SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tradeshift, a global network and platform that connects buyers and suppliers, today announced that it has ranked as one of the top companies in the, “50 Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies to Work for” list.

The inaugural list is the culmination of a research collaboration between Battery Ventures, a global, technology-focused investment firm, and Glassdoor, a company review and jobs marketplace, and features larger private companies that are delivering innovation in the cloud, ensuring high work satisfaction, and earning high CEO approval ratings.

“We’re very excited to be included among a group of cloud startups that recognize that prioritizing the quality of work life for employees leads to ground-breaking ideas and solutions,” said Tradeshift CEO and Co-Founder, Christian Lanng. “At Tradeshift, we live by three simple rules: (1) One team, one mission; (2) Win for our users first; and, (3) Never stop challenging the status quo. The acknowledgment we’ve received from Battery Ventures and Glassdoor indicates that these values engage our employees and are paying off.”

To qualify for one of the top-50 spots, the startups had to be B2B-focused with 200 or more employees (as of July 2016), have raised funding in the last three years, and have 30 or more employee reviews on Glassdoor. Glassdoor also screened for reviews with the highest employee satisfaction ratings and looked at how employees rated their CEOs (although this did not have an impact on the ranking), and what they thought of their company’s future outlook. More on the methodology and findings can be found on Battery’s website.

“This list provides a window into which private, business-focused cloud companies are generating the most excitement among employees—one key proxy for company health, and part of the broader business trend we see today around transparency on the Internet,” said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in cloud investing. “We look forward to tracking these standouts as they mature, and to watching smaller, up-and-coming cloud startups make the list in future years.” Agrawal also serves on the board of Glassdoor.

Last year, Tradeshift was included in Mattermark’s list of top 100 cloud-based enterprise software companies ranked by total funding. The list was a ranking of enterprise software startups that have gained the greatest amount of funding since they were founded.

In June 2016, Tradeshift announced new and existing investors in its $75M series-D funding round, bringing the total funding for the company to nearly $200M.
