BOSTON, MA (April 25, 2019) ­– Drift, the world’s leading conversational marketing platform, today announced that it was recognized as one of the 50 Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies To Work For in a list released by Battery Ventures, a global investment firm and cloud investor, with data specifically provided by Glassdoor*, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites. The list highlights 50 privately held companies — all business-to-business, cloud-computing companies — where employees report the highest levels of satisfaction at work, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor.

The distinction placed Drift at number 42. Drift’s ratings on Glassdoor include:

  • An overall company rating of 4.1; the broader average across Glassdoor is 3.4.
  • Drift CEO, David Cancel, has earned an 82 percent approval rating on Glassdoor, compared to an average of 69 percent for all approximately 900,000 employers on the site.
  • And, the company has an 87 percent positive business-outlook rating, whereas the Glassdoor average is 49 percent.

A Glassdoor economic research study, as well as other third party studies, show that companies with high employee satisfaction often post stronger financial performance.

“The private companies on this list have not only scaled their products, teams and business functions—but they’ve managed to scale culture,” said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in investing. “We view these rankings as a key indicator of company health and longevity, and we hope all companies on this list view it as an honor to be included.”  

“We are working hard to create a company where our employees thrive and are excited to come to work every day,” said David Cancel, founder and CEO of Drift. “We are thrilled to be named alongside companies like Slack, Zoom and Outreach.”

Other recent accolades for Drift include: the Forbes Cloud 100, LinkedIn’s Top 50 Startups, Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures, Comparably’s Best Place to Work, Comparably’s Best Place for Diversity, Comparably’s Best Company Outlook and New England Venture Capital Association’s SaaS Company of the Year.
