HostGator is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best web hosting companies in the world. They recently signed a deal with Google to offer free Web services in India as part of a joint venture over the next several years. On the heels of the announcement, the company has also been rated as one of the top 10 places to work in the Texas capital of Austin. The ranking was determined through a survey of employees, sponsored by the Austin American Statesman online news portal.
HostGator offered an official press release in light of the survey results reiterating its commitment to its employees and the community of Austin. The statement read in part, “We provide employees with many extras including game rooms, an office gym, free catered lunch every day and many more extra perks that we feel helps create a great workplace in which people want to succeed.” The statement went on to reiterate HostGator’s commitment to a company culture which promotes the very best in all employees.
According to survey results, HostGator’s number 10 ranking is due to company strengths such as working conditions, workplace execution, career advancement, and management quality. The company originally expanded into Austin in spring 2010, with a plan to hire 200 local residents. They now employ 267 people in the area, with plans to hire an additional 250 employees over the course of the next year.
