Each year, the Chicago Tribune highlights the best places to work in Chicago. Sprout Social is honored to be included on the list for the second year in a row. This recognition is particularly exciting because it is based on the results of an employee feedback survey that measures several aspects of workplace culture.

“We pride ourselves on creating an employee-first environment at Sprout,” said Jim Conti, Director of Talent. “We’re really grateful for the Tribune’s recognition of these efforts and the way that our culture has evolved organically along with our team.”

Sprout—the company, team and platform—is built upon the value of open communication, and our culture is a testament to that. People at Sprout are empowered to take on projects and challenges that interest them and support their growth, both professionally and as engaged members of the greater Chicago and technology communities.

We take pride in solving problems and building world class products, but we also find time to come together, celebrate one another’s interests and connect at events like our monthly happy hour, regular Lightning Lunches and annual canoe trip. Many of our team initiatives, like all-company volunteer days and hosting community events, have stemmed from employees’ interest and leadership.

Thank you to every member of Team Sprout for their hard work, vision and dedication. Want to join our team? Visit Sprout Careers to learn more about who we are and what we do.
