Outbrain Paris Gets Awarded as a Great Startup to Work For
We already knew it, but now it’s official…
Outbrain Paris is a great place to work!
Located near the beautiful Avenue des Champs Elysées, Outbrain was among 103 companies ranked for the 2016 “Happy at Work” award by Meilleures-entreprises.com within the startup category (>25 employees).
Selection criteria, weighted by obtaining a score above 3.5/5, included a ‘happiness at work’ scale on areas such as professional development, work environment, motivation and management, wage and recognition, pride, and pleasure.
Additionally, more than 60% of employees needed to recommend the company to a friend with over 50% of the workforce participating in the survey.
Companies such as A Little Market and Deezer participated alongside Outbrain in the survey where we took 9th place in a tie with 10 Vins with a score of 4.56 out of 5.
In a world where Google serves Sushi for lunch every day and Facebook does your washing for you, the bar is set pretty high.
No, we don’t have Vibe Managers like Heroku to choose which pillows are best for our employees or even a zen napping room such as Impact Hub Oakland’s where employees can meditate, but those things are way too materialistic and so Silicon Valley ‘15.
Outbrain specializes in creating a ‘real’ culture with true connections between real people who are driven to accomplish one main goal: helping people discover content that they can trust to be interesting, relevant, and timely for them.
Having recently started at Outbrain myself, I immediately noticed the tight-knit community and friendly peers who went out of their way to help one another. The Outbrain Paris crew frequently refers to their team as hardworking, loyal and team spirited.
Our weekly lunches, free drinks, and regular social events do help, but it’s the office’s friendly vibe and demeanor that has put us on the path to winning this award.
All without the help of Vibe Managers. I wonder how we did it?
So, merci Outbrain Paris for making the office such a great place to work.
