New York, NY – January 5, 2022 — Built In, an online community for tech companies, today announced that for the second year in a row, Dataminr has been named to its esteemed 2022 Best Places To Work Awards.

In addition to long-standing benefits, this year Dataminr enhanced global employee benefits with more inclusive offerings such as a comprehensive fertility program that provides equal access to fertility care regardless of gender, sexual orientation, fertility diagnosis, or geographic location.

These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s tech professionals seek.”
Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and companywide programming.
