Optera named Best Place to Work by Outside Magazine

November 9, 2022

We’re so pleased to share that Optera has been recognized as one of Outside Magazine’s 2022 Best Places to Work, ranking in the top 25 among 50 companies on the magazine’s annual list of best places to work.

The designation was based on a two-part survey to understand each workplace’s policies, practices, philosophy, benefits, and employee makeup, as well as an employee survey to understand the personal experience of working at the organization.

“It’s an honor to be recognized alongside these other incredible companies,” says Tim Weiss, CEO of Optera. “We’ve been intentional about building a workplace culture rooted in respect, personal growth, and a shared mission. I’m proud of our team for upholding these values and setting an example for others.”

“The companies deemed Outside’s Best Places to Work showcase desirable benefits, philosophies, and workplace culture that attract some of the top talent across the country,” shared Abby Wise, Digital Managing Director at Outside. “Especially following the many challenges of the pandemic, it’s really a badge of honor to appear on this list.”
