The 500-person team we've built over the past four years reflects not only how aggressively our organization has grown and scaled—even in the midst of a pandemic—but also how values like diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as trust and humility resonate with team members.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) December 15, 2021
Harness, the only end-to-end platform for complete software delivery, was recognized as one of the 25 Highest-Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies To Work For in a list released by Battery Ventures, a global investment firm and cloud investor, with data specifically provided by Glassdoor*, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies.

Harness achieved an overall company rating of 4.45 in the rankings. The broader average across Glassdoor is 3.7.

This is the fifth year Battery has issued a version of its highest-rated cloud companies list, along with a related ranking of the 25 Highest-Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies To Work For. The rankings—which this year come as many companies continue to face workplace challenges associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, including remote and hybrid work—highlight the global trend of businesses increasingly turning to the cloud to run critical technology systems and software, instead of using on-premise systems.
“While the pandemic has accelerated the businesses of many cloud companies—whose products often help fuel digital transformation—many cloud CEOs are still grappling with how to build great corporate cultures, hire the best employees and retain them in an incredibly fast-changing and unpredictable business environment,” said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery Ventures general partner who specializes in cloud investing. “The companies on this list should feel proud of their success building positive cultures and promoting employee satisfaction, which often translates into financial success. They really are modeling best practices for other organizations across the economy.”
“We're humbled to have earned a spot in the Battery/Glassdoor highest-rated cloud companies list,” said Luan Lam-Chen, chief people officer at Harness. “The 500-person team we've built over the past four years reflects not only how aggressively our organization has grown and scaled—even in the midst of a pandemic—but also how values like diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as trust and humility resonate with team members.”
Glassdoor noted that employees at these highly rated companies commonly mention in online reviews that they enjoy working for mission-driven companies with strong and unique company cultures; employers that promote transparency; and companies with experienced senior leaders who regularly and clearly communicate with employees.
