Cotap Named One of the Best Places to Work in San Francisco

The San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal Rank Cotap in the Top 10 Best Small Companies to Work for in the Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - April 15, 2015) - Cotap, an enterprise mobile messaging service, today announced it has been recognized by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work in the San Francisco Bay Area. Companies on the list are recognized for having exceptional workplaces that are highly valued by their employees, as well as their prioritization of practices, culture and values that drive employee engagement.

"We founded Cotap to transform work communication, which is no easy task. To accomplish our goals, we hire smart, talented people who are not afraid of taking risks or pushing the envelope. And in such a competitive hiring market, it's important that we not only offer all the perks you'd expect from a Silicon Valley startup, but we hold true to our core values of openness, being bold, and a relentless focus on solving problems that have the biggest impact. High standards is our best job perk and why we are able to retain top talent," said Jim Patterson, co-founder and CEO, Cotap. 

The Best Places to Work company assessment and resulting rankings are based on a multiple choice survey taken by employees that provide feedback in categories such as: employee engagement, communication strategies, management effectiveness, trust in leadership, compensation, benefits, training and recognition. Responses are then tabulated by research firm Quantum Workplace.

Cotap was honored for its commitment to openness and transparency across the organization -- from monthly company town halls where all employees are encouraged to speak up with questions and ideas to weekly engineering tech talks -- every voice in the company is heard. Employees are also encouraged to learn from people they wouldn't normally work with via cross-functional teams, and even at the lunch tables where members of all teams sit daily and exchange ideas and updates.

Cotap is looking for smart, inspired people to join its rapidly growing team. Learn more about working at Cotap and view open positions at
