Company included in Built In Boston’s 2021 Top 100 Best Places to Work

Perceptive Automata, the leading provider of human behavior understanding AI for machines, has been named one of the 100 Best Places To Work and 50 Best Small Companies To Work For in Boston by Built In. The annual awards include companies of all sizes - nationally and in the eight largest tech markets.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Boston,” said Bruce Reading, CEO at Perceptive Automata. “We take great pride in cultivating an inclusive work environment and culture that allows employees to thrive. Our success is rooted in our ability to inspire talented people to join, engage and grow within our company, by creating a supportive and engaging workplace for all.”

Fostering a comfortable work environment with a strong sense of community is a core component of the culture at Perceptive Automata. Perceptive Automata believes that people are at their best doing cognitively demanding and fulfilling work when they are rested and at ease. Allowing flexible working hours, taking group lunch breaks together (prior to the COVID-19 pandemic), and blowing off steam after hours with activities including virtual game nights and cocktail making classes help support our relaxed and community focused culture. Investing in each employee is a priority at Perceptive Automata. Team members have the opportunity to take supplementary courses, participate in academic conferences and industry workshops relevant to their role, fully funded by the company. Additionally, Perceptive Automata brings in different trainings on a quarterly basis for the entire team to help develop them throughout their career with the company.

This recognition from Built In follows a year of substantial growth and product innovation for Perceptive Automata, including receiving an AUVSI XCELLENCE Award and a 2020 World Changing Ideas Finalist award from Fast Company.

Built In determines winners for Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about benefits, cultural programs, and compensation. To reflect the attributes candidates are searching for on Built In today, this year’s program weighted criteria more heavily, like remote opportunities and programs for diversity, equity and inclusion.
