StackCommerce recognized by the LA Business Journal for commitment to employee growth and satisfaction.

StackCommerce, the industry leader in native commerce solutions for publishers, has been named by the LA Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. This survey and recognition based program identifies the best employers in Los Angeles County based on eight categories: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communication, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training, Development and Resources, Pay and Benefits, and Overall Engagement.

Located a block from the Venice Beach boardwalk, StackCommerce is dedicated to providing an outstanding experience for its team of over 60 employees. Its unique culture-driven benefits package includes quarterly ‘hack days’, full-team off-site retreats, beach yoga, communal office surfboards, and even an annual cruise to Mexico. Other benefits include a fully-stocked kitchen, unlimited vacation, health and dental coverage, and monthly learning and book expense reimbursement among others.

“Our goal from the beginning was to create an atmosphere where every employee feels like an entrepreneur when they walk through the door. This mentality has not only helped us create a successful business, but a space that fuels creativity, innovation and collaboration. This award is a tribute to the team and the uniquely dynamic culture they’ve cultivated,” noted Founder and CEO Josh Payne.

Additional employee growth and retention programs include 360 peer reviews, quarterly pulse surveys, and a robust employee onboarding program, all of which promote transparency and open communication across teams. Employees are also encouraged to participate in a variety of company-sponsored beach clean-ups and fundraisers within the Venice Beach and Los Angeles communities.

“I’ve worked at a lot of companies in my career, but never have I experienced a team that gels this well. There is so much passion in this office, that you can’t help but be inspired to make a difference. We’re fundamentally changing the way publishers monetize during such a pivotal time in online media—and our mission isn’t just some floating words. We live it every day,” added Brandon Robbins, a Product Manager that joined StackCommerce three years ago.

StackCommerce is currently hiring across departments with multiple open positions in Sales, Business Development, Engineering and more. A list of open positions can be found at

The complete rankings will be published in the Los Angeles Business Journal on August 21st.
