Ecommerce Technology Company Recognized As One of the Best Midsize Companies to Work For in Austin


Built In today announced that Bold Commerce was honored in its 2021 Best Places To Work Awards. The annual awards include companies of all sizes, from startups to the enterprise, in the eight largest tech markets and nationally. Just one year after opening its first U.S. office in Austin, Bold Commerce has been recognized as one of the Best Midsize Companies to Work For in the growing tech hub.

Bold Commerce works with omnichannel retailers like Vera Bradley, Harry Rosen and Staples Canada, as well as emerging DTC brands, such as Pharell Williams’ Humanrace and Pepsi’s Game Fuel, to power almost any checkout experience imaginable. Bold enables brands to own their commerce by going beyond their ecommerce platform capabilities. From customized checkouts and feature-rich subscriptions models to complex pricing and promotions, Bold is delivering high-converting transaction experiences and advancing retailers’ headless capabilities.

“We foster an environment that encourages creativity and innovation with an open and supportive workplace culture," said Chantal Grindle, Chief Human Resources Officer, Bold Commerce. "Expanding to Austin was a highlight for Bold this past year, and we are excited to continue to grow to our team here in 2021 and beyond."

Built In determines winners for Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and cultural programs. To reflect the attributes candidates are searching for on Built In today, this year’s program weighted criteria more heavily, like remote opportunities and programs for diversity, equity and inclusion.

“These companies raise the bar for cultural excellence and the ability to adapt to meet changing needs of employees," says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “The 2021 winners show a commitment not just to creating meaningful cultures but to delivering talent needs as they change in a dynamic landscape. We’re thrilled to extend our congratulations to the winners.”

Tech professionals rely on Built In’s Best Places to Work lists to discover employers that align with their preferences, passions and values. Since its inception three years ago, the award has expanded in reach, from online views of tens of thousands to just under 1 million views today.
