BOULDER, CO, January 11, 2023 — Today, Optera was honored in Built In’s 2023 Best Places To Work Awards, earning a place on its Best Places to Work in Colorado and Best Startups to Work for in Colorado lists. The annual awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to enterprise organizations, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in large tech markets across the U.S.

“We are proud to be recognized for our culture and for building an environment where our team members know they’re valued and are making an impact,” shares Nancy Schoemann, VP of Operations at Optera. “Our team’s shared commitment to our values allows for the kind of collaboration and innovation so crucial for our ability to thrive as a company.”

These wins follow Optera’s recognition in Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work in November 2022, where we ranked in the top 25 of 50 companies recognized for the year.

Built In determines the winners of its annual awards based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation and benefits. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.

“It’s my honor to congratulate this year’s Best Places to Work winners,” says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “These exemplary companies understand their people are their most valuable asset, and they’ve stepped up to meet the modern professional’s new expectations, including the desire to work for companies that deliver purpose, growth and inclusion. These winners set the stage for a human-centered future of work, and we can’t wait to see that future unfold.”
