It’s Official: SingleStore Is Named Among Best Places to Work 2023 by Glassdoor

SingleStore has been named to Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work 2023, earning a spot among the top 50 SMBs in the U.S. Here’s why our employees 💜 us.

People are our greatest asset — and at SingleStore, every role is critical to our long-term success. 

That’s why we’re committed to creating a workplace that balances a culture of care, compassion and concern, while simultaneously empowering our employees to do meaningful work that fuels their motivations and career growth.

No one can speak to their experience at SingleStore quite like our employees, which is why we’re incredibly honored to share that we’ve been named to Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work 2023 list, earning a spot among the top 50 small-to-medium size businesses in the U.S.

“SingleStore is a very fun, exciting place to work — one with fast-paced growth, and plenty of opportunities for learning and professional development! Every day at SingleStore feels like your first day; the same freshness and enthusiasm encourages you to give it your best at each step. Most importantly, there are so many incredibly supportive and talented people around who inspire you, and help you perform better each day.” — Grace Park, Talent Acquisition Partner

At SingleStore, culture is woven into the fabric of our company. We treat company culture like we do our database — consciously working to tweak and iterate based on feedback, ensuring the best possible experience for everyone.

Here are just a few ways we create a workplace that people look forward to being a part of.

At SingleStore, we believe diversity unlocks creativity, and that the best ideas come from more than one perspective. That’s made us a community where members learn, adapt and thrive. We’ve discovered our company’s continued success depends on people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience — and we welcome individuals to come as you are to share your interests (and not just the database-related ones). We proudly own our responsibility as a leader in furthering impactful, industry-changing initiatives.

“DEIB is a result of the focus we put on our employee experience, and our commitment to ensuring every employee can have an impact at SingleStore. By cultivating a community that values each other, we are able to find our individual and collective purpose.” — Jorah Ryken, Director of Employee Engagement

It’s no secret the best ideas often come from breaking the mold. And while our company value of innovation forward means we constantly work to achieve greatness through simplicity, quality and intelligence, we also believe in making room for passion projects.

Throughout the year, you can catch our engineering teams chipping away at proposed features and capabilities for SingleStoreDB when we host internal hackathons, which see a large number of submissions both from individual and team contributors — and where no idea is too big.

That being said, we know the time comes for our employees to step away from their computers and dedicate time to interests outside of work, including volunteering and charitable initiatives. At SingleStore, the time our employees devote to these efforts is just as important as the time they spend moving our company forward.

What matters to our employees matters to us. And to demonstrate that,  we match charitable donations (reaching over $30,000 in 2022), as well as provide paid volunteer time off.

Since our inception in 2011 (when we were known as MemSQL), SingleStore has been committed to the growth of our company — which in the last few years has hit a stratospheric rise. We’ve seen several rounds of funding, doubled our headcount and been recognized as leaders and innovators by industry analysts and reports.

Even as we’ve grown — and faced times of economic uncertainty — we’ve been committed to hiring, training and retaining talent that continues to expand our global reach and impact. Our executive leadership team operates with a spirit of transparency, efficacy and integrity, and continues to do so everyday.
