Martech startup is recognized as the #3 best small company for remote workers in inaugural global ranking by Quartz.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 9, 2021 -- Octane AI, the pioneer zero-party data marketing platform, was announced yesterday as one of the honorees on Quartz's first-ever global ranking of the Best Companies for Remote Workers. The program honors 54 companies providing outstanding benefits and work culture for remote employees around the world and across various industries.
"We are honored to have been selected by Quartz as a top 3 company for remote workers! When we created Octane AI in 2016 with the premise of being a fully remote company, we wanted to provide a different experience and flexibility for our employees, and this award just makes us proud of the strong culture we have built since then," said Matt Schlicht, Octane AI CEO and Co-Founder. "We are excited to keep pushing the limits of what is possible when designing a company around not only growth, and sustainability, but in enabling the entire team to have no commute, spend more time with their family, and be happier and more fulfilled in their lives."
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, work from home was uncommon and seen with skepticism by many employers. Octane AI was one of the early-adopters of remote working, investing in building a successful and prosperous remote environment since its founding in 2016. Today, remote and distributed workplaces have become a global movement, with seven in 10 white-collar employees working remotely according to a Gallup poll.
"The future of remote work hinges on how adaptive and innovative companies are willing to be," said Quartz executive editor Heather Landy. "That's why Quartz's first-ever global list of the best companies for remote workers is so important. It showcases who is already leading the way—across every time zone. These are the companies that are making it easy for employees to work from anywhere, encouraging them to get away from work when they need to, and offering great perks and practices for remote workers so they can do it all."
The new recognition as a Quartz Best Small Company for Remote Workers only strengthens the company's claim as one of the most promising startups in the world, which earlier this year was also featured in Fortune's Best Small & Medium Workplaces list and awarded by Shopify as the Best Storefront App. The all-remote company employing team members in over 12 countries is hiring in various areas.

Quartz has covered the remote revolution from its slow, early stages to the extraordinary events of 2020. The team at Quartz envisions a future where jobs are as mobile as the workers who fill them, where creating a productive and welcoming environment for remote staff is a business priority, and where real career growth is untethered from proximity to a particular office building. Quartz's Best Companies for Remote Workers was launched in 2021 to recognize the companies that are already building this future. The global ranking is based on employee surveys conducted by the Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work.
