REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paxata, the pioneer and leader in empowering all business consumers to intelligently transform raw data into ready information instantaneously, today announced it has been named a winner of the 2017 Bay Area Best Places To Work, an awards program presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Paxata ranked 6th in the Small Business category and was officially honored on April 18th for creating an exceptional workplace that their employees value highly for the fifth year in a row.

“At Paxata, we have always maintained a values-based focus which begins by recognizing that our people are at the core of our success,” said Prakash Nanduri, Co-Founder and CEO of Paxata. “Our value-driven business culture played a key role in helping us to once again make the Best Places to Work list. I’m especially proud, because the rankings are determined by what our employees themselves report in an anonymous survey, and we have maintained that ranking as we’ve grown from about a dozen people five years ago to nearly 100 people today.”

2017 Bay Area Best Places to Work Award applicants were evaluated and ranked across five categories according to the number of Bay Area employees. The ranking found companies in the region whose employees rate them as the highest on such values as fun, collaborative culture, solid compensation and benefits offerings and other amenities as well as management practices.
