EatStreet named one of Madison’s top places to work

Company marries best of Madison, Silicon Valley

MADISON, Wis. – Madison Magazine has selected EatStreet as one of the city’s 25 best places to work as part of its annual survey released this month.

EatStreet, which continues to move Madison’s tech scene forward, ranked fifth in the large category that includes businesses with 100-plus employees. From its new dog-friendly office that always has beer on tap, to the work-hard play-hard mentality, EatStreet has brought an authentic tech culture to Madison that’s on par with Silicon Valley, according to the magazine.

“We’re incredibly grateful to be included in this group of companies that we respect and admire so much,” said Matt Howard, CEO and co-founder of EatStreet. “I’m so thankful to all our EatStreet employees – past and present. From late nights in apartments, to long days in our first office, to our newest digs, this growth has happened solely because of them.”

EatStreet recently moved into a new Madison office complete with game room, rooftop terrace, bar and every tech amenity its team needs to continue to advance its online food-ordering business.

But, a good space isn’t enough to create a great place to work. It comes down to the people, leadership and culture.

“I love that the best ideas are always heard and always valued, no matter where they come from,” Kaitlyn Skalet, customer support supervisor at EatStreet, told Madison Magazine.

Madison Magazine’s Best Places to Work survey begins with an open call to businesses for nominations. All employees are sent a 60-question web-based survey from an independent company to measure:

  • Communication and resources. 
  • Individual needs. 
  • Manager effectiveness. 
  • Personal engagement. 
  • Team dynamics. 
  • Trust in leadership. 

 

The results are compiled and analyzed to determine which organizations have the highest levels of employee engagement, according to Madison Magazine.
