Why Updater is One of Crain's Best Places to Work
Back in September, Updater was named one of Crain's Best Places to Work in NYC for the first time. And today, the official rankings are in! Updater is #3 on the list! Of course, we'd like to thank the academy, our families, our dogs, Crain's New York Business... But before we get ahead of ourselves, here are 7 reasons why Updater truly is one of the best places to work in NYC (or anywhere, really).
We have fun!
This is an easy one. No one has more fun than the Updater crew, whether we're teeing off at the Golf Club at Chelsea Piers...
... or touring (surprisingly) historic 34th Street.
Or simply donning onesies for fun.
We make every day special
Not only do we remember birthdays and anniversaries; we go big for them. Favorite treats, the birthday song... What we're saying is: If you like Arby's, we've got Arby's.
And if you like sweets, boy, we've got sweets.
We're growing the Updater team!
We've added some incredible new people to our roster in recent months. We've scaled our Success, Sales, and DevOps teams, and there's no end in sight! You can even read about new team members like Doug and Peter on the Updater blog. Steal their moving tips, learn what makes them tick, and more.
We love what we do (and we do it well!)
In the last year, we've signed hundreds of new clients, expanded our solutions, launched exciting pilot programs, and then some. And because we're great at what we do, our executives have been asked to speak at all major industry conferences.
For instance, at this year's NMHC OPTECH, our VP and Executive Director of Property Management, Ash, introduced the NMHC Launch Pad competition finalists. It's a competition we like to refer to as the Shark Tank of the property management industry. (We were also the big winner in 2015!)
We're dog-friendly... really dog-friendly
Need we say more?
We partner with amazing companies
We couldn't do all that we do without the many amazing companies that partner with us. From moving and relocation to property management to mortgage and beyond... It's clients like these that help motivate us to keep innovating and excelling.
Speaking of partners... We make giving back a priority
At Updater, giving back is in our DNA. That's why we partner with charitable organizations like industry nonprofit Move for Hunger. (And why Jenna, our Marketing Director, is on their board of directors!)
This season, we've teamed up with Move for Hunger for a holiday food drive. You can help us feed kids and families across the U.S. It's easy; simply donate here! Do a good deed in just a few clicks.
By now, you're probably chomping at the bit to join our team — what with the talk of dogs, fighting hunger, and helping transform the way people move. That's great because...
I'm the Digital Content Manager at Updater, meaning I make things look and sound good. My content specialties are renters and homeowners insurance, cloud technology, and all things moving! I eat pizza every Friday and I never buy a new iPhone until mine breaks.
