BloomReach Named One of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area

The San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal Honor Big Data Company for Its Workplace Excellence

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2012) - BloomReach, creators of the Big Data cloud marketing platform, today announced that it has been named one of the top ten "Best Places to Work" in the San Francisco Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. The award ranks companies based on employee survey responses to determine the best places to work in the Bay Area based on environment, practices, goals and values.

Founded in 2009, BloomReach is led by co-founders Raj De Datta, CEO, and Ashutosh Garg, CTO, who built a team comprised of some of the brightest minds in Big Data, machine learning, large scale systems science and search from companies like Google, Cisco and Facebook. BloomReach's ability to compete with larger, Fortune 100 companies in employee benefits, work-life balance, workplace culture and career opportunities continues to attract the industry's best talent. Its team of 70 employees has grown by 500% in the past 14 months alone and the company is projected to double in size by the end of year.

The San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal conducted an independent, third-party survey, of employees from more than 300 Bay Area companies in order to rank BloomReach in the #8 slot. Employees were asked to rate their company based on team effectiveness, alignment of goals, trust in coworkers, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, work engagement, and people practices. Company rankings were announced at the 2012 Best Places to Work in the Bay Area Awards reception, held on Thursday, April 19, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.

"Today's recognition by San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal reaffirms that our focus on creating a thriving workplace benefits both the business and an employee's personal career path," said Raj De Datta, CEO and co-founder of BloomReach. "This focus has resulted in a group of motivated, hard-working people whose dedication to innovation has propelled BloomReach into one of the most results-creating Big Data companies in the industry."
