Built In Boston 2021 Best Place to Work

Kelly Johnson

We’re excited to share the news that Built In has recognized Hydrow as a Best Place to Work in Boston! Announced January 7, 2021, the popular media and content outlet focused on uniting tech talent and the tech industry announced its annual list of award winners across the top tech cities in the U.S. 

Home to a number of tech giants, Hydrow HQ is in a competitive city, so you can only imagine how honored we are to have received this accolade in the category of Boston Best Midsize Companies to Work For. According to their site, “Best Places to Work recognizes top employers across the country, featuring companies who go above and beyond for their people, measuring benefits, support, culture programs and initiatives.”

The annual awards include companies of all sizes, from startups to enterprises, in the Nation’s eight largest tech markets - Austin, Boston, Chicago, Colorado, Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, and San Francisco. Built In determines winners for Best Places to Work based on an algorithm using company data about compensation, benefits and cultural programs. This year’s program weighted specific criteria more heavily, like remote opportunities and programs for diversity, equity, and inclusion - all areas Hydrow has focused heavily on as our company has grown, as well as the unique challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.   

“These companies raise the bar for cultural excellence and the ability to adapt to meet changing needs of employees," says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer of Built In. “The 2021 winners show a commitment not just to creating meaningful cultures but to delivering talent needs as they change in a dynamic landscape. We’re thrilled to extend our congratulations to the winners.”   

In 2020, Hydrow was also recognized as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Best Inventions and in 2019 we were named a Top Place to Work in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe. The work we do and the people we work with are equally important to us which is why we’re focused on innovative approaches to not just the technology behind our Live Outdoor Reality™ connected-fitness rowing machine but also in how we work together. It is with great pride that this is being recognized by our peers outside of the company, too.
