Since the company started in 2012, culture has been at the heart of Algolia's business. Today's recognition is a true testament to the team's commitment in building a workplace they can be proud of every day. The rankings evaluated employee reviews from companies with over 200 people, and recognized those with high levels of satisfaction, CEO approval ratings, and overall belief in the company's vision. Algolia received the following scores:

  • Overall Company Rating: 4.9; Glassdoor Average: 3.4
  • CEO Approval Rating: 100 percent; Glassdoor Average: 69 percent
  • Positive Business Outlook Rating: 100 percent; Glassdoor Average: 48 percent

"We're humbled and honored to be included in this year's list for the first time, but most of all, we're proud to see our entire team recognized for the part they play in creating a meaningful culture," said Nicolas Dessaigne, co-founder and CEO, Algolia. "We believe building a strong culture is just as important as building a strong product, and see it as a critical factor behind our growth. Our work environment is open, collaborative and designed to give our team ownership and freedom. At Algolia, innovation lies beyond convention, and we challenge our team to break some rules and make mistakes if it means they are creating, innovating and learning something new."

"Since we first partnered with Glassdoor to compile this list in 2016, the cloud has only grown in influence and market power," said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in cloud investing. "It was also significantly tougher to make the list this year, with companies requiring a higher Glassdoor rating to make the cut—showing that companies can't rest when it comes to focusing on culture and employee happiness."

This year's private-list cutoff was a rating of 4.4, compared to 4.1 on the prior list. Battery and Glassdoor also released a similar list of the 25 Highest-Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies to Work For.

As the team continues to double year-over-year across multiple continents, building a culture of ownership centered around its values—grit, trust, care, candor and humility—will be core to the company's growth. Algolia plans to hire over 180 new employees across all its offices in 2018, including in San Francisco, Paris, London, New York and Atlanta.

"Our position alongside cloud companies respected for their inspiring cultures is due to the team we've been able to attract, and we attribute that 100 percent to our culture. Culture is front and center when we consider any decision affecting the team and is non-negotiable when we think about how we operate," said Maryann Kongovi, VP of operations, Algolia. "As an international organization with offices in the U.S., France and the U.K., we work hard to ensure everyone feels welcome and accepted. We want every team member to feel comfortable speaking up, and challenging themselves and everyone at Algolia to be their best selves."

Neeraj Agrawal, Battery, will unveil the list and key findings at this week's CloudNY conference, an exclusive event for cloud founders and CEOs. To learn more about Algolia's values and to see all open positions, visit www.algolia.com/careers.
