SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- InfoObjects Inc. of Santa Clara was named the No. 1 Best Place to Work in Silicon Valley by the San Francisco Business Times/Silicon Valley Business Journal - for the second year in a row.
"I am again grateful and honored that InfoObjects has been recognized by our precious employees," said InfoObjects CEO Rishi Yadav at the April 14 awards ceremony in San Francisco. "We have great people and take the best care of them in two important ways.
"First, we provide cutting-edge technical challenges to engage the most gifted engineers." Both Yadav and partner Sudhir Jangir, CTO, are highly technical and committed to attracting and keeping the very best people.
"We give our senior engineers and teams a lot of freedom at work. Everyone is encouraged to come up with suggestions on architecture, technology, activities or meals," said Sudhir Jangir, InfoObjects' CTO. "We credit our commitment to providing an excellent place to work with a challenging environment. We always remain on top of technology trends, which helps our clients as well as engineers who get to work on cutting-edge technologies. Engineers are evaluated on commitment, performance, and output rather than experience."
"Secondly, we provide the most supportive environment possible from financial rewards to perks and benefits, along with free in-house training in new technologies."
"Rishi loves to teach," said Mark Jansen, head of marketing for the IT services firm, "and he is a natural-born story teller. Add to that his free delegation philosophy, and he has empowered the team to accomplish huge things for a small company."
"I love to delegate," says Yadav. "I'm the opposite of a control freak."
"That's for sure," said Jansen. "When, in 2012, I said of one of our products that it needed a complete revamping before marketing, Rishi asked a few questions, thought for a moment, and said 'OK.' That was it, and we spent 2 1/2 months improving the product."
"We're like a big family here," says Helma Zargarian, Office Manager and Company Quarterback. "We celebrate every holiday together, have movie nights, picnics, and happy hours after work."
In the Business Times/Business Journal Best Places to Work competition, employees from hundreds of Bay Area companies participated in an independent, third-party survey, ranking their employers' work culture, management practices, compensation and benefits, trust in the company's leaders, and feeling valued.
Headquartered in Santa Clara and with a software development center in Jaipur, India, InfoObjects combines US-based consulting with engineering teams in India to meet the exploding demand for responsive, high-quality software development services. The company also provides intensive training in open Source Big Data and Spark technologies for corporate clients and individuals.
