BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 17, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- TeamSnap, used by 9 million people worldwide for organizing and communicating every aspect of team life, today announced that it has been selected by Outside Magazine as No. 16 on its list of 100 Best Places to Work 2015. Each year, Outside Magazine honors the Top 100 companies in America that raise the standards for work-life balance, company culture and employee benefits. This is the first time TeamSnap has been recognized by Outside.
TeamSnap was included in this list thanks to the company's progressive values, like flexible work hours, a remote workforce, the ability to work anywhere in the world, the offer of unlimited vacation time and the mission of judging employees on goals met rather than hours put in.
"We have employees who take breaks during the day to go to the gym, for a run or for a mountain bike ride," said Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Andrew Berkowitz, who doubles as TeamSnap's Minister of Culture. "One employee took a month off this summer to hike mountains in Peru. Our employees truly embody the Outside lifestyle, and our policies-or lack thereof-only serve to further our hobbies, passions and outdoor pursuits."
TeamSnap also offers employee perks like a wellness allowance to encourage a healthy lifestyle and an education allowance employees use to fortify career skills. Twice a year TeamSnap brings all 70 employees together in the mountains of Colorado to solve problems, connect in person, build team skills and give ample high fives.
"We're honored to be recognized by Outside Magazine," said TeamSnap Co-Founder and CEO Dave DuPont. "Fostering a culture that allows people to conquer projects in the way they see best with few constraints, while also giving them the flexibility to enjoy a true work-life balance, has resulted in a market-leading product used by 9 million people. Clearly, we're onto something, and it's not just our bikes."
TeamSnap is dedicated to taking the hassle out of managing, coaching and participating in team sports. Founded in 2009 by a couple of social scientists, an improv comedian and an oil field engineer, TeamSnap is now a team of 70 people working remotely around the United States but all driven by the mission to build a great product that any parent, coach, team manager, group organizer or sentient robot can pick up and use immediately. Nine million coaches, parents, team managers and players use TeamSnap's web and mobile apps to save their sanity and stay in the know through email, text and instant alerts.
