    The last year has been a year of growth for Cockroach Labs for many different reasons. We grew in size, maturity, and knowledge. The strength and resilience of our community continue to be the bond that keeps our fire ignited and propels us forward.

    So, it is an absolute honor that we have been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2023 for the third year in a row.

    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.

    From the very beginning, our goal was to build a space for our employees that inspired innovation while still encouraging employees to find their unique balance of personal and professional commitments.Over the last couple of years that became even more of a focus. We saw the disruption of normal office operations at the start of the pandemic as an opportunity to rethink workplace norms at a pivotal point in our company’s growth. Through a series of focus groups, surveys, and external research, our Workplace team created a new scalable distributed workplace model that provides flexibility while promoting opportunities to collaborate, connect, and retain a strong focus on productivity.

    Over the last year, We have been focused on creating “opportunities to collaborate” in the remote working environment, and so we began thinking of ways to maintain those opportunities and introduce new ones with a new hybrid working environment. Our multi-use Headquarters in New York perfectly suits Cockroach Labs' multifaceted approach to space and collaboration. Along with the New York headquarters, Cockroach Labs has office spaces in Toronto and San Francisco and London and has expanded to India and is looking into expanding to Austin, Texas.

    Over the last several years, we have challenged the status quo and built programs for better recruiting, 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. At Cockroach Labs, we are committed to ensuring everyone feels inspired to do their best work, whether that’s in the office or from home. Flexibility is key.
