“As we support our existing employees and fill available positions, we strive to ensure our people feel respected, valued, seen and heard in their roles,” said Joaquin Fonte, senior vice president of human resources at Everspring. “This includes providing strong benefits and compensation, flexibility around remote and hybrid working, opportunities for learning and professional development, and DEI initiatives at every level of the organization.”

Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work, now in its fourth year, based on an algorithm that uses company data on compensation, benefits and companywide programing. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the algorithm also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.

“It is my honor to extend congratulations to the 2022 Best Places to Work winners,” says Sheridan Orr, chief marketing officer at Built In. “This year saw a record number of entrants—and the past two years fundamentally changed what tech professionals want from work. These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s tech professionals seek.”
