Inc. Magazine Ranks Awake Among the “Best Workplaces” in the U.S. Again!

Less than a couple of weeks ago, Awake Security was crowned as one of the best places to work in the Bay Area and now we’re making a mark on a national level too. For the second year in a row, Inc. Magazine named Awake to its list of “Best Workplaces” from across the country!

To compile this year’s list, the people at Inc. and Quantum Workplace surveyed a record 370,000 people on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. These insights provided a basis for understanding how people across the country feel about their workplace and for identifying the companies that are building model environments for their teams and organization to succeed.

Awake deeply values each of its team members and through their feedback to the Inc. survey, it’s amazing to see just how much the team values our company too. The anonymized and shared results from these surveys is humbling especially when we look at the level of engagement among my colleagues.

As Inc. points out, people are far more likely to engage when they feel valued at their organization. Btw, the average engagement score was 73.5% across all companies and people surveyed! But at Awake we don’t believe in being just average! Our team is more than engaged. In fact, 100% of people at Awake told Inc. that they’re “engaged,” with a whopping 98% being highly engaged!

Here’s an anonymous comment that gets to the root of what makes Awake such a great place to work and build a career:

This company makes me feel like I am a part of something great. Like I am a part of something big that is poised to take it to the next level. I have industry leaders in their perspective fields that are willing to take time out of their day to help me with a question I have about the technology. I am paid a little bit more than the industry standard which made me feel like I was valued coming in the door. I love working here!

Big thanks to whoever made that comment and to our entire team. Having the honor of leading this team it means a lot to hear that 100% feel like the leaders value the team! We truly do and love being on your team!

We are Awake Security. We are challenging ourselves to solve big problems in security, data science and network processing!

If you want to feel more engaged and more challenged in your work, and are looking for a company that is giving back just as much as you’re putting in, there’s good news. We’re hiring. Check out to see if there’s an open position that’s right for you.
