100 Best Companies to Work For 2015: Perks
June 26, 2015
Special Award for Perks: TUNE
Though tech startups are common in Seattle, the founders of Tune have created something original. The mobile marketing firm specializes in connecting advertisers and mobile platforms while providing attribution analytics to both. Tunes founders twin brothers Lucas and Lee Brown are as passionate about their employees as they are about their business itself. That passion has led to a workplace deserving of special recognition for its perks.
Tune actually has a stand-alone team that runs the companys Perks Program. Some highlights: twice-daily meals prepared by an on-site culinary team; a dog-friendly office; a company suite at home Sounders FC matches; and regular team-building retreats throughout the year, including the annual Geeks in the Woods event featuring coding challenges, live music, guest speakers and more.
When it comes to corporate culture, the Perks Program has paid vast dividends. The people build the company, says Oki Ludiro, a software engineer at Tune. As a developer, I feel grateful to work with a group of people that are smart, fun and easy to talk to. You feel like you are a part of the team and are building the company and product together.
