Today at DataFox, we're excited to share that we've been named one of Inc. Magazine's Best Workplaces for 2018, the publication's third annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. This award results from an in-depth evaluation of thousands of private companies based in the United States. Of the many exceptional workplaces, we're honored to have been selected amongst the top 300 companies.
This award is particularly meaningful as it's based on feedback from the people who matter most: our employees. Our DataFox team shared feedback on our culture and values, our approach to career growth, our leadership team and our benefits, and their responses showed a deep level of engagement.
