Monte Carlo Named One of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area for 2022
I’m honored to share that Monte Carlo was just named a Best Place to Work in the Bay Area for 2022 by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal, placing 6th in the small business category. This recognition is especially meaningful to our leadership team because the results are based directly on employee feedback, collected anonymously from a third-party researcher.
What our employees have to say
A few highlights from our survey feedback:
- 88% of employees reported high levels of engagement—meaning they have favorable opinions of the company, act as advocates, and intend to stay. Especially after the covid-related stress of 2021 and a period of high growth, where we grew from 5 employees to over 100, it’s incredibly encouraging to know that our team remains committed and engaged in our success.
- 93% of employees agreed that “the senior leaders of the organization value people as their most important resource.” This is absolutely true, and I’m so glad to know that our team members feel the appreciation and respect our leaders have for their work.
- 100% of women agreed with the statement “I see professional growth and career development opportunities for myself in this organization.” As a female CEO, I know the challenges of succeeding as a woman in tech firsthand, so creating an environment that fosters professional growth for every employee has been a constant priority.
We couldn’t be prouder to be included among amazing companies like Salesforce, Dremio, and Sigma Computing on this list, and are so grateful for every member of our team who makes Monte Carlo a wonderful place to work.
How we invest in employee experience
Building a company culture that employees love doesn’t happen by accident. We’ve been intentional about making Monte Carlo a great place to work from day one, by focusing on a few key areas: our remote-first culture and remaining a values-driven company as we grow.
We invested in building a remote-first company culture since our founding in 2019, and that decision has served us well throughout the pandemic.
For example, one of our first hires was a remote “Culture Manager” responsible for building and scaling our company culture and fostering a sense of community among our remote-first employees. Our Culture Manager is tasked with hosting both regional and virtual events, helping functional teams bond by planning offsites, and handling a robust onboarding program that includes a buddy system for new employees.
We are remote-first, but not remote-only. We maintain two offices in the Bay Area (San Francisco and Santa Cruz), as well as offices in New York City, Dublin, Ireland, and Tel Aviv, Israel, and encourage global employees to travel to our headquarters with generous travel benefits for employees and families.
We keep our values at the center of everything we do, including: Beat the Odds, Customer Obsession, Measure in Minutes, and Have Fun.
Last year, we put Customer Obsession and Have Fun front and center by hosting a weeklong hackathon, where teams from not only Engineering and Product but Marketing, Sales, and Customer Support came together to brainstorm and build proofs of concept of innovative features that would add value for our customers. One team, inspired by a customer desire, developed a prototype of field-level lineage for our data observability platform—which ended up moving into production and becoming one of our most popular features.

We’re doing exciting work pioneering a new category: data observability, which makes it possible for companies to holistically understand and proactively improve the health and quality of their data. And we have a lot of fun doing it.
