Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits, and companywide programming.

“To be recognized by Built In affirms what we’ve been doing,” says Jenny Farver, co-CEO. “Our commitment to living our values — humanity, education and ownership — has never changed, however, we continue to recommit ourselves to what our team needs, our business goals and who we want to be as a company.”

Congrats goes to the entire 8th Light team for this recognition.
