We're happy to have some good news to share today. Crain's New York Business has named Rocketrip one of its 100 Best Places to Work. There are so many great places to work in New York City, including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and - depending on how you feel about animal smells - the Bronx Zoo. The fact that none of those places made Crain's list suggests it really is a remarkable achievement to be included.
In all seriousness, we're truly honored to be recognized as one of New York's best workplaces. Rocketrip's founder and CEO, Dan Ruch, spoke for all of us here when he said:
"Assembling the right team has always been our top priority, as well as the biggest factor behind our growth. At Rocketrip, we'd like to be known as the place people go to do challenging work and build an outstanding career."
