(www.fiksu.com), developer of the award-winning Fiksu for Mobile Apps Marketing Platform that combines advanced optimization technology with the world's largest mobile app media inventory, one of the 2012 "Top Places to Work" in Massachusetts. This is the Boston Globe's fifth year of honoring the state's most beloved workplaces based on surveys of the people who know best – the employees themselves.
This distinguished honor recognizes Fiksu's achievements in creating a progressive and positive work environment based on workplace practices in compensation, leadership, appreciation, career opportunities and management. This is the second workplace award bestowed upon the company recently, as Fiksu was also named one of the Boston Business Journal's "Best Places to Work" in 2012.
"It's an exciting time for Fiksu – we're a growing company in market full of opportunities, with solutions that are in demand by some of the leading brands and game publishers," said Micah Adler, CEO, Fiksu.

"I'm surrounded by people who are passionate about what they do for a living," said Christian Galvin, Enterprise Sales Director, Americas, "and there's an immediate satisfaction in seeing our clients climb up the app store ranks and hit their marketing goals."
"When we launched in 2008 during the Great Recession, we wondered if employers would lose focus on keeping their employees happy," Boston Globe Business Editor Shirley Leung said. "But businesses have continued to make strides in employee appreciation and opportunities. With more than 300 companies surveyed this year, we saw our highest participation rate to date."
The Boston Globe's 2012 Top Places to Work survey was conducted by WorkPlace Dynamics, specialists in employee engagement and retention. The Globe invited 1,586 employers to participate in the survey; 304 organizations employing a total of 210,000 people completed the process. Completed surveys were received from 81,907 individuals.
