Keeper is pleased to announce that we have been named as one of Built In’s “2021 Best Places To Work”, ranking our company among some of the biggest names in tech. Specifically, Keeper has been honored as one of Chicago’s Best Midsize Companies to Work for in 2021.
The Built In Best Places to Work awards, which are named annually, include companies of all sizes, from startups to large enterprises, both nationally and in the eight largest tech markets. Highly skilled tech talent relies on Built In’s Best Places to Work lists to discover employers that align with their preferences, passions and values. Since the awards began three years ago, they have greatly expanded in reach, from online views of tens of thousands to just under one million views today.
Built In determines winners for Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data on compensation, benefits, and cultural programs, with rank determined by combining a company’s score in each of these categories. This year, based on data showing that tech professionals prefer employers who offer remote work opportunities and programs for diversity, equity, and inclusion, this year’s awards weighted that criteria more heavily.
Despite the global economic downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Keeper rapidly expanded in 2020, with global sales of our password security and encryption platform growing by triple digits. To keep up with demand, Keeper raised $60 million from equity firm Insight Partners in August, our company’s first round of outside capital since launching in 2011.
Having added another 120 team members in 2020, Keeper anticipates doubling our staff over the next year. We are aggressively recruiting for roles across our company, with a focus on engineering, software development, and sales. Additionally, we are examining the possibility of adding a fifth global office sometime in 2021, which will join our headquarters in Chicago and our additional offices in El Dorado, California, the Philippines, and Ireland.
