We would like to congratulate our fellow Central Coast client, The Trade Desk, for their inclusion on Outside Magazine’s “Best Places to Work in 2014” list. The Trade Desk, an advertising technology company HQ’ed in Ventura, CA, was selected for their ability to help their employees strike the ideal balance between work and play. They encourage employees to lead an active lifestyle, are eco-conscious and prioritize giving back to the community. This honor is affirmation that The Trade Desk approached their recent growth with the right focus on finding good people and retaining strong talent.”

To find the best places to work in the United States, Outside conducted a rigorous eight-month vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices and demographics of hundreds of companies, and went straight to the employees to hear about factors like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement. The Best Places to Work list represents the cream of the crop: companies who cultivate a comfortable and collaborative workplace, enable their employees to enjoy the great outdoors and take pride in their roles in the community and the environment.

We’re so proud to work alongside such a progressive company whose focus is in the right place. The Trade Desk has quickly come to the front of the pack among other demand-side peers on the scene by committing to its role as a pure buying tool, and as a technology-first organization that ships product weekly. The Trade Desk now has more than 10 offices in markets worldwide, and serves clients globally.

The secret to success is empowering employees to live bigger, better lives, and The Trade Desk offers this in abundance.
