SMASHING 2017! We’re One of INC. Magazine’s 50 Best Workplaces!


Smashtech has been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.


Hitting newsstands today in the June 2017 issue, and as part of a prominent inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies– and Smashtech made it to the top 50!

“We’re both proud and humbled to be part of this prestigious group. We believe that you can’t have progress without people, and this is why one of our main goals as a company is to foster a unique company culture that is true to our beliefs as founders,” says Omar Imani, Co-Founder of Smashtech.

Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent. What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. Magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes the two work together.

For Anwar Husain, Co-Founder of Smashtech, this is one of the most rewarding moments of his career. “We’ve been reading Inc. Magazine since we were kids. We have always wanted to build something great, so this truly is a proud moment for my brother Omar and I. It gives us validation and inspires us to keep improving in our journey to build something bigger than ourselves.”

“By introducing an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.” says Eric Schurenberg, Inc.’s President and Editor In Chief.
