across the entire company, so everyone has an idea of what other teams are working on, the challenges they are facing."
Bianca Woo, frontend engineer at Databento, shares, “I love how my team is very detail-oriented when we are discussing and implementing changes to the UI. I enjoy that everyone's opinions about the product are heard and considered, regardless of which team they're part of. It's also very motivating that we take user feedback seriously and have a strong sense of urgency to create the best experience for them."
