NORTH CANTON, Ohio – January 26, 2016 – Local software development company Squirrels LLC received a third-place ranking in Fortune Magazine’s list of Best Workplaces for Technology 2016. This selection comes one month after Fortune named Squirrels one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Camaraderie.
Squirrels was chosen from a selection of more than 150 tech companies in the U.S., including Google and Yelp. Fortune divided the list of winners into three categories based on company size. Squirrels is the only Ohio-based company recognized in the Best Small Workplaces in Tech category.
“Our employees enjoy a workplace experience that you don’t often find in Ohio or anywhere in the Midwest,” Squirrels co-founder Andrew Gould said. “We brought the West Coast tech culture to North Canton and we’d like to continue to nurture that.”
The Great Place to Work’s Recognition Program compiled this list utilizing feedback from 48,000 employees gathered through the Great Place to Work’s Trust Index Employee Survey. It takes into consideration career-development opportunities, risk-taking, work-life balance, compensation, recognition, transparency, camaraderie and more.
Squirrels leans heavily on Apple products, which stems from its roots in Apple development. Each employee is issued a new MacBook upon employment. As an added bonus, employees are provided subsidies to upgrade to the latest iPhone every year.
“Flex scheduling, summer holidays, company retreats, paid health insurance and sponsored lunches are just a few of the other perks we offer employees,” Gould said. “We’re constantly looking for new ways to reward our team members for their commitment to our company.”
Squirrels uses a wide range of the latest tech devices to conduct business. The Quality Assurance lab houses an abundant number of iMacs, Mac minis, laptops, Chromebooks, iOS devices, Android devices and more to test and ensure compatibility with the company’s screen-mirroring software.
