Today, we're thrilled to announce that Forbes, in collaboration with Statista, has named Highnote as one of America's Best Startup Employers for 2024. The recognition confirms what we’ve all come to experience here at Highnote for quite some time: we have an amazing team, and that team has cultivated an amazing place to work.

An intentional part of our strategy at Highnote was hiring the very best the payments industry had to offer. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of fintech platforms available today, and while our technology and the platform we’ve built are innovative and differentiating, we knew what would truly set us apart was the quality of our team. We also knew that by bringing these talented people together in one place, we’d open up an environment where everyone could be inspired to do their very best work.

The America's Best Startup Employers ranking for 2024 assessed startups' performance as employers using specific KPIs. To be considered, companies had to be U.S.-based, established between 2014 and 2021, employing at least 50 people, and retaining a startup structure. Drawing from over 7 million data points, the evaluation narrowed down 20,000 companies to just 3,000 for detailed analysis, focusing on employer reputation, employee satisfaction, and growth.

  • Employer Reputation: Relevant workplace aspects and search terms, such as employee engagement, company/corporate culture, company strategy, etc., were defined and tested.

  • Employee Satisfaction: Topics involving retention, compensation and benefits, workplace flexibility, diversity, and inclusivity, etc. were evaluated

  • Growth: Data regarding website traffic, headcount growth, headcount total, job openings, etc. were analyzed.

This achievement reflects the collective effort and dedication of our teams. Special recognition goes to our HR staff, who have been instrumental in building and maintaining Highnote’s now award-winning culture. However, this achievement also honors the shared hard work of all our Highnote teams – since every person contributes to our overall success. We salute our engineers' relentless pursuit of technological excellence, our operations team's impeccable efficiency, and our sales team's skill in attracting innovative clients, drives us to deliver our best. Every contribution has been pivotal.

Highnote is moving fast, and we have no plans to slow down. In just the past year, we’ve launched our consumer credit capability, broadened our simulated test environments, and extended our flexible funding account structures. We’ve also managed to grow volume on our platform by 8,307 percent, increase our number of signed customer programs by 60 percent, and add 1.1 million lines of code. We’ve accomplished a lot -- but are not even close to where we believe we can go. We’re thankful to everyone who has joined us and believed in us on this journey, and we can’t wait to show you what’s in store next.

Congratulations to the whole Highnote team for making us such a spectacular place to work!
