Company Recognized for Providing Employees the Support They Need to Thrive
SEATTLE – February 15, 2019 – Yapta, the leading provider of airfare and hotel price tracking services, today announced it has been named one of this year’s 100 Best Places to Work in Seattle by Built In Seattle, an online community for Seattle startups and tech companies. The list recognizes Seattle businesses that go out of their way to provide employees with the support – both financial and non-financial – they need to thrive.
Yapta was distinguished in two categories, including the “Small Companies” category and the “Overall” category. Among small companies, those with less than 100 employees, Yapta ranked 15th – and overall, it placed 75th. Built In’s Best Places to Work list rates companies algorithmically based on compensation and employer benefits information identified in its database. Compensation and benefits are weighted equally.
“Our outstanding employees, our cohesiveness, and collaboration across teams are what set us apart and make Yapta a very special work environment,” said James Filsinger, President and CEO of Yapta. “We are very appreciative for the recognition from Built In Seattle and we’re thrilled to be ranked among the city’s best workplaces.”
