Perforce Software announced it was recently named one of the Bay Area's "Best Places to Work" by the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal and the San Francisco Business Times. Perforce placed #10 in the 50 to 100-employee category, determined by the number of its Bay Area employees.
"We are very pleased Perforce has been recognized for the second year in a row as a great place to work," said Christopher Seiwald, founder of Perforce Software.

Our remarkable team of people is the heart of Perforce and our success."
