IDG’s Computerworld announces Datto, a preferred provider of hybrid cloud-based backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and Intelligent Business Continuity (IBC) solutions, as a 2014 Best Places to Work in IT – one of 100 top organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation. Organizations will be included in coverage in Computerworld along with results from the 21st annual Best Places to Work in IT survey.
“Being recognized as the No. 10 best IT place to work among small organizations, by a leading IT organization like Computerworld, is a tremendous honor for Datto,” stated Austin McChord, Datto Founder and CEO. “Last year, we made a strategic move to shift our technical support department to 24/7, 365 days a year to service our Partners’ needs. The decision has proven to be a great one for the company and our Partners.”
Headquartered in Norwalk, CT, Datto is one of the fastest growing technology firms in the country. Additional locations include offices in Rochester, NY, Toronto, Canada, Reading, United Kingdom, and Sydney, Australia, as well as a build facility in Monroe, CT. With over 300 global employees, Datto boasts 53% of its workforce in the technical, development and engineering departments. The company has plans to hire another minimum 75 globally before the end of the year.
“We pride ourselves in delivering fast, knowledgeable and efficient support to our global Partners,” says Victor Mathieu, Datto Vice President of Technical Support. “A large amount of our business focus is on educating our staff and equipping them for any and all scenarios that Partners encounter. So receiving such an honor is a testament to our hard work ethic and passion for what we do and who we are as an organization.”
With a fast-paced, energetic and fresh-thinking atmosphere, Datto goes above and beyond to ensure a supportive and pleasant work experience. The company benefits packages are generous including 100% healthcare coverage for employees and a 401k plan with matching opportunities. Additional perks include weekly free lunch Fridays, blow-out company parties, slushie machines, tech gifts and, on average, each Datto employee has 3 monitors at their desk – among others.
“Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year’s Best Places to Work in IT list,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in their own futures by investing in their employees.”
