CloudBolt Recognized as One of Forbes’ Best Startup Employers 2020


Enterprise cloud management leader places in the top 15% among the 500 organizations featured

North Bethesda, MD – March 17, 2020 – CloudBolt Software, the enterprise cloud management platform leader, today announced it has been selected as part of Forbes’ inaugural list of America’s Best Startup Employers of 2020. CloudBolt placed #68 among the 500 featured companies.

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to narrow down a list of over 10,000 company considerations, and shortlist 2,500 U.S. businesses with at least 50 employees. This shortlist of candidates was evaluated on three key criteria: employer reputation, employee satisfaction, and company growth. CloudBolt was selected as one of only 500 companies to earn this distinction as a Best Startup Employer, meeting all three of these criteria.

CloudBolt’s top startup employer honor continues the company’s recognition as a great place to work, following its recent award as a 2019 Best and Brightest Company to Work for in the Nation, as well as being named one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Management and Migration Companies compiled by CRN.

The honor also comes on the heels of CloudBolt’s momentum into 2020 of 50% year-over-year growth in customer orders, after significant investments in product, channel development, and executive leadership. Additionally, CloudBolt has seen 80% year-over-year growth in employee headcount, opened new offices opened in Boston and London, and recently hired its VP of Sales for EMEA to accelerate international growth.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Best Startup Employer in Forbes’ inaugural list,” said Brian Kelly, chief executive officer of CloudBolt. “To be selected out of thousands of companies considered is special. All of the credit goes to our amazing employees who are driving us forward as the leading enterprise hybrid cloud management provider. As we grow in headcount and expand into new geographies, we’re committed to continuing to provide an empowering work environment that fosters even more collaboration and creativity.”
