Kodiak Robotics Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2022
Mountain View, CA, (May 10, 2022) – Kodiak Robotics, Inc., a leading self-driving trucking company, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. The list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility.
Kodiak’s team of industry veterans and pioneers is deeply focused on its mission to make self-driving trucks a reality so that people, partners and the planet thrive. Kodiak delivers freight between Dallas and Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, and Atlanta utilizing its industry-leading technology. The Kodiak Driver, the company’s self-driving technology purpose-built for long-haul trucks, has an advanced technology stack designed to make trucking safer and more efficient. Recently, the company announced partnerships with U.S. Xpress and CEVA Logistics.
“Every single person on our team is laser focused on building the trucking industry’s most advanced self-driving technology to make roads safer, greener and more efficient,” said Don Burnette, Founder and CEO of Kodiak Robotics. “Each of us at Kodiak works alongside some of the best and brightest minds in engineering. That kind of passion is infectious and creates a collaborative environment that delivers personal and professional satisfaction.”
After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.
“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
