Optiver Austin recognized as a 2023 Best Place to Work by Built In

Built In, an online community for technology professionals, announced that Optiver’s Austin location was honored in its Best Places to Work Awards for 2023. Specifically, Optiver earned a place on the Best Midsize Places to Work in Austin. The annual award program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employees as well as companies in large tech markets across the US.

“Just two years after opening Optiver Austin’s doors, we established our Delta One team’s headquarters and started the buildout of our new, state-of-the-art engineering lab.  Our team has grown significantly and will only continue to do so. This award only exemplifies our potential and what’s in store for years to come.”

Scott Richardson, Manager Partner, Optiver Austin

Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation and benefits. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.

“It’s my honor to congratulate this year’s Best Places to Work winners. These exemplary companies understand their people are their most valuable assets, and they’ve stepped up to meet the modern professional’s new expectations, including the desire to work for companies that deliver purpose, growth and inclusion. These winners set the stage for a human-centered future of work, and we can’t wait to see that future unfold.”

Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In
