50 Best Private Cloud Companies to Work For

 

BOSTON, MA and MILL VALLEY, CA — Battery Ventures, a venture capital firm that backs cloud companies, and Glassdoor, a recruiting marketplace, have partnered to reveal the 50 Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies To Work For. As more critical tech infrastructure systems and software are delivered through the cloud, these companies represent those where employees report the highest levels of satisfaction at work, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor.

No. 1 on the list is Asana, based in San Francisco. 60% of the companies on the list are located in California. Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz is CEO of Asana.

The highest ranked companies — all larger, privately held firms with 200 or more employees — deliver a broad range of business services, from team-collaboration software to IT automation to technology that helps companies recruit new employees, design better products and bolster cybersecurity. The report also includes data on whether employees approve or disapprove of their companies’ CEOs and gauges their view on how their company’s business will perform in the next six months (though these additional data points did not impact the overall company ratings or rankings).

“This list provides a window into which private, business-focused cloud companies are generating the most excitement among employees — one key proxy for company health, and part of the broader business trend we see today around transparency on the Internet,” said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in cloud investing. “We look forward to tracking these standouts as they mature and to watching smaller, up-and-coming cloud startups make the list in future years.” Agrawal also serves on the board of Glassdoor.

Agrawal called cloud computing “one of the mega-trends in the technology ecosystem” and a key driver for technology M&A in recent years. And with only a fraction of all software now delivered via the cloud, the cloud market is poised to grow significantly, he said.

For reporting simplicity, the company ratings below are rounded to the nearest tenth of a point, though actual calculations extend beyond the thousandth to determine rank. The ratings are based on a five-point scale, with 1.0 denoting “very dissatisfied,” 3.0 indicating “OK” and 5.0 signaling “very satisfied.”
