Smartsheet is a ‘Best Place to Work’ in Seattle and Boston

by Katie Bouwkamp

Since going public last year, we’ve had one of the best performing tech IPOs in 2018, were recognized by Deloitte as one of the fastest growing tech companies in North America (for the fourth year in a row), and continue to be a leader in the collaborative work management space supporting more than 80,000 customers.

This momentum is only possible and sustainable with an engaged and empowered team, connected through a common purpose: To empower everyone to improve how they work.

That’s why, this week, we were honored to be recognized by Seattle Business Magazine as one of ‘Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For’ and by Boston Business Journal as a ‘Best Place to Work’ in the Greater Boston area. This comes on the heels of Glassdoor and Battery Ventures recognizing Smartsheet as one of the ‘25 Highest Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies To Work For.’

Our team is especially proud of these recent awards since they’re based exclusively on anonymous employee feedback collected across categories like corporate culture, executive leadership, benefits, rewards/recognition, professional development, workplace environment, and more.

What Makes Smartsheet a Best Workplace?

At Smartsheet, we believe that outstanding company culture and employee experience extends far deeper than fancy perks.

Instead, it’s curated from having a common purpose, set of values, and opportunities to grow individually and collectively. As we’ve scaled from 13 to now over 1,300 employees, we continue to be intentional about creating a workplace that is truly extraordinary.

But you don’t have to take my word for it - we asked employees in Bellevue and Boston what makes Smartsheet a best workplace. Here’s what they had to say:

1) Value-Driven Culture

“Working at Smartsheet, you quickly realize that everyone is smart and driven. That being said, you also find a culture built on honesty, authenticity, and support. Employees are trained and coached to succeed, which translates into providing unparalleled support for our customers."

— Innocent Mugyenzi, Customer Support Specialist

“Smartsheet is an incredible organization. The values of honesty and integrity are quite clear in how employees engage with one another. Smartsheet feels like a family working towards one single goal together. The people are incredibly smart, warm and hard working.”

James Melcer, Commercial Sales Manager


2) Opportunity to Make an Impact

“I wake up excited to come into work and make a positive impact for my team and for my customers.  It is incredible to be surrounded by so many bright, friendly, and driven individuals. My co-workers inspire me daily to learn more, do more, and achieve more.”

Livingston Chaffee, Strategic Sales Representative

“I sincerely appreciate the culture, which I find to be collaborative and transparent, and I feel confident in leadership. I feel a vastness of opportunity to contribute in a variety of ways, and I constantly feel that my voice and ideas are valued. I've had the chance to make and recommend some fairly substantial changes to our codebases, and have felt supported throughout my career growth.”

Nick Fuerstenberg, Software Development Engineer II


3) Supportive Teams and Leadership

“Smartsheet is by far the best company I have worked for. The leadership team is transparent and engaged with the company at many levels. Employees are collaborative and motivated to grow Smartsheet together.”

Becky Simon, Demand Generation Manager

“Smartsheet empowers its employees to raise the bar in their individual work and work across a team. Their supporting, collaborative culture allows you to be challenged at work but backed by a team that has your best interest in mind...and a team that likes to have fun along the way!”

Scott Parmely, Senior Customer Success Manager


4) Pride in Innovation

“My ideas matter here, and I feel supported. I am encouraged to grow professionally, and have the opportunity to expand my skills. Working for a company that prides itself - and delivers - on collaboration and innovation is exciting and fulfilling. Plus, they have a great selection of food and beverages to enjoy at the office!”

Suzanne White, Content Developer

“Working at Smartsheet is challenging, but rewarding. Change happens quickly, innovation is encouraged, and we are constantly improving our product and how we serve our customers.”

Olivia Spokoiny, Technical Enablement Manager


5) Growth Potential

“We have many audacious goals, and inquisitive, helpful, passionate, kind people. If you have a strong desire to change something for the better, the opportunity is yours to take. That's what I like about working at Smartsheet. It's not easy, but if you're willing, you will have the opportunity to push your own boundaries and grow in was you'll be proud of.”

Jenna Shimek, Technical Project Manager II

“As a builder and problem solver by nature, I continually seek new opportunities to help improve the business and customer experience. I started as a Customer Success Manager with Smartsheet, then became the first Product Trainer, and have now moved to Product Marketing to focus on education at scale. Smartsheet has given me the opportunity to grow with the organization and continually tackle new challenges and drive impact.”

Erin Harlan, Senior Product Marketing Manager
