Stoplight Earns Recognition in Built In’s Austin Best Places to Work and Austin Best Small Companies to Work For in 2022
January 5, 2022 AUSTIN, Texas -- Stoplight, the API design company, was recognized today by Built In in their 2022 Best Places To Work Awards. Specifically, Stoplight earned a place on the Austin Best Places to Work and Austin Best Small Companies to Work for in 2022. The annual awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in the eight largest tech markets across the U.S.
“It’s an honor to be a part of Built In’s Best Places to Work Austin list since our headquarters is in Austin. I truly believe in our people and in the culture we’ve built together,” shares Stoplight CEO Steve Rodda. “Especially as we move to a global, remote-first setup, it’s thrilling to see that what makes Stoplight great transcends an office location.”
These two 2022 workplace recognitions are a welcome addition to the 2021 record year of growth and honors for Stoplight. In addition to multiple user-driven recognitions last year, Stoplight doubled in employee size and was recognized as an Austin A-List winner as well. In February of 2021, Stoplight secured another $11M round of follow-on Series A funding co-led by Next Coast Ventures and Bill Wood Ventures.

These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s tech professionals seek.”
