    Cockroach Labs was named for resilience and survival. The last year has tested us all in unimaginable ways, and it was the strength and resilience of our team and our community that kept us afloat and propelled us forward.

    So it is an absolute honor that, after the year we’ve all had, we have been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021.

    The list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture. Inc. collected data from thousands of companies, and every company took part in an employee survey that covered management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list set an example that we all can learn from. We are humbled to be named alongside them.

    “The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”

    From the very beginning, our goal was to build a human-forward business where our employees can balance their careers with their personal lives. Over the last several years, we have challenged the status quo and built programs for better recruiting, more flexibility, better support, more opportunities in and out of the office, and fostered an environment where diversity of thought exists and is celebrated. We will continue to strive for an innovative and inclusive workplace for all.
