This tech startup develops cloud-based operations software for retail clients. Employees receive a $3,000 to build their own dream workspace and enjoy a highly flexible work schedule. They are encouraged to take off as much time as they need as long as they continue to meet goals—meaning they can work from home or the beach—and are told “we know that personal matters don’t just happen outside of work hours.” Read the Great Place to Work review and Fortune’s story on the company.
