I am honored to announce today that the Business Intelligence Group has awarded Valimail a Best Places to Work award.
The organization’s award recognizes “companies that are actively working to improve their own performance through efforts to challenge employees in environments that make work fun and engaging.” As part of the process, the Business Intelligence Group administered an employee survey, and I was especially proud of the results and to learn that 100% of our employees participated. That’s the kind of participation and dedication that we strive to cultivate every day at Valimail.
The results were humbling: People who work here feel they are doing meaningful work, they understand the company’s mission and believe in it, they have immense respect for their peers, and they are happy with their jobs.
I asked Business Intelligence Group to tell me why they selected us.
“After analyzing the employee survey data, it was clear that this is a special company to work for,” Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of Business Intelligence Group, told me. “The numbers tell a clear story: Valimail values its employees and vice versa. It was an easy call to recognize Valimail with this award!”
I am proud of this award because it’s a reflection of the values that Peter Goldstein and I strove to instill in Valimail when we started the company three years ago. We constantly keep in mind the three pillars of our culture: We are action-oriented, ownership-driven, and authentic/optimistic. The result: Valimail has become a place where passionate and ambitious people work to advance a common mission every day and where we take pride in our work.
If you’ve seen the news from earlier this week about our $25M series B funding, it will come as no surprise to hear that we are hiring — rapidly. We currently have more than 20 open positions, in engineering, marketing, sales, customer success, and more. And there will be more openings soon.
We are looking for talented, passionate individuals who want to join a team that is making a real difference in the way the world communicates — and who want to join forces with a company that truly is one of the best places to work. If that’s you, we want to hear from you.
