Code42 Named “100 Best Companies to Work For” and “2014 Community Impact Award” Winner by Minnesota Business Magazine

Code42, developers of award-winning, endpoint data protection and management solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today announced it won two awards from Minnesota Business Magazine, recognizing the company’s exemplary work environment and commitment to creating and keeping jobs in Minnesota.

Code42 was recognized as one of the 2014 “100 Best Companies to Work For,” celebrating Minnesota organizations that set the standard for employee well-being. The awards, now in their third year, assess nominees through an independent research group employing various research techniques—including an anonymous employee satisfaction survey—to determine which Minnesota companies excel in work environment, employee benefits and overall employee happiness.

In addition, the company received the “2014 Community Impact Award,” recognizing local companies of all sizes for giving back to the community. Code42 won the employment category for providing and purposefully keeping jobs in Minnesota. At the awards ceremony held on February 27, Code42 also received recognition for boosting entrepreneurship and technology skills in the state and going beyond “Minnesota Nice” to make a difference in the community.

Code42’s employee base has grown a staggering 2,000 percent since 2009, expanding from fewer than 20 employees to more than 400 today.

“Minnesota is on par with the best tech talent in the country, and great tech talent deserves a world-class environment in which to create,” said Matthew Dornquast, co-founder and chief executive officer of Code42. “Success comes to those companies that fully realize the most precious resource in an IP-based economy is people. We’re fortunate to have the best people, so our goal is simple: make Code42 so extraordinary, they’ll never want to work anyplace else.”

Code42 champions numerous efforts to ensure Minnesota continues to evolve as a tech-friendly haven for technical entrepreneurs. The company fosters networking and community building through tech-based associations and event sponsorships, such as the Minnesota High Tech Association and Mobile March Twin Cities. The company also mentors local startups and hosts numerous technology user group meetings, including:

  • Girls in Tech Minneapolis/St. Paul, which focuses on collaboration, promotion, growth and success of women in the technology industry.
  • CoderDojo Twin Cities, which helps children and young adults ages 8-17 learn programming at no cost.
  • Mobile Twin Cities, a group of technology, business and development enthusiasts meeting to discuss trends and software on all mobile platforms.

The two Minnesota Business Magazine awards are the latest in a series of recent accolades for Code42. The company was also named one of KMWorld’s “100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management” and one of “America’s Most Promising Companies” by Forbes.

A celebration for the “100 Best Companies to Work For” winners will take place on June 5 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre, with a complete list of winners featured in the June issue of Minnesota Business Magazine. The “2014 Community Impact Awards” winners are featured in the March issue of the magazine. Both are available online at www.minnesotabusiness.com.
