Fort Wayne Lands on National List of Best Small Workplaces With Squaremouth
FORT WAYNE, IN October 22, 2015 – Squaremouth, a leading travel insurance comparison website with software development headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has been named No. 20 on the 2015 list of Best Small Workplaces by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work.
With an open office space boasting an arcade, foosball, and free beer, plus an array of unique perks designed to motivate and reward staff, Squaremouth’s offbeat workplace culture injects a taste of Silicon Valley into downtown Fort Wayne. By building a culture around its people, Squaremouth has created a workplace that naturally promotes employee satisfaction.
The company offers its employees a number of sought-after benefits, including unlimited vacation time with a required 10 days off, quarterly bonuses, birthdays off with a $200 beer bonus, and occasional surprise gifts – most recently gifting employees with Apple Watches. While these perks make Squaremouth an appealing place to work, it is the strong camaraderie formed among colleagues that most staff cite as the best part of working at the company.
“Without a doubt my favorite part about working at Squaremouth is the team,” said Keith Thompson, a web developer for Squaremouth. “I enjoy being around the people I work with, and we challenge each other to be better at everything we do.”
The selected companies on the list were evaluated on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie, all of which are facilitated through Squaremouth’s culture and practices.
“Squaremouth is a great place to work because of the culture. We enforce the best practices, learn from each other, and promote teamwork. Squaremouth makes you want to come to work, to improve yourself, and to help others grow,” said Principal Over Engineer Gale Shafer. “On top of all of these excellent work-related values, we have fun. ‘Work hard, play hard’ has never been more meaningful.”
Squaremouth has regularly been recognized for its innovative workplace. The company was named one of the Best in Tech in Indiana in TechPoint’s 2015 Mira Awards. Earlier this year, Squaremouth Co-Founder Matt Outen was honored as CTO of the Year by the Indiana Business Journal. The company has also been recognized as one of America’s fastest growing companies by Inc. Magazine for the past three years.
