That's right. We're the best.
At a dinner last night hosted by NJBiz, the Best Places to Work in NJ were formally announced. All 50 companies on the list were invited to attend -- the top 25 large companies, and the top 25 mid-sized companies.
As co-founder Dan Lynn tells it, he was happy to not be number 25 in our category. When numbers 25-12 had be announced, and we were nearing the top 10, Dan thought, "please let us *not* be number 11."
Then, as the top five approached, Dan thought, "I don't want to be number 6. "
The top 5 were read off, down to number two. (Guess what Dan was thinking then...)
As the number two company in our category approached the podium, Dan could have sworn he saw an "aw, shucks" gesture. "No one remembers the number two," thought Dan."
Joel Macaluso leaned over to Dan and said, "Maybe they forgot to include us."
We just couldn't believe that, in our first year of eligibility, we could possibly be the top company to work for in New Jersey.
But we were. Are.
Congrats to eveyrone on our team -- especially co-founders Dan Lynn and Scott Goldthwaite.
I think we all already knew that we were working for the best company in NJ -- but it's especially nice for these two to be recognized for their commitment to making DigitalGrit great for us -- and our clients.
