Alluxio Recognized As A Forbes Best Startup Employer Of 2023


Alluxio, the developer of the open source data platform that simplifies the management of large-scale analytics and AI/ML applications, has announced its inclusion as one of Forbes’ “Best Startup Employers” of 2023. Alluxio placed 142 on Forbes’ list done in conjunction with Statista Inc. ranking the 500 best growing companies displaying excellence across employer reputation, employee satisfaction and headcount growth.

The Best Startup Employers list is the fourth such ranking done between Forbes and Statista, examining the best performing startups and identifying the most innovative and best startups to work for. Companies considered within the evaluation were all headquartered in the U.S. and founded between the years of 2013 and 2020, employing at least 50 employees while exhibiting a startup structure, which excludes spin-offs of large corporations without a significant amount of external funding.

The analysis considered more than 7 million data points measuring employer reputation, employee satisfaction, and growth. To assess employer reputation, Statista searched articles, blogs and social media posts regarding each employer for specific phrases such as “corporate culture” and “employee engagement,” and used text analysis to assess those as positive, negative or neutral.

Statista assessed employee satisfaction by evaluating online reviews. Growth was evaluated by examining the organizations’ website traffic and head counts over a two-year period. The final list ranked the top 500 employers.
