We are excited to announce that SiteLock has been named one of the 2018 Top Companies to Work for in Arizona by azcentral.com! This is the second consecutive year SiteLock has been recognized as a top company and even more notable, we ranked #30 in our category based on employee survey results and for creating a culture that our employees love to be a part of.
Founded in 2008, SiteLock helps small business owners protect their websites from cyberattacks with affordable, industry-leading technology. Like many tech start-ups, SiteLock began with humble beginnings, specifically in a game room with computers on pool tables and only a few employees protecting a handful of websites. Today, SiteLock is headquartered in a 50,000 square foot office in Scottsdale Arizona, boasts over 240 employees, and protects over 12 million websites globally.
2018 was a milestone year for SiteLock, as the company celebrated its official 10-year anniversary in May! This impressive achievement was celebrated over the course of two weeks and included a special commemorative t-shirt for all employees, SiteLock branded cupcakes, a pancake breakfast made by the leadership team, and a variety of fun games leading up to the big day!
This is just one example of the kind of spirit and pride that make SiteLock unique. Step into our offices, and you’ll see that our culture is what really makes SiteLock stand out from other companies. Much of our atmosphere and day-to-day happenings are defined by The SiteLock Way, a unique set of values that set the standard for how we do business. These values help foster a positive work environment that drives collaboration and performance. Through open communication and a focus on having fun, we empower all departments to work together for the common goal of delivering exceptional value and service to our customers.
“We are honored to be included once again on azcentral.com’s list of Top Companies to Work for in Arizona,” said Neill Feather, CEO and president of SiteLock. “Over the past 10 years we’ve grown from just a handful of employees to over 240 globally. During this time, we’ve worked hard to create a workplace that embodies our unique, high performance culture where our employees can thrive. As the company continues to grow, employee satisfaction will always remain a top priority. We are constantly striving for new ways to recognize the dedication and efforts of our team, ensuring they feel supported in their careers and enjoy coming to work every day.”
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Here’s a closer look at why SiteLock is a top company…
At SiteLock, we believe in putting people first and have worked hard to create a corporate culture that offers transparency and encourages employees to have a voice. Our open-door policy creates a positive work environment and gives employees the freedom to share ideas and challenge the status quo – meaning employees enjoy coming to work every day. Not only are employees encouraged to take initiative, they are celebrated for their hard work – like with this awesome saguaro cactus trophy!
Building Careers, Not Jobs
Dubbed the “Silicon Desert,” the Phoenix metro area is a growing community of technology companies. At SiteLock, we are passionate about attracting and retaining great talent. Our employees are our biggest asset and the backbone of our success. Through career advancement programs, company funded trainings, educational opportunities and executive team mentorship, employees have the opportunity to build fulfilling, long-term careers.
Work Hard, Play Hard
In addition to the great work culture, employees have access to many wonderful perks! This includes a generous health and benefits plan, free on-site gym and free monthly chair massages, free health coach training sessions, free breakfast on Mondays, and lunch on Fridays. SiteLock also hosts company sponsored activities throughout the year and boasts a new game room equipped with a ping pong table and video games. SiteLock even sponsors employees to partake in local running races throughout the year, like Pat’s Run. In fact, we were recently recognized as one of the Healthiest Employers in Phoenix.
Employees are also encouraged to give back to our communities and inspire the next generation of technology experts. In 2015, SiteLock established the Digital Kids Fund to help local schools in the Phoenix, AZ and Jacksonville, FL areas fund STEM-based projects. In 2017, we teamed up with DonorsChoose.org for a total donation of $60k and included an employee gift card program. Every SiteLock employee was given a $25 gift card to support a STEM-related project in the Phoenix and Jacksonville areas. In total, our donation supported 234 projects benefitting 30,952 students at 184 schools!
In the past ten years we have been consistently recognized for our technology innovation in the Phoenix metro area, nationally, and internationally. But what makes us especially unique is the culture we create for our employees. This highly collaborative and fun workplace with a “people-first” mentality are just a few things that make SiteLock a great place to work. Cheers to the next ten years!
