In a recent Fortune survey on the best small and medium-sized workplaces in 2020, Ripple has emerged as one of the most sought-out workplaces. Conducted in the Bay Area of San Francisco, the survey aimed to unearth some of the best small and medium-scale workplaces. Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, stated that he is deeply humbled to be a member of the company's amazingly talented team.
Ripple is the only blockchain company on the list with 25th position. A review stated that the company's management is always transparent with workers on what fits right, and what does not. In addition to this, the employees are always honest with themselves, which is healthy and refreshing as they proceed to shift from startup to young company.
In early 2019, Fortune called Ripple as one of the top Bay Area firms to work for. Ripple, which aims to restrain the cross border payments industry, has significantly made progress since then by gaining 300 partners and an enormous fund worth $200 mln that resulted in its valuation to $10 bln.
Ripple now possesses 235 U.S. employees. Recently, it also partnered with the oldest bank in Thailand. However, it has lost some prominent team members in 2019, like Evan Schwartz, a genius behind the Interledger, which is a protocol that connects blockchain and other ledgers.
Fortune carried out an anonymous survey among 33,000 employees to discover best workplaces in the Bay Area while looking for key qualities like workforce makeup, leadership effectiveness, workplace culture, and other factors. Asana, a mobile application designer, took the first spot on 2020's Fortune list. A finance company Nerd Wallet has secured the third position in the Fortune's best workplaces in the Bay Area list. Also, Nerd Wallet offers an app and website that strives to help users in making decisions regarding personal finance.
