January 12, 2023
AUSTIN, Texas — Outdoorsy was honored as the only travel and hospitality company to earn a designation on Built In’s 2023 Best Places To Work Awards list. Outdoorsy ranked No. 83 on the list of Austin’s 100 Best Places to Work and No. 39 on the list of Austin’s 100 Best Midsize Places to Work, according to a release.
Built In’s annual awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in large tech markets across the U.S.
“I could not be more proud of the Outdoorsy team for all the contributions they’ve made this past year to continue to put the customer first, to make the outdoors accessible to all — and, ultimately, to make Outdoorsy a household name,” said Outdoorsy’s co-founder and CEO Jeff Cavins. “It’s an honor and achievement in its own right to be in the company of the other inspirational leaders and innovative companies on this list.”
Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation and benefits. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.
“It’s my honor to congratulate this year’s Best Places to Work winners,” says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “These exemplary companies understand their people are their most valuable asset, and they’ve stepped up to meet the modern professional’s new expectations, including the desire to work for companies that deliver purpose, growth and inclusion. These winners set the stage for a human-centered future of work, and we can’t wait to see that future unfold.”
Outdoorsy has experienced accelerated growth since its founding in 2014, taking RV travel mainstream as one of the most desirable, accessible, and affordable vacation options for consumers. The company celebrated $2 billion in total transactions in October 2022, just a year and a half after celebrating $1 billion in total transactions in March 2021. Its RV insurtech, Roamly, which underpins the marketplace, continues to experience accelerated year-on-year growth upwards of 200%.
“This Built In recognition is a direct reflection of the collaboration, dedication, and work our team has invested in building a company culture that rallies around our values — to always do the right thing and to amplify the positives — and we’re excited to keep this upward momentum going in the year ahead,” said Outdoorsy’s VP of People Cindy Strong.
